Harlingen-based Texas Regional Bank has opened a loan production office in Forney. This follows the bank’s acquisition of AccessBank in 2021, which added five offices to its network. In addition to Forney, the bank has plans to open several banking centers in the East Dallas region within the next 12 to 18 months.
The Forney LPO is under the leadership of James Huggins, East Dallas regional market president. Huggins, who has 43 years of banking experience, will operate in the LPO while the bank’s Forney banking center is built. Construction will begin within six months and be completed in 12 to 18 months.
“We want to be an integral part of the communities we serve,” Huggins says. This includes financial literacy workshops, community outreach programs, sponsorships and partnerships with local businesses and nonprofit organizations.
Established in 1987, Texas Regional Bank operates 30 banking centers across the Rio Grande Valley, Texas Hill Country, Houston and Dallas/Fort Worth metroplex.
