To our Clients and Shareholders:
2014 was another successful year for The Bank of San Antonio thanks to the dedication of our talented team members who worked together to serve our customers. As of December 2014, The Bank of San Antonio reported total assets of $475 million, which is an increase of $62 million from last year, and an increase of $450 million since we first opened our doors in June 2007.
One full year after the acquisitions of Luhn-McCain Insurance Agency, Ltd. and San Antonio Capital and Trust, these non-bank subsidiaries have integrated smoothly into The Bank of San Antonio business model and are already providing substantial contributions to our business and private banking clients, as well as our operating results.
As we have grown over the years, we have never lost focus on engaging the most enthusiastic, well-trained financial professionals in the market. That focus extends to our leadership. Brandi Vitier, previously Senior Vice President of Commercial Banking, will now serve as Executive Vice President of Commercial and Healthcare Banking. In this new role, she will lead a team of bankers tasked to enhance service for businesses and their owners. Since 2008, Vitier has led numerous important efforts for The Bank of San Antonio, including the successful openings of the Stone Oak and Pearl offices. Brandi joins Rob Glenn, Executive Vice President, both of whom report to Alan Smith, Chief Lending Officer.
Patti Wilson has been promoted to Executive Vice President, joining our executive team as Director of Human Resources. Bringing over 20 years of experience from Chase Bank and its predecessors, Wilson will provide employees with the opportunities, resources, and training needed to help them operate at the top of the banking and financial industry.
We’ve also worked hard to meet the needs of our customers. Effective January 7, 2014, we opened the doors at our relocated Stone Oak office. The new office is now conveniently located at 227 N. Loop 1604 East, Suite #140, only 300 yards away from the original location. Vice President Stephanie Dick will lead this office.
The Bank of San Antonio is a hometown bank with global reach. This vision and your continued support have built a solid foundation for our growth as a strong and profitable bank – a bank to make you proud to be a shareholder and client.
We are excited about the year ahead of us. Thank you again for your support and confidence.
