How Triumph Spells Success

Transparency Is Key

Communicate the truth consistently, directly and professionally. Open communication is the foundation of strong relationships.

Respect Others

Put the needs of others and the needs of the team before promoting your own agenda. Treat others as you want to be treated.

Invest for the Future

Do not allow the immediate to crowd out the important. Success that endures is built upon a long-term perspective.

Unique Is Good

Beware of following the crowd. Being unique can be difficult, but if it were easy, everyone would do it.

Mission over Money

Make everything you are involved with better. This includes doing good works in the areas of the greatest need – in your community and around the world.

People Make the
Difference

In any situation, the most important criteria for our success are the quality of our people and the quality of their thinking.

Humility Creates Servant Leaders

Model humility in all that you do. Humility is not passivity, as it requires the courage to prefer the needs of others over your own.

As a member of the Triumph Bancorp, Inc. group, we share Triumph’s vision to be the most valuable company in our industry. To be valuable is to make a lasting and positive impact on all we work with.
