Stocks in this article: ZION

DALLAS, Jan. 23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Amegy Bank recently announced that Kirk Wiginton, president of its Dallas region, has also been named chief executive officer. Wiginton assumes the position of chief executive officer from Matt Hildreth, who resigned from the bank after serving more than seven years as CEO of Amegy's Dallas bank.


"Kirk's extensive experience in serving as a financial resource for customers and prospects, lending, building a work environment that is attractive to the best bankers, and community involvement positions him to be a terrific leader for our bank as it continues serving the greater Dallas area," said Amegy Bank Chief Executive Officer Scott McLean. "With nine branches and loan commitments approaching $2 billion, we are excited for Kirk to continue building on the hard work that our strong Dallas leadership team has already accomplished in the market."

With more than 30 years of experience in banking, Wiginton began his career at Allied Bank of Texas in Houston as a loan officer after attending the University of Texas at Austin, where he earned a Bachelor of Business Administration in finance and real estate. After holding several leadership positions at community banks throughout Texas, he joined Amegy Bank in 1997 as a vice president and commercial lender. Wiginton rose through the ranks of the Houston bank, holding key leadership positions and partnering with other executives in guiding regional commercial lending as well as Amegy's community banking partnership, which together make up approximately $3 billion in loans and $7.5 billion in deposits. In August of 2013, Wiginton joined the Amegy Dallas leadership team as president.

"Matt has provided solid leadership in growing Amegy's presence in Dallas by building a talented team, a strong network within the Dallas community, and a loyal customer base. The milestones Amegy has reached in Dallas are truly significant, and we appreciate Matt's contributions to helping us realize these accomplishments," Wiginton said. "Amegy has a great group of bankers and we collectively look forward to reaching many more milestones in the coming years."
