Although our name may be new to the Lone Star State, BB&T has roots that date back to 1872. We are one of the oldest and strongest banks in the U.S., with assets totaling more than $182 billion. Our first introduction to Texas was through the acquisition of Colonial Bank in 2009. Since that time, we have doubled in size adding financial centers in Austin, Dallas, Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio; plans to add several new financial centers in 2013 represent an investment of $40 million. That’s a 70% growth in our deposit portfolio since 2009.
At BB&T, our mission is to help clients achieve economic success and financial security. You are more than a number to us. Our goal is to establish a banking relationship, a partnership, between you and our local associates. After all, when neighbors help neighbors, a stronger community is created. And although we believe change is necessary for success, our values haven’t changed in more than 140 years. We value our clients. We invite you to become one of them.
BB&T was named among the Top 20 of the World's Strongest Banks by Bloomberg Markets magazine in May 2012.
BB&T was named a 2012 Greenwich Excellence Award Winner by Greenwich Associates, a leading financial services research firm. BB&T was the winner of 22 Excellence Awards in Middle Market and Small Business Banking.
