While we have state of the art facilities and products and West Texas comfort in every branch of First United Bank’s system, that isn’t what makes us a great bank. A great bank is built on great people and we have some of West Texas’ finest. First United Bank treats their people like they should be treated, like family. When employees feel like they are part of a greater cause, a family, then that makes them more effective in providing the best customer experience of any bank in West Texas.

I began working for FUB right out of college and have slowly worked my way up to Vice President. I truly believe that both hard work and a positive attitude do not go unnoticed. Also, because our bank is growing, new positions are constantly being created, which means there are countless opportunities for advancement within the organization.

It is hard to find the words that truly express the way I feel about working for First United Bank because I immediately think of Ray M. Bain, all of his teachings and principles, and my heart gets heavy. Working for First United Bank has been both a fabulous and rewarding experience for me. Our benefits package is a true testament of the Board and Executive Management wanting to provide for and take care of the employees. I am so blessed to be a part of a great organization and to have had the opportunity to build many lasting relationships that are so special to me.
