Strong Job Fits Results In 75% Reduction In Turnover

Security State Bank (SSB) is one of the oldest banking institutions in West Texas. Its history began in 1928 in the city of McCamey, Texas, when a small group of investors came together to help the local businesses deal with the challenges they were faced during the Great Depression. SSB’s exclusive commitment to McCamey continued for 60 years until it became clear that expansion was not only important to the bank, but would also be beneficial to surrounding communities. So in 1989 they opened their first branch in Crane, Texas. That was followed by a second branch in 1991 and another five over the next 15 years, with most of the growth concentrated in the last 5 years of that period
