PlainsCapital Chairman Named Among Most Influential Business Leaders in North Texas
DALLAS, TX (April 6, 2018) — PlainsCapital Bank Chairman Alan B. White was among 12 banking leaders named to D CEO magazine’s Dallas 500, celebrating the 500 most influential business leaders and community influencers in North Texas.
Home to some of the largest companies in the country, the Dallas-Fort Worth area is a magnet for corporate headquarters and major company operations. Nearly half (22) of the 50 Texas-based public companies listed on last year’s Fortune 500 call Dallas-Fort Worth home. The executive talent that resides in the region reads as a who’s who in business. Dallas 500 provides an engaging and personal look at the people who have made Dallas-Fort Worth such a powerful economic force.
White, a West Texas native, founded PlainsCapital Corporation in 1987 and led the company’s acquisitions of PlainsCapital Bank in 1988, PrimeLending in 1999, and FirstSouthwest (now HilltopSecurities) in 2008. Following Hilltop Holdings’ 2012 acquisition of PlainsCapital Corporation, White was named co-CEO and vice chairman of Hilltop, a diversified financial services holding company with $13.4 billion in assets.* Hilltop Holdings provides banking and financial services through its four primary subsidiaries: PlainsCaital Bank, PrimeLending, HilltopSecurities, and National Lloyds Corporation.
The Dallas 500 is a yearlong research initiative by the editors of D CEO, named the country’s best regional business magazine for the last five years by the national Alliance for Area Business Publishers. In developing the annual business ranking, the editors identified the region’s most powerful top executives across 61 industries.
White’s track record championing a relationship-based corporate culture was highlighted for the role it has played in contributing to the success of Hilltop Holding’s operating subsidiaries.
