Availability

Headquartered in Houston, Green Bank’s primary market area includes the Austin, Dallas, and Houston metropolitan area, but through the acquisition of SharePlus Bank, has expanded into the Louisville, Kentucky market.

While Green Bank’s GO! Accounts can be opened online, opening the 29-month CD Special requires a visit to any of the 23 Texas branches located in Addison, Austin, Cleveland, Dallas (3), Friendswood, Honey Grove, Houston (9), Kingwood, Mesquite, Plano (2), Richardson, and Shenandoah. The Louisville branch is housed in the YUM! Brands Headquarters.

Bank Overview

Green Bank (FDIC Certificate # 35007) has an overall health grade of "B+" at DepositAccounts.com, with a Texas ratio of 23.37% (average) based on March 31, 2016 data. In the past year, Green Bank has increased its total deposits by $1.13 billion, an excellent annual growth rate of 58.31%. Please refer to our financial overview of Green Bank for more details.

Privately-held Green Bank’s roots can be traced back to Houston’s Redstone Bank, which the Green Bancorp Inc. acquired in 2006. The name was changed to Green Bank in 2007, as the Bank began its expansion. From 2010 to 2015, Green Bank acquired five Texas banks, including the Dallas-based SharePlus Bank. Green Bank is currently the 14th largest bank in Texas, with assets in excess of $3.8 billion.

According to a BizJournals May 2014 article,

SharePlus, founded in 1958, had been the corporate credit union for Frito-Lay, PepsiCo Inc.
(NYSE: PEP) and Yum! Brands Inc. (NYSE: YUM) before converting to a mutual federal savings bank
in 2004, SharePlus President and CEO Jeff Weaver told HBJ. The bank went public in 2010 and then converted to a state-chartered commercial bank in December 2013. Because it had been a corporate credit union, SharePlus has a unique bank-at-work concept that was also attractive to Green Bank.
