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 banking journey began in 1973, when a group of investors organized by Doyle purchased First State Bank of Hitchcock. The group set goals and successfully established a network of community banks in all ten incorporated cities in Galveston County by the end of the Twentieth Century. Now, 43 years after Texas First Bank began, we have 23 banking centers and 53 ATM locations in Southeast Texas across six counties - Galveston, Brazoria, Chambers, Harris, Jefferson, and Liberty - to serve our customers. With innovative products like Online and Mobile Banking, we are virtually available for banking services 24 hours a day, anywhere in the world. 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.
