In July of 1977, Sharon Mull made the decision to continue her banking career with a relatively new independent bank in her adopted hometown of Plano. On the heels of her retirement more than 36 years later, Mull recently received the Shelby Distinguished Service Award, the bank’s employee of the year award named after LegacyTexas Chairman Pat Shelby.

“When my husband and I came to Plano in 1974, this was a small community and a great place for our son and two daughters to grow up,” said Mull. “In 1977, I decided to go to work as a loan secretary for what was then Plano Bank and Trust. We lived so close that I could run home for lunch and put a casserole in the oven for dinner. Now looking back over 36 years, Plano has changed a lot and the bank has grown right along with it. It has been an honor to be a part of this organization.”

Executive Vice President Aaron Shelby says Sharon Mull is an ideal example of what makes the bank unique. “Sharon worked with some of the same customers she began working with four decades ago, and that kind of loyalty is only earned through extraordinary personal service and a genuine commitment to caring for people,” said Shelby. “Sharon’s retirement is bittersweet. We know she will enjoy spending more time with her family, but she will be greatly missed by the Legacy family.”

Mull, who recently retired as an executive lending assistant in the LegacyTexas commercial loan department, says she cannot say enough about the special nature of her employer. “This is the greatest community bank anywhere, bar none,” Mull said. “Customers know that, and it’s the reason Legacy continues to grow. Working with the customers and the leadership of this bank has been one of the great joys of my life. I’ve always said that if you enjoy what you are doing and you enjoy the people around you, it’s not work. That’s exactly how I feel about LegacyTexas Bank.”
