MidSouth Bank has added a new location in Magnolia, Texas , to better serve its growing customer base in the northwest part of Houston . The full-service location,
conveniently situated at the corner of FM 1488 and Conroe Huffsmith Road , is MidSouth Bank’s fourth banking center serving the Greater Houston market.
The Magnolia location, the 60th in the bank’s Louisiana-Texas franchise, is headed by Banking Center Manager Amber Newport. Newport , who has been with MidSouth Bank for the past year, was promoted to lead the expansion from the Tyler market, where she was Commercial Loan Assistant. She has 15 years of banking experience.
A Tyler native now living in Conroe , Newport says the facility was added to make banking more convenient for MidSouth Bank’s existing customers and to bring new customers to the bank.
“Magnolia has a very vibrant economy, and we are well-positioned to meet the growing financial needs of the area’s production, manufacturing, transportation, construction and petroleum services industries,” Newport said. “We also want our customers with personal accounts to know they can access our bank from anywhere via our new mobile banking app, goDeposit Mobile . With this app, customers can deposit checks right from their Smartphone.”
Additionally, just about any transaction can be conducted online, Newport said, and customers have access to a worldwide ATM network of more than 50,000 surcharge-free ATMs.
Newport is working alongside Tina McGriff, who has joined MidSouth Bank as Vice President and Commercial Lender for the Magnolia office. A Houston native now living in Crosby , McGriff has almost three decades of banking experience.
“We have created six new positions with this expansion to Magnolia, but that’s just the beginning of what we have in store for this market,” said MidSouth Bank President and CEO Rusty Cloutier. “We will add more jobs in the Greater Houston area as we expand our presence in the Woodlands, as well as in Cypress , and we’re already looking at new opportunities in the market.”
The bank’s Houston facilities are located at 1035 Dairy Ashford St. and 11417 Veterans Memorial Drive ; the address of its Conroe facility is 2101 N. Loop 336 W.
