Independent Bank has changed its name to Independent Financial.
Independent Bank is changing its name to Independent Financial. The name change comes from a companywide rebrand, that includes a new logo, revealed May 30 at the opening of the McKinney headquarters, located at 7777 Henneman Way. The new name applies to all of Independent Bank’s banking offices and business lines. The company’s Colorado market and other markets will begin the transition to Independent Financial this summer through 2020. According to an Independent Bank press release, Independent Financial preserves the original name while allowing opportunities to grow into new markets and expand its products and services. www.independent-bank.com
