On May 26, Birmingham, Alabama-based BBVA USA announced the opening of 11 new branches across five Texas markets, marking a major milestone in an endeavor first announced in June 2020. The branches, which opened in early May, feature updated models aligned with the bank’s vision of integrating both a digital and face-to-face branch banking experience for customers. The bank’s new branches are located in the Houston, Austin, San Antonio, Fort Worth and Dallas markets.
On June 1, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania-based PNC Financial Services Group Inc. completed its acquisition of Houston-based BBVA USA Bancshares Inc. and its U.S. banking unit, BBVA USA. The acquisition makes Columbus, Ohio-based PNC Bank the fifth-largest U.S. commercial banking organization with more than $560 billion in assets and a coast-to-coast national franchise.
“As we begin a new chapter with PNC, I look forward to seeing how much of a positive impact these branches will make in their surrounding communities,” says Javier Rodriguez Soler, president and CEO of BBVA USA. “These branches are a testament to the continuous focus and effort our team has shown over the years to make this a reality. Today marks a major win for both the employees who worked tirelessly on this project and the customers who will benefit from these branches.”
The new branches were structured to boast a smaller layout—with an average size of 2,600 square feet—and are located in retail centers instead of stand-alone buildings. In addition, five of the new branches are in low- to moderate-income neighborhoods.
“This project has been a huge undertaking for our teams and we are excited to see these branches get integrated into PNC’s expanding Texas presence,” says Cody Sparks, relationship model discipline leader. “To watch these branches and their modern capabilities take form, from abstract ideas to full-service, physical locations, has been both a professional and personal point of pride for myself, my team and our branch employees.”
