Dallas-based PlainsCapital Bank recently announced that David Barganski has joined its Corpus Christi lending group as senior vice president/senior commercial loan officer. He has more than 22 years of financial services and entrepreneurial experience. Prior to joining PlainsCapital, Barganski spent eight years overseeing two restaurants in the Coastal Bend area. Under his leadership, both restaurants received performance-based Champions Circle awards for three consecutive years. Before his time as an entrepreneur, he served as senior vice president at BBVA Compass for more than eight years.
“David will be a great asset to our lending team and to the businesses we serve,” says Frank Hastings, Coastal Bend region chairman. “While he’s a seasoned commercial banking professional, David also knows first-hand what it takes to run a business. His background allows him the unique perspective to understand business owners’ financial needs.”
“Managing a business involves significant planning and making key financial decisions to support your short- and long-term goals,” Barganski says. “I’m excited to partner with entrepreneurs in the Coastal Bend area and across the Lone Star State by providing the quality banking products, services and guidance they need to pursue success.”
Barganski received a BBA degree in finance from Texas A&M University–College Station and an MBA degree in finance from Texas A&M University–Corpus Christi.
