The Woodlands-based Woodforest National Bank recently appointed Umesh "Mike" Jain, CPA, to its board of directors. He migrated to the U.S. in 1981, becoming a U.S. citizen in 1987. In 1986, he founded Jain & Jain PC Accountants and Tax Consultants, an accounting firm that focuses primarily on assurance and tax services for privately held businesses in Houston.
Jain is currently a member of the Texas Lieutenant Governor’s Advisory Board consisting of 55 Texas business and industry leaders. He is also a member of the State of Texas Office of Small Business Assistance Advisory Task Force and the audit committee of Greater Houston Community Foundation.
“Mike is a longtime investor and friend of the bank, and has considerable experience in the banking industry, having served as a board member for a number of successful banks and businesses in the Houston area,” says Jay Dreibelbis, president and CEO of Woodforest National Bank. “He is a prominent and respected businessman who has actively participated in the growth of our community. His wide circle of influence in the Houston banking and business communities made him a natural choice to complement our team."
Established in 1980, Woodforest National Bank operates more than 750 branches in 17 states across the U.S.
