BMO Harris Bank has launched a new commercial banking office in Dallas, providing Texas customers with resources for diversified industries, asset-based lending and commercial real estate.
"The strong demographic and economic indicators, combined with our recent BMO transportation finance acquisition, made this a natural next step in the growth of our commercial business," Ray Whitacre, head of diversified industries, said. "We'll be primarily focused on the Dallas-Fort Worth area at first; however, as we grow our operations, the office will be our beachhead for serving customers throughout Texas and the surrounding area."
Dan Marszalek, head of corporate finance for BMO Harris Bank, said they have a long history in Texas.
"Our BMO office in Houston has been serving the energy sector for more than 50 years, and we've had Texas-based commercial customers for generations," he said. "We're very pleased that we can now offer our customers, and prospective customers, a wide array of industry expertise provided by local BMO bankers based in the market."
The new office will be run by Brian Enzler, market executive for Dallas diversified industries, He is a native of Dallas and graduate of the University of Texas at Dallas who has spent his career focusing on commercial banking in Texas.
