October 2016 - Star of the Month - Michael Mendez

by Austin Bank 12. October 2016 11:46

This month’s Star is relatively new to the Austin Bank family.  However, he has found his spot and earned high praise from not only his immediate co-workers, but those in other departments as well as customers.  Please join in congratulating Michael Mendez, Customer Service Representative from Nacogdoches, as our October Star of the Month.

Michael joined the Austin Bank team in 2014, bringing 6 years prior Teller experience from another bank in Nacogdoches.  Janis LaFleur, Bookkeeping Clerk in Longview Greggton, shares, “Michael is a wonderful CSR.  He always goes above and beyond when I need his help taking care of issues that come up with debit cards.”  Described as an employee who cares not only about Austin Bank and the day to day operations, it is noted that he cares even more about his customers and co-workers.  A member of the Nacogdoches Chamber of Commerce, he took the initiative to involve the Nacogdoches office in their local Corporate Challenge event.  It proved to be a huge team-building event and helped bring everyone in the office closer together.


A resident of Nacogdoches, Michael graduated from Nacogdoches High School and attended Angelina College.  Michael and his family are a close-knit group and very well respected in the area.  They recently held a fundraiser selling homemade enchiladas to help a friend in need.  A man of many interests, Michael enjoys traveling with friends and family, attending music concerts, anything Star Wars related and the Dallas Cowboys.



“Michael works extremely hard as a Customer Service Representative.  He gives 100% when working with each of his customers, and he is a joy to have in our office.”


Teressa Karns, Retail Office Manager, Nacogdoches


“We receive compliments often from customers regarding Michael.  He lights up when they walk in the door and he has a wonderful ability to make everyone feel ‘at home’.  We are fortunate to have Michael on our team.”


Francis Spruiell, Regional President, Nacogdoches


“Michael never misses an opportunity to pass out a compliment.  He is always willing to help whenever an issue presents itself.”


Janis LaFleur, Bookkeeping Clerk, Longview Greggton
