FirstCapital Bank of Texas Wins Statewide Best of Community Banking Award

MIDLAND, Texas – The Independent Bankers Association of Texas (IBAT)—the largest state community banking association in the nation—recently honored FirstCapital Bank of Texas with a Best of Community Banking (BOCB) Award in bronze for its “Keeping Bank Culture Alive” bank culture submission.

2020 marks the 29th year that IBAT has celebrated the outstanding accomplishments of Texas community banks with the BOCB Award. Community banks, such as FirstCapital Bank of Texas, play a critical role in their local communities. The Best of Community Banking competition is designed to honor local banks for their commitment to helping their customers, neighbors, employees, and community. BOCB Awards recognize community banks throughout the state for their innovation, creativity, and success in fulfilling a specific community or internal need. Each submission received a gold, silver, or bronze award in one of five categories: bank culture, community service, financial literacy, marketing and architectural design.

FCB’s award application highlighted the bank’s intentional efforts to keep the company’s culture alive by incorporating a family atmosphere, providing advancement opportunities, and offering a fun and rewarding workplace. By providing a strong work culture, it greatly benefits team members, customers and the communities that they serve. FCB has been a recipient of (BOCB) Awards for the third consecutive year.

“Our intentional bank culture allows us to fulfill our brand promise to our team members: ‘We are family. We serve people. We change lives.’ This atmosphere and culture is what encourages our team members to provide outstanding customer service and the dedication to help our customers and communities in need,” said FCB Chief Executive Officer Brad Burgess.
