20 Milestones for 20 Years

In December of 1998, our seven founders created a bank committed to powering prosperity for our clients, communities and team members. Since that time, we've grown into a public company with over 1,500 employees and $27 billion in assets. Join us as we reflect on some of the most significant milestones of our first 20 years and celebrate the relationships we've built along the way.


Our story begins December 18, 1998, when Texas Capital Bank was formed.

Texas Capital Bank reached over 1,500 full-time employees and $27 billion in assets just in time to celebrate our 20th anniversary. In honor of this milestone, Texas Capital Bank rallied employees across our Texas locations to participate in a statewide community service effort to serve meals to the hungry in our communities.
