Welcome, Texas Citizens Bank!


On March 1, 2022, Texas Citizens Bank (TCB) successfully merged with b1BANK. With the completion of the acquisition, b1BANK has approximately $5.3 billion in assets and operates Banking Centers and Loan Production Offices in markets across Louisiana and the Dallas—and now Houston—area, providing commercial and personal banking products and services. b1BANK also offers wealth management services through its subsidiary, Smith Shellnut Wilson, LLC (SSW), a registered investment advisor located in Ridgeland, Mississippi. 

Since the merger announcement on October 21, 2021, our combined teams have been diligently working behind the scenes to ensure that the transition of your account(s) to our integrated system will be as seamless as possible. These efforts will result in the transition of your TCB account to a b1BANK account on Monday, July 25, 2022. 

We know you will likely have many questions about how the merger will affect you as we move forward with converting your account(s) to b1BANK. As we approach the system conversion date, we will send you helpful materials, including a Welcome Guide with information on the system conversion process and important dates, details about our products and services, and other materials about b1BANK. The TCB website will also be updated throughout the process. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please call 713.948.5700. 

Thank you for the opportunity to continue to serve you, and welcome to b1BANK!
