THE SETTING: The Bank of San Antonio recently hosted an event with Merlin1, one of San Antonio’s premier private jet charter companies, to introduce private banking clients to alternative transportation options that exist for both business and personal travel. Now a member of Texas Partners Bank, The Bank of San Antonio offers private banking clients access to VIP event series that connect them to resources to support lifestyle goals. 

THE STYLE: Texas Partners Bank CEO Brent Given and Merlin1 Founder Jim Foody both addressed their guests, celebrating the joyous occasion of convening in person for the first time since the pandemic, thanks to vaccines and the socially distanced setting of a partially open-air hangar. Guests viewed Citation III and Learjet 35 jet models and reunited to the sounds of Nina and the Texas Gypsies as they sampled bites and sipped beverages catered by Page Barteau. 

THE PURPOSE: After an expansive 2020 merger, The Bank of San Antonio is now a member of Texas Partners Bank, and part of a greater network of Central Texas banks that includes The Bank of Austin and Texas Hill Country Bank. This recent growth has increased the bank’s commercial lending capacity to enable the fastest financing for big plans and has provided the integrated resources for business growth. Eager to help Central Texas businesses continue to grow and thrive, Texas Partners Bank is now a one-stop-shop to customize comprehensive financial and insurance solutions for Central Texas businesses.
