February 1,2021

Mark Nurdin, CEO, for Bank of Texas, Fort Worth and J.B. Huck, private wealth executive, announce the appointment of Deirdre Cherry as Private Wealth team lead for the Fort Worth market. Cherry will oversee the personnel and client relationships in the Fort Worth market.

“I’m excited to join the Private Wealth team at Bank of Texas,” said Cherry. “My goal is to be a valued resource for our clients -- offering solutions that ensure their assets are working for them today and into the future. The bank’s approach of providing multiple services like investment management, credit and estate planning helps clients to see a holistic picture of their financial relationship.”

As team lead, Cherry is responsible for the Private Wealth team, overseeing sales and service processes, and personally working with some of the largest customer relationships in the division. As a banking executive for over 20 years, Cherry joins the Fort Worth Private Wealth team from her previous position as Chief Credit Officer of Gateway First Bank based in Dallas, Texas. Prior to Gateway, she served in wealth positions at Bank of the West, San Francisco; Bank of America, New York and San Francisco; Deutsche Bank, San Francisco; and JP Morgan Chase & Co., New York and San Francisco. Deirdre Cherry earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Economics from the University of Santa Clara, California, along with Masters of Business Administration in Finance from Pace University in New York. She enjoys volunteering for food banks and animal rescues and looks forward to doing more in the community throughout Tarrant and surrounding counties.

Due to the current COVID pandemic, Bank of Texas overall had to temporarily adjust some interactions from in person meetings by increasing utilization of virtual interactions and digital platforms. The team visits frequently with clientele over the phone and through online meetings, in addition to making special arrangements for visits in safe, social distancing locations. Even through the alterations, the team continues to provide excellent service, meeting clients’ changing needs.

Cherry added, “The combination of seasoned management and collaboration across lines of business will allow us continued growth. Our client-centered relationship approach has been a standout during the economic and social distress of 2020, and I look forward to continuing and enhancing that approach going forward.”
