Houston-based Amegy Bank named Diane Maben chief operating officer in June. She was promoted to this newly created position after serving as Amegy Bank’s executive vice president and manager of administrative services. She will continue to provide direction to the operational functions of the bank and partner with the chief executive officer and president on strategic areas of focus, as she did under her previous title.
Maben has more than 40 years of extensive banking experience, holding various positions, including centralized loan center manager and product team manager with Bank United and Washington Mutual. She joined Amegy Bank in 2006 after spending five years at New Choice Builders working in sales and marketing. While at Amegy Bank, Maben managed corporate communication, marketing, product implementations, services and quality management, and other operational functions.
Maben moved to Houston shortly after receiving her bachelor’s degree in economics from Smith College in Northampton, Massachusetts.
“Diane has been an integral part of the operations of Amegy Bank throughout her time here,” says Steve Stephens, CEO. “She adds an impactful dimension to her leadership with many mentoring relationships, and her respected advice extends throughout Amegy and our enterprise, Zions Bancorporation.”
Established in 1990, Amegy Bank has more than 75 locations across Houston, Dallas/Fort Worth and Central Texas.
