Independent Bank Group, the McKinney-based holding company for Independent Bank, announced Wednesday that it has completed the construction of a new bank location in Dallas.

Coming on the heels of Independent Bank Group’s recent acquisition of the Highland Village-based United Community Bank, the new central Dallas location in the Rosewood Court building gives Independent Bank Group 23 locations in the Dallas area.

The addition of the Dallas location adds to Independent Bank Group’s rapidly expanding list of full-service banking centers throughout Texas. David Brooks, Chairman and CEO of Independent Bank Group, understands the value of having a centrally located bank in Dallas.

“The Dallas location is a great addition to our community banks throughout Texas,” Brooks said in a news release. “Our customers in Dallas can expect the same great personal service and fast answers that have been the hallmark of our bank, known for its commitment to its customers and community for nearly a century.”

Dan Strodel, Independent Bank Dallas Market President, will be in charge of the new Dallas location. Strodel has 29 years of banking and financial services experience in the Dallas area with various leadership roles, and is excited about the opportunity to grow Independent Bank Group’s Dallas presence.

“Independent Bank is growing and thriving,” Strodel said in a news release. “I am excited to work for a forward-thinking company that knows how to grow the right way while maintaining the customer-focused values that made them great.”

Brooks said Strodel is an experienced, proven leader with a bright future.

“Dan possesses a unique skillset and knowledge of the Dallas banking community that is a great asset for our company,” Brooks said. “He is driven to succeed, has a firm knowledge about how to properly grow our lending capabilities and is skilled at developing relationships with people.”

Opening the Dallas location brings Independent Bank Group’s aggregate holdings to 32 banking locations, over 330 employees, and two full-service mortgage offices, with combined assets of more than $1.6 billion.
