Texas Capital Bancshares, the parent company of Texas Capital Bank, named Chris Calvert and Claire Harrison market chairman and market president of Austin, TX, respectively.
Since June, Harrison has served as senior vice president of corporate banking for Texas Capital Bank in the bank’s Dallas office. In this role, she helped grow the bank’s corporate banking portfolio, covering companies with more than $250 million in revenue. As market president, Harrison will act as an advisor responsible for the development of new client opportunities and the bank’s overall growth within the market by focusing on collaboration across each line of business.
Calvert has been with Texas Capital Bank for more than 20 years, most recently serving as the region president of Austin, TX, since 2019. With his promotion to market chairman, Calvert will retain his current responsibilities leading corporate and middle market banking in Austin, TX, and will work with Harrison to provide leadership and support to the bank’s team.
“Since joining the bank in June, Claire has proven to be an incredibly valuable member of the corporate banking team and I am confident she will be a great addition to our leadership team in Austin,” Rob C. Holmes, president and CEO of Texas Capital Bank, said. “I am excited for her to work with Chris to increase our visibility and provide additional accountability in this prominent Texas market.”
Texas Capital Bank has implemented a new regional leadership structure, under which each of its key markets in Texas — Dallas, Houston, Austin, Fort Worth and San Antonio — will be led by executives positioned to provide more holistic support internally across product lines and in the communities the bank serves.
“Austin is an important community for Texas Capital Bank, and I am eager to work with Chris to help lead the implementation of our strategic vision in this growing market,” Harrison said. “We have strong client bases throughout Texas and aim to strengthen our market presence in Austin with new and existing clients while continuing the bank’s legacy of corporate citizenship with our community development efforts.”
“It is an honor to be named as the bank’s Austin market chairman and to serve in a position which allows me to focus our team’s efforts on building trusted relationships throughout the region,” Calvert said. “This new market specific leadership structure aligns with the bank’s goal of providing advanced levels of service to our clients and our communities.”
Before joining Texas Capital Bank, Harrison served as director of corporate banking at Regions Bank, where she assisted with the buildout of the bank’s Texas corporate banking portfolio and expansion of the bank’s capital markets platform. Prior to Regions Bank, Harrison served on Amegy Bank’s corporate banking team, managing a loan portfolio of committed capital consisting of private equity investments and corporate clients. She also held various roles at Citi in the trading and sales division.
Calvert joined Texas Capital Bank’s commercial banking group in Austin, TX, in 2000. Prior to his promotion to regional president in March 2019, Calvert served as executive vice president and managed a commercial banking team focused on companies with annual sales between $10 million and $250 million.
Calvert began his banking career with Security Pacific National Bank (Bank of America) in 1985 in Los Angeles. He moved to Austin, TX, in 1987 and worked for First Republic Bank (Bank of America) in various lending officer roles in private banking, commercial real estate and commercial banking. In 1996, he joined Bank One’s (JPMorgan Chase) corporate and technology banking group, which focused on technology companies as well as private and publicly held middle market companies.
