Jeff Williams, president/CEO of Grandview Bank, announces that the bank has entered into an agreement to acquire the current home of Community National Bank & Trust at 2500 S.W. Wilshire Blvd. in Burleson and plans to open its fifth location at that site, pending regulatory approval.
“Grandview Bank has been serving residents and businesses here in Johnson County for over 130 years and we’ve been looking for an opportunity to have a Burleson location for years,” Williams said. “This location is convenient to major residential areas and businesses, and we can hardly wait to for approval to open. Equally important, this two-story building has a spacious meeting room that we will make available for community organizations seeking a space that offers comfort and plenty of room to spread out.”
Williams will file for regulatory approval with the Texas Department of Banking and the FDIC and hopes to receive approval in time to open by Thanksgiving.
“Due to our strong relationships throughout Johnson County, we have already been doing business with Burleson residents and businesses with both loans and deposits,” Williams said. “Our customers appreciate that we are a local bank with local management and local decision-making, along with cutting edge technology that make banking through our app and online easily accessible.”
Under the agreement, with regulatory approval, Community National Bank & Trust will vacate the building and Grandview Bank will commence operations by the end of this year.
Anticipating a location in Burleson, Grandview Bank hired a well-known Burleson banker, Bobby Lackey, who spent more than four years at National Bank of Texas in Burleson, and who has a total of 13 years as a Johnson County banker in Burleson, Joshua and Cleburne. He joined Grandview Bank in early 2020.
Lackey is a member of the Burleson Rotary Club, where he serves as president elect.
“I’ve been involved in a number of community activities in Burleson, from the United Way to the chamber of commerce, and I’m excited to help open the Grandview Bank location at the same approximate time that I will be president of the Burleson Rotary Club,” he said. “I look forward to helping grow my relationships in the Burleson area as we help our local residents enjoy a grand view of their financial future!”
