“With over 760 branches in 17 states today, we remain rooted in Montgomery County,” said Dreibelbis. “We still value operating our bank like a family-owned business, especially as we continue to expand our commercial banking and retail branch presences beyond the state. Woodforest has a lot of history, and we look forward to making more history in the future, particularly as we embark upon the opening of our newly-constructed building in downtown Conroe.”
