Originally called The Texas Bankers Record when established in 1911, the publication changed its name to Texas Banking in the late 1980s.
Founded in 1885, the Texas Bankers Association is a member-centric state organization based in Austin whose members represent the voice of the banking industry within the state and national halls of Austin and Washington, D.C.

State Bank of Texas was founded in 1987 by hotelier Chan Patel and continues to be owned and operated by the Patel family, with Chan Patel (father) serving as CEO, Sushil Patel (son) as President, and Rajan Patel (son) as Chief Lending Officer and EVP. As the largest Indian-American-owned bank in the U.S., the bank focuses on lending within the hospitality industry.
