Worthington National Bank Announces Expansion of its Sundance Square Location
Growing Bank Brings Quality Customer Service with an Air of Cowtown Flare
FORT WORTH, Texas – January 2, 2007 – With the motto, “We don’t just close deals, we open relationships,” Tarrant County-based Worthington National Bank announces its plans for expanding its Sundance Square location. Located on the first floor of the Burk Burnett Building at the corner of 4th and Main, the bank will now occupy the entire second floor as part of its operations. The additional floor will include 4,445 square feet, which will be used as the bank continues to grow. This expansion comes just a year to the date of the location’s grand opening. Nestled away in the Burk Burnett Building, this beautifully renovated facility has been closely restored to the original bank once housed there in the early 1900’s.
“Worthington National Bank has experienced significant growth in 2006, and our Fort Worth location has allowed us to grow our assets approximately 100% during 2006. We will fill our additional space with more lenders and cash management personnel,” said Greg Morse, chief executive officer of Worthington National Bank.
Not only did the bank open its third location in 2006, it completed a $15 million capital campaign in just two months. Although the bank’s twenty-year plan did not call for a capital campaign until 2007, the bank felt it was the appropriate time to take on this initiative. The capital generated from the campaign allowed Worthington National Bank to increase its loan limit and repurchase $15 million in loans that were sold. Additionally, it paved the way for future locations, as well as the opportunity to take advantage of possible merger and acquisition opportunities.
