IBC employees are encouraged to actively participate in civic and charitable organizations supporting the arts, education, neighborhood revitalization, economic development, medical research and other philanthropic endeavors. In 2014, IBC donated close to $2 million to worthwhile nonprofits throughout their market area.
IBC was awarded the Cornerstone Award in 2012 by the Texas Bankers Foundation for its commitment to creating the Tejano Monument on the south lawn of the Texas capitol. The foundation presented the bank its Leaders in Financial Education (LIFE) award in 2010 in recognition of IBC Bank’s “Money Buzz” initiative, a financial literacy program designed to teach students the importance of saving.
The success of IBC and its record of 48 consecutive years of growth and profitability are attributable to Chairman of the Board and CEO Dennis E. Nixon and the leadership team surrounding him.
Nixon’s personal philanthropic service has been recognized on the national and international levels. He was named Mr. South Texas 2010 by Laredo’s Washington’s Birthday Celebration Association. In 2011, he was the first recipient of the Mercy McAuley Award for his extraordinary support of Mercy Ministries and his generosity throughout the community.
