What Our Clients Have To Say

BB&T’s reputation as a reliable and responsive lender already is attracting fans and business in the Texas oilfields. In February 2011, after establishing a presence in Texas with the Colonial acquisition, BB&T formed an energy-lending team based in Houston to meet the needs of the booming and capital-intensive oil and gas sector. “People in this business value long-term relationships from banks they can count on to provide the capital they need to meet their capital expenditure objectives,” says Jeff Forbis, Energy Group manager of BB&T Capital Markets. Jeff, who like his teammates joined BB&T after years of experience in the energy industry, promptly approached Tim Dunn, CEO of CrownRock LP in Midland, Texas, offering BB&T participation in a lending group with other banks. “I didn’t know BB&T until Jeff showed up on my doorstep,” says Tim, “but I’ve known and trusted Jeff for more than 20 years. The more he told me about BB&T, the more I liked it.” In addition to the Energy Group, BB&T offers extensive energy insurance capabilities in Houston through its insurance subsidiary, McGriff, Seibels & Williams Inc.
