Whitley Penn Named Tier 3 Five*Star Award Recipient by the Independent Bankers Association of Texas

Austin, TX (June 28, 2024)

Whitley Penn has been named the Tier 3 Five*Star Award Recipient from the Independent Bankers Association of Texas (IBAT).

Since 2002, IBAT has honored its associate members with the IBAT Five*Star Award, recognizing those companies that routinely provide not just excellent service, but innovative solutions that help community banks grow faster, enhance profits and gain efficiency. To qualify for the IBAT Five*Star Award, an associate member company must earn enough engagement points by being involved in IBAT events throughout the prior year. The Five*Star award is presented to three companies each year, based on community banker votes and number of employees. Award recipients are celebrated during the annual Connecting Leaders Conference.

“We believe this award is a reflection of our team’s involvement, passion and commitment to community banks, including the 80+ community banks that we directly serve as clients,” stated Brett Murphy, Whitley Penn Audit Partner and IBAT Leadership Division Board of Directors Member. “We realize the impact our community banks have on our local communities and economies and are committed to supporting and partnering with them and IBAT for their continued success and for the greater good of our local communities.”
