Bank of Texas, a division of BOK Financial, expanded its operations into the San Antonio market, marking the bank’s first move outside of its established operations in Dallas, Houston and Fort Worth, TX.
Mark M. Johnson will take the helm as chairman of the San Antonio market. Johnson has more than 50 years of banking experience. He started his banking career with Texas Commerce Bank in Houston and ultimately moved into the role of president and chief operating officer with National Bancshares of Texas in San Antonio. He spent the past 20 years of his career in several executive positions with Texas Capital Bank, most recently as managing director and vice chairman.
“We are thrilled to bring our brand of full-service, relationship-focused financial services to San Antonio,” Mark Wade, CEO of Bank of Texas, said. “We have been searching for the right team to lead our San Antonio operations and couldn’t be more excited to have Mark Johnson and Parker Hensley leading this charge. Both are well respected in the financial sector and are passionate about forming relationships and driving growth. We are leading with a talented commercial, wealth and treasury team that will be aligned with the San Antonio community and will provide best in class service.”
“I’m greatly excited about the opportunity to work with such a highly regarded and successful organization committed to building a best-in-class team and bank in San Antonio,” Johnson said.
Hensley will take on the role of president for the San Antonio market after having served as Amegy’s senior vice president and team lead for commercial and corporate banking in San Antonio.
“San Antonio is such a dynamic and fast-growing market,” Hensley said. “I think the Bank of Texas model of relationship first is the perfect fit for this community. As we grow our team and our services offered, I’m eager to meet the needs of our San Antonio neighbors.”
“We believe that this is a great time to grow our presence in this vibrant state,” Stacy Kymes, president and CEO of BOK Financial, said. “Even though we’re seeing some turbulence in the industry, we believe the strength and stability of our franchise will be very attractive to consumers, businesses and wealth clients in San Antonio.”
