About the Company
At PlainsCapital, we've always had a trailblazing spirit. PlainsCapital was founded in 1988 by Alan White and a group of investors who raised the capital to acquire Plains National Bank, a Lubbock financial institution with one branch and $198.8 million in assets. Alan, who retired from his post as Chairman of PlainsCapital Bank in 2019, partnered with a team of young bankers who dreamed of bringing relationship banking to Lubbock, and they began to grow the bank one relationship at a time.
Today, PlainsCapital Bank is one of the largest banks in Texas based on deposit market share. Under the leadership of President and Chief Executive Officer Jerry Schaffner, we have a statewide presence with more than 60 locations in all major Texas markets. We are a strong and stable financial institution and a trusted community partner. We take pride in helping our customers blaze trails of their own, whether launching or expanding a business, raising a family, or moving into retirement.
