Fidelity Bank opened its doors for business in September 2003 with $8 million in capital and a handful of employees. Today, our capital exceeds $40 million, the bank’s total assets exceed $400 million and we have 73 employees serving customers at six locations throughout our North Texas market.
Unequivocally, the primary reason for our steady growth is our employees. Using numerous peer metrics, our staff ranks among the best in Texas. Their collective industry experience, coupled with a strong commitment to providing great customer service, continues to be a major referral source for new business at our bank. Their commitment to service extends beyond banking hours through their involvement in local organizations and charities. Inasmuch, Fidelity Bank is a major contributor to many events in our North Texas market that depend on corporate and private dollars to fund services to people in need.
Financially, Fidelity Bank has always enjoyed steady growth in loans, deposits and equity. Our core strategic focus is taking care of existing customers and aggressively seeking new customers.
If you are already a customer, I would like to personally thank you for your past and future support of our bank. If you are not our customer, please give us a chance to be YOUR Bank. You can access us in our lobbies, by telephone and online. I look forward to seeing you soon!
