On July 29, McKinney-based Independent Bank Group Inc. announced the appointment of Paul Langdale as chief financial officer. He is replacing Michelle Hickox, who has served as CFO of Independent Bank Group Inc. and its subsidiary, Independent Bank, since 2012. She will remain employed in an advisory capacity to facilitate the transition until October 1.
“I am tremendously grateful for Michelle’s leadership over the years,” says David R. Brooks, chairman and CEO. “She was instrumental in helping us emerge as a public company through our IPO in 2013, and she has since led our accounting and finance teams through a period of rapid growth. We wish her the best and we look forward to building on the work she has done as our company continues to grow and evolve.”
Langdale joined the company in 2018 and has held increasingly senior positions in finance, investor relations and corporate development, most recently serving as executive vice president/corporate development and strategy. He began his banking career in 2010. He served as vice president/strategic services for PlainsCapital Corp. until mid-2013, when he left to pursue an MBA degree at the University of Texas–Austin. While in Austin, he was active in the private equity and venture capital industry, serving as a venture fellow and working with early-stage companies in financial technology and other industries. Langdale holds a BA degree and an MBA degree from the University of Texas–Austin.
“Paul has proven himself to be a great strategic partner to me and the board as we position the organization for future growth and development,” Brooks says. “His deep understanding of complex finance and technology disciplines, coupled with the strong relationships he’s built across the organization, give the board and I great confidence that he is the ideal strategic CFO to help us execute our plan.”
Established in 1988, Independent Bank operates in four market regions located in the Dallas/Fort Worth, Austin and Houston areas in Texas, as well as the Colorado Front Range area, including Denver, Colorado Springs and Fort Collins.
