Innovative competition in the banking industry is a concern for most advisors, consultants, and community bank leaders seeking strategic opportunities. It’s one of the reasons Texas Bankers Association holds annual merger & acquisition (M&A) and opportunity conferences, which are events to bring banking professionals together in a forum. Nexbank, one of the largest and oldest banks in Dallas, TX was represented by President John Holt, who served as a panelist. As guest speaker he discussed reinventing community banking and perceptions on innovative competition.
