AUSTIN, June 30, 2017 -

The Texas Bankers Association announces that after 43 years of representing the financial services industry, Eric Sandberg, president and CEO, has notified the Board of Directors of his retirement effective June 30, 2018.


“I am grateful for the many opportunities to spend the vast portion of my professional career representing the financial institutions in Texas,” Sandberg said. “The trust and support given to me by the members of the Texas Bankers Association to lead this outstanding organization is very humbling. I am proud of the successes we have enjoyed. The future of this organization is solid, with an excellent staff and strong volunteer membership leading the way.”


The Texas Bankers Association is the oldest state banking association with the largest number of members in the United States and is well-respected among its peers.


“Eric Sandberg is one of the recognized leaders in the industry and will be deeply missed,” said Chairman Jay Dreibelbis. “TBA thanks Eric for both his service and dedication over the years and for providing us a year’s advance notice, which will assist TBA’s volunteer leadership to make the transition to new leadership seamless.”


TBA has named a search committee, chaired by Jim Goudge of Broadway Bank in San Antonio, and will begin the process of engaging a search firm to interview candidates to find the best qualified person to fill this position. The goal of the committee will be to have the candidate selected prior to the May convention and assuming office on July 1, 2018.
