Message from the President
Henry Ford once said, “There is joy in work. There is no happiness except in the realization that we have accomplished something.” As my father, Jimmy Rasmussen, settles into retirement after serving over 30 years as President and CEO of HomeTown Bank, it is hard to look towards the future without acknowledging his brilliant career as a community banker in the Great State of Texas. Throughout his career and certainly throughout my lifetime, Jimmy has worn many hats. He’s been a coach, a sports fan, an outdoorsman, a boss, a civic leader, a community leader, and an industry leader. He has served as the Chairman of the Independent Bankers Association of Texas, a Class C Director on the Dallas Federal Reserve Board, and he is enshrined in the Texas Community Bankers Hall of Fame. He has reached the pinnacle of his profession with integrity and has genuinely enjoyed every minute of it. Although the hats are plentiful, my two favorites are “Dad” and “Poppy”. He is my hero, and he should rest easy and welcome retirement with the joy of accomplishment.
Looking towards 2023, I am both honored and humbled to serve as President and CEO of HomeTown Bank. This institution has been my “home” for almost 23 years and the people that work here are my “family”. Our professional team is composed of responsive and local people who focus on customer relationships that will last for generations to come. We are committed to our customers and we are committed to the communities we serve. Our people make the difference.
If you’re an existing customer, THANK YOU. You have joined a growing number of people who enjoy the difference of community banking at HomeTown. We appreciate your business, welcome you with a smile and treat you as a friend. If you’re not currently banking with us, well, you should be. We would love your consideration and welcome the opportunity. Please feel free to contact us or come by one of our branches and we will be happy to answer any questions that you may have!
