Overview

Truth in Texas Banking. That's what we're about. Founded in 2010, we are one of the ten largest banks headquartered in the state of Texas.

Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, we've built a bank forever rooted in truth, transparency, and uncompromising integrity.

We know our strongest asset is the passion, authenticity, and talent of our people. We focus on the growth and development of each team member to unlock potential to "Be Your True Self." Our "True You" culture is made up of five pillars:

    Be Mindful
  1. Be Healthy
  2. Be Better
  3. Be Prosperous
  4. Be Faithful

With this as our foundation, we've built a bank of people who are transparent, tell the truth, and act with integrity. We unite together in common purpose - caring deeply for our clients and communities, communicating openly with each other, and treating everyone with respect. Visit our website at www.VeritexBank.com and come see how we're bringing truth and transparency to Texas banking.
