As head of corporate banking, Harman will be responsible for directing Texas Capital Bank’s client coverage teams that serve private and public companies within the bank’s footprint as well as certain national industry verticals.
Harman joined Texas Capital Bank from Truist Financial, where she most recently served as North Texas regional president since 2019.

Prior to joining SunTrust, Harman was in charge of developing Fifth Third Bank’s corporate banking presence in the Southwest. She also served as senior vice president at Wells Fargo Bank and served in various roles within the organization, beginning with its predecessor, Wachovia Bank. She began her career at JPMorgan in the corporate and investment bank in New York and Dallas.
“Julia is an experienced executive with a broad understanding of Texas’ corporate banking landscape and I’m excited to welcome her to the Texas Capital Bank team,” Holmes said. “In her prior roles, she has played an integral part in expanding commercial banking efforts while also gaining recognition for her civic and professional leadership. I am confident that Julia is the right individual to lead the corporate banking division of Texas Capital Bank as we continue to grow and enhance our offerings for our larger clients.”
“Julia’s appointment to this newly created role signifies our commitment to bolstering our corporate banking presence and desire to build out a best-in-class commercial and industrial banking effort that serves all segments of the markets we serve,” John Sarvadi, executive managing director of middle market banking at Texas Capital Bank said. “Julia has an accomplished history of exceptional judgment and strategic decision making while advising corporate clients. I look forward to welcoming her to Texas Capital Bank.”
“I am honored to embark on this new chapter with Texas Capital Bank and help the company reach its full potential with its corporate clients,” Harman said. “Texas Capital Bank’s commitment to growing its corporate banking division while strengthening its position as a leading regional bank is something I value deeply. I look forward to working closely with Rob and the leadership team to achieve our objectives.”
