by Austin Bank 14. November 2019 16:00

Successful organizations are comprised of many different departments, which must work well with each other, often relying heavily on cross-departmental collaboration.  This month’s Star works in a department many might take for granted, but without her efforts, Austin Bank would not be able to open their doors each day for business.  Please join us in congratulating Mary Mire, Accounts Payable Clerk in Jacksonville, on her selection as the November Star of the Month.

As an Accounts Payable Clerk, Mary is the key person for keeping the lights on at Austin Bank.  From utility bills to expense reports, she is responsible for processing thousands of invoices every month and always does so with a smile on her face.  Working daily with employees from multiple departments and all locations, she excels in communication and teamwork, working to understand the needs of each of those with whom she speaks.  “Mary is always helpful – no matter how many times a day I interact with her.  She is courteous, thorough and follows through – always in a timely manner,” shares Patty Steelman, EVP/Director of Marketing, Whitehouse.  “Thank goodness she does not seem to tire of my endless questions.”

With more than ten years of banking experience, Mary worked as a Teller for the Bank before moving to her current role.  She has been a member of the Austin Bank team since 2011.  A graduate of West Rusk Consolidated ISD, Mary attended Tyler Junior College.  She and her husband, Clifton Mire, Jr., are residents of Chandler.  They have two children, five grandchildren and one great-grandchild.  Mary is a member of the First United Methodist Church in Chandler where she is part of the Bell choir.  She also performs at area festivals and events as a member of the Cherokee Cloggers, and is a member of the Texas Troublemakers cowboy shooting club.


“Mary is always willing to help a branch or vendor when they call needing status of a payment.  She works especially hard to process expense reports as quick as possible to keep our department’s most important customers – our coworkers – happy.”

Sandy Rayburn, SEVP/Chief Financial Officer, Jacksonville

“Mary has an amazing attitude EVERY day.  She shows up early and works hard to provide the best service possible when processing accounts payable.  She is happy and helpful to everyone she encounters.”

Misde Shillings, SVP/Controller, Jacksonville

“Mary is one of the most caring, dependable and hard-working employees that I have had the privilege to work with.  In all situations she sets a wonderful example by maintaining a willing and positive attitude that makes me want to be a better co-worker and friend.”

Debbie Colville, SVP/Cashier, Jacksonville
