Kansas-based CrossFirst Bank is entering the Fort Worth market and has named veteran Fort Worth banker Cody Kiser as market president.
CrossFirst Bank is a subsidiary of CrossFirst Bankshares Inc. of Leawood, Kansas, and the bank said it has received regulatory approval to open a full-service bank at 100 Throckmorton St., Suite 150, in Fort Worth.
As Fort Worth market president, Kiser will be responsible for opening the new location and building a team of experienced bankers dedicated to delivering extraordinary service to businesses, professionals, individuals, and their families.
“Fort Worth is my hometown and a vibrant and growing community made up of passionate individuals and leaders,” CrossFirst Bank President Randy Rapp said in a statement. “Cody is a dynamic banking industry leader who is deeply invested in the community. He’s the perfect fit to spearhead our efforts to launch and grow our presence in the market.”
Veteran Fort Worth banker
Kiser is a veteran Fort Worth banker serving the business needs of Tarrant County over the past 17 years.
He has served in executive and leadership roles, with a particular focus on community involvement and forging relationships with local, closely held businesses, CrossFirst said.
“I am thrilled to leverage my tenure in the Fort Worth market to grow the bank’s presence,” Kiser said in a statement. “We will bring a level of banking to the businesses and professionals of Tarrant County that can only be described as extraordinary.”
CrossFirst Fort Worth said it has a temporary office at 420 Throckmorton St., Suite 250, with plans to relocate to its permanent branch location late this summer.
Since 2007, CrossFirst has grown its presence throughout the state of Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, Arizona, and most recently, New Mexico and Colorado.
