The Dunwoody Perimeter Chamber always loves the opportunity to support and recognize our Chamber members. Please join us as we celebrate Wallis Bank with a ribbon cutting on Thursday, June 20, 2019, at 11 a.m.
Wallis Bank began operations in a wooden frame building where it remained until 1912, before a two-story brick building was erected. The Board of Directors leased portions of the second floor to the justice of the peace and a Masonic lodge. This building served as the bank’s home for the next 46 years until the present building was constructed in 1968, which replaced the old two-story structure. There have been a number of major modifications to enlarge the main office, as the bank has grown and expanded over the years.
On June 14, 1976, the bank became a member of First City Bancshares. In 1989, the bank became a member of Louise Bancshares. During that time, C. J. Overgoner, William R. Jenkins, and Michael Turner served as presidents of the bank. After new ownership took over the Bank in the early 1990s, the Bank has expanded by opening branches and offices in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, Fulshear, and Los Angeles. In 2019, the bank officially updated its name from Wallis State Bank to Wallis Bank.
The goal of Wallis Bank is to continue to provide quality financial products and services with an irreplaceable personal touch that has been developed through more than a century of experience.
During this event, attendees will enjoy light bites with water, tea, and sodas. There will also be giveaways (small promotional items).
