Odessa, Texas — March 26, 2018

SouthWest Bank was recently named one of the 2018 Best Companies to Work for in Texas. The awards program is a project of Texas Monthly, the Texas Association of Business, Texas Society for Human Resources Management, and Best
Companies Group.

The statewide survey and awards program was designed to identify, recognize and honor the
best places of employment in Texas, benefiting the state’s economy, workforce and businesses.
Companies across the state entered the two-part survey process that evaluated employee
experiences and company’s workplace policies, systems, philosophies, practices, and
demographics to determine the Best Companies to Work for in Texas.

The 2018 Best Companies to Work for in Texas list is made up of 100 companies. SouthWest
Bank ranked 23 out of 44 in the small company category.

“This is a great honor, and we wouldn’t have received this recognition if it weren’t for all of our
employees. They have all helped shape our bank into a great workplace environment. We
employ people that strive to be the best in many aspects of their lives – whether it’s serving our
customers or our communities. To support their individual goals, we encourage our employees
to attend various training programs, participate in local events, and to be active in the
communities we serve. We also recognize their efforts as part of our core values and leadership
program,” said Dewey Bryant, CEO of SouthWest Bank.
