Community Banking by Innovation


John Holt is the President and CEO of NexBank Capital, Inc., and was recently part of a panel of experts discussing local community banking. He served as a panelist at the Texas Bankers Association’s 5th Annual Strategic Opportunities and M&A Conference in New Orleans, Louisiana.

The subject of his panel discussion was using innovation to help increase business and opportunities for community banks. The official title given to the discussion was “Reinventing Community Banking: Perspectives on Competing by Innovation” and was held on November 7, 2016.

The Annual Strategic Opportunities and M&A Conference is a chance for professionals within the community banking industry to network together and learn about the latest concepts which are gaining traction within their industry. The event highlights both challenges and opportunities in the coming months.

One potential avenue in which banks can generate growth is through M&A activity. Mergers and Acquisitions, when they make practical business sense, can provide a potent return on investment. The conference covered this area in detail. Effective ways to increase organic growth were also given the expert’s treatment and a productive time was had by all. Branching was another major area discussed and is still a lucrative way for banks to increase revenues. Simply providing more locations to increase the customer base is a positive way forward for many community banks.

Nexbank is headquartered in Dallas Tx. and is growing at a steady pace. They provide financial services in three primary categories, commercial banking, mortgage banking, and institutional services.
