Mission & Values
Strong, Solid and Secure — these words are more than hyperbole when describing Texas First Bank. Texas First Bank has maintained its conservative roots through all aspects of market fluctuation. The bank never pursued risky asset investments, like the large banks we are now being forced to support. As a result, the bank continues to be a shining star among all Texas community banks, with the desire and ability to lend money to quality borrowers.
Charles T. "Chuck" Doyle, Chairman of the Board, is a pioneer among Texas community bankers. His desire to serve communities by recruiting quality employees who provide superior customer service, a vast array of state-of-the-art products and a commitment to community involvement has allowed Texas First to position itself among the elite community banks of Texas.
With the addition of Rust-Ewing Insurance Agency, Texas First Mortgage, Texas First SBA Lending and Texas First Investment Center, the bank is more than just a bank; it is a wide-range financial services institution.
Our journey began in 1973 when a group of investors organized by Charles T. Doyle purchased First State Bank of Hitchcock. This group also envisioned and successfully established a banking center in all thirteen incorporated towns in Galveston County by the end of the twentieth century. Following the acquisition of Gulf Coast Bank, Texas First Bank expanded into Harris, Jefferson, Chambers, and Brazoria counties. In 2010, Texas First Bank opened two locations - one in Alvin and one in Mid Jefferson County bringing the number of Banking Centers to twenty. In 2012, Texas First Bank acquired Texas Coastal Bank, with locations in Pasadena and Deer Park, and Houston Business Bank. In 2014, Texas First Bank acquired Hull State Bank with locations in Hull and Liberty, bringing the total number of banking centers to twenty-four. The future has exciting new endeavors for the board of directors and employees of Texas First to provide various means for us to continue to Helping Texans Build Texas.
