On Thursday, January 7, First Liberty Bank board members, executives, and guests attended a groundbreaking ceremony in Mont Belvieu for the bank’s seventh branch location. Also in attendance were three team members poised to service the new location: Bonnie Garcia, Brennon Marsh, and Troy Bernhardt.
“We feel the location at the intersection of FM 565 and 3180 is a prime spot to be as the Mont Belvieu area is expected to continue its growth,” stated Charles McGuire, FLB’s Chairman.
“We’re very excited to be here. First Liberty is committed to being a true community bank. This will not just be a branch location,” said Kelly D. Stretcher, FLB’s President & CEO.

Our board of directors is committed to that: to invest in this area and this community and make it grow and prosper.”
