“We’re thrilled to have Bette Childress join the Worthington family,” said Greg Morse, chief executive officer of the bank. “With her leadership, we anticipate promising growth in our commercial lending sector.”

Childress’ priorities will include expanding and retaining commercial relationships in the Fort Worth business community. Childress will also be cultivating additional business development opportunities through the bank, the bank said in a news release.
