Locally owned and operated since 1900 Austin Bank is excited to be in Cleveland!

Who is Austin Bank?

For 110 years and four generations, the Austin Family has been deeply ingrained and involved in the Texas banking industry.  Since 1909 when John F. Austin, Sr. became a founder of First State Bank of Frankston, and continuing throughout war, the Great Depression, and the turbulence of an oil boom, the Austins bring honor to their industry with strong leadership, active involvement in their communities and enduring relationships with customers and employees.

"As with any successful business, the strength of our organization lies in our people," shares Jeff Austin, Jr., Chairman of the Board.  "We are proud to claim an outstanding team that not only enthusiastically upholds our Bank's core values of honesty and integrity, but also actively supports the communities we serve."  

Austin Bank is pleased to have Mike Penry, VP/Relationship Manager, and Tasha Childress, VP/Retail Market Manager, join the team to help with the establishment of Austin Bank in Cleveland.  These individuals have lengthy banking histories and excellent reputations for their community service.  We will look to them to continue the Austin Bank legacy in Liberty County.
