Worthington National Bank Expands to Sundance Square
New Location Brings Quality Customer Service With an Air of Cowtown Flare
FORT WORTH, Texas – January 19, 2006 – With the motto “We don’t just close deals, we open relationships,” Tarrant County-based Worthington National Bank opened its second location on January 19, 2006, in Sundance Square. 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. The bank is located at 500 Main Street at the corner of 4th and Main in Downtown, Fort Worth.
Worthington National Bank offers checking, savings, money market and loans, and puts a priority on relationship-based banking. There are no 1-800 numbers and no automated phone systems. Worthington National Bank believes in honest work and tireless commitment. Their philosophy is that all companies are treated the same and clients are a name, not a number.
“Customers always get a human on the other end of the line,” says Greg Morse, chief executive officer of Worthington National Bank. “We built our bank one satisfied customer at a time and know that if you take care of your customers, the numbers will take care of themselves.”
Morse entertains and enforces the belief that his officers should be out visiting their clients personally rather than the clients coming to the bank to do business. Officers perform beyond this expectation and have even been known to visit their clients in the hospital.
Another unique feature that Worthington offers is the opening up of its board room and facilities for use of non-profits and social groups.
John Boswell, Chairman of the Board said, “Morse has a good work ethic and morals, and he encourages his employees to be involved in the community and charities just as he is.”
Other Board members include State Representatives Charlie Geren and Toby Goodman, Tim Carter, and Mojy Haddad.
Worthington National has put a special emphasis on the historical renovation and interior design of its downtown location. They have focused on restoring the building as closely as possible to its original appearance. There are many original pieces of Texas art that accentuate the Cowtown flare. The bank’s art collection has many ties to the community. The largest piece of artwork in the bank's collection is a wall mural painted by Fort Worth's own Emily Guthrie Smith, who taught at Texas Christian University.
Xiang Zhang, a native of China, is the primary artist featured at the bank. Coincidentally, all of Zhang’s drawings are from his experience at Burk Burnett’s The Four Sixes Ranch. Burk Burnett was the original owner of the bank building and is the name of the building today.
