New full-service bank coming to downtown Fort Worth

Bank SNB, a subsidiary of Southwest Bancorp Inc., will expand its current loan production office located in downtown Fort Worth to a full-service branch. Southwest Bancorp filed an application for a full-service office on Nov. 3. Brian Lixey, a veteran commercial banker with more than 18 years of banking and management experience, will lead Bank SNB’s team as market president.

Nathan Hoffman and Trey Ramsey will join Lixey as commercial bankers. Also joining the team are Shana Crawford and Jenny Halford. “We believe that our team of local bankers, led by Brian Lixey, knows and understands the Fort Worth community,” said Bank SNB President and CEO Mark Funke. “They will be instrumental in delivering the community style of banking that Bank SNB has been known for since 1894.” Through Bank SNB, Southwest Bankcorp Inc. offers commercial and consumer lending, deposit and investment services, and other financial services from offices in Oklahoma, Texas and Kansas. Southwest is headquartered in Stillwater, Okla., and its common stock is traded on the Nasdaq Global Select Market under the symbol OKSB.
