Those in leadership positions have a responsibility to their team.  A large part of that is inspiring the people around you to push themselves to greatness.  The most efficient way to do that is showing them the way by doing it yourself – leading by example.  This is an attitude our July Star has embraced and lives out daily with her staff at Tyler West Loop.  Thank you for your leadership, and congratulations on your selection as our July Star of the Month, Wendee Bailey, Retail Office Manager.

Bringing with her ten years of previous banking experience, Wendee joined the Austin Bank team in 2010 as the Retail Office Manager in Van.  She moved to work as the Teller Operations Supervisor in the busy Tyler Med Center office in 2016 and managed operations in the Noonday office during a transition time in 2018 before moving to her current role at Tyler West Loop in October 2018.  Wendee’s knowledge of the Bank’s policies and procedures; her organizational skills; her dedication to serve her customers and teach her staff have earned her smoothly running offices and respect from her employees and peers.  “Wendee displays great leadership and encourages her staff to do well,” shares Lisa McCoy, SVP/eBanking Manager, Jacksonville.  “She always displays a positive attitude and can be found working alongside staff throughout the office.”


Since becoming the ROM in the West Loop office, Wendee has built a very cohesive team with a great working relationship between all.  She has embraced the challenge of office goals and leads the team to exceed their expectations, always through her example.  In addition to her regular duties, Wendee shares her experience serving as a Mentor for new Bank employees.


Wendee and her husband, Donald, live in Ben Wheeler.  They have three children – Nathan, Cason and Madison – and are very involved with the Van High School FFA program where their children have participated.  They raise all sorts of animals, and Wendee enjoys spending her spare time with family and fishing. 



“Wendee has a ‘we can do it’ attitude. She understands the importance of Austin Bank’s core values and demonstrates them daily – both inside the Bank and out.  Wendee is the person who reminds you of the importance of doing the job the right way the first time while also making coming to work a fun time.”

Margaret Mullinnix, VP/Retail Market Manager, Smith County


“Wendee works very hard to protect the Bank and our customers; she is truly an asset to Austin Bank.  She is always willing to help anyone who reaches out to her.”


Jasiee Harris, Teller Operations Supervisor, Tyler West Loop


“Wendee is someone who strives for excellence; always determined to get the job done accurately.”


Toni Davis, VP/Assistant Retail Market Manager, Tyler Cumberland Park
