SouthWest Bank Celebrates 20th Anniversary

Odessa, Texas — January 29, 2019 — SouthWest Bank announced that it has achieved a milestone of 20 years of successful operation and serving the financial needs of people, businesses and communities in West Texas.

Founded on January 29, 1999, with the objective to provide a banking environment where you can do business with local people you trust, SouthWest Bank has grown from a single location to six branches serving the Odessa, Midland, and Lubbock communities.

“We would like to thank our customers who have been loyal to us over the years and the organizations that have allowed SouthWest Bank to be involved in our wonderful communities,” stated Dewey Bryant, CEO of SouthWest Bank. “As we reflect on the past 20 years, we are proud that we have been able to help build businesses, help people plan and save for the future, and help families purchase homes. All of this would not be possible without the support of our directors and the hard work of our talented employees.”

CEO Bryant continued, “The last 20 years have brought a lot of changes and challenges in our communities and the banking industry, but we have remained dedicated to our mission and remain a strong and stable financial institution.”

SouthWest Bank’s mission is to empower our employees to personally help our customers achieve lifetime financial goals while serving our communities. SouthWest Bank looks forward to the next 20 years and beyond of fulfilling its mission.

SouthWest Bank will continue to celebrate the occasion over the next few months in all branches with special merchandise, events, and promotions.
