WACO — Fidelity Bank of Texas announced the addition of Aaron Slye as Vice President – Loan Officer in the bank’s commercial lending department in Waco, Texas. Slye will be responsible for building business relationships and increasing the bank’s commercial loan portfolio throughout McLennan County.
Slye has more than 15 years of experience as a banker in Central Texas. He earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration in economics from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, and a master’s in business administration with a concentration in business analytics from Abilene Christian University.
“Aaron’s experience in lending and management will make him a valuable asset to our organization,” said Harry Geib, president of Fidelity Bank of Texas. “He’s intelligent, easy to relate to, and he’s from Central Texas.”
Slye was born and raised in nearby Rogers, Texas, which is also the home of Fidelity Bank’s owners, the Strasburger family.
“Growing up in Rogers, I knew of the Strasburgers and their professional successes,” said Slye. “I was also attracted to Fidelity because of the staff, the hometown feel of the bank, and the opportunity to work for the Strasburgers.”
Geib said commercial lender Craig Cook moved from Fidelity’s Waco location to the Robinson branch to assist with the growth of both markets.
