 IBC BANK-HOUSTON EMPLOYEE SUPPORTS HOMELESS VETERANS WITH FREE FINANCIAL LITERACY COURSE AS PART OF OPERATION CAREER EMPOWERMENT 

     (OCT. 25, 2018) HOUSTON – In October, IBC Bank-Houston Assistant Vice President and United States Navy Veteran, Victor Cordova, taught 40 Houston veterans the importance of maintaining good credit and making sound financial decisions as part of Career Gear Greater Houston’s Operation Career Empowerment. Career Gear Greater Houston aims to help homeless veterans in the community overcome economic disadvantages by providing the tools and resources necessary to network and gain employment.

      “Our long-term commitment to financial literacy education is an imperative part of IBC’s ‘We Do More’ philosophy,” said IBC Bank-Houston’s Chairman & CEO, Jay Rogers. “Our employees use their professional expertise and resources to provide Houstonians basic financial advice, like how to safely access their credit report and manage their credit, which are often overwhelming challenges.”

     Operation Career Empowerment was created by Career Gear Greater Houston to address the professional obstacles that veterans face when they enter the workforce, including resume development and job readiness.

     “We want to teach skills that will allow our veterans to successfully enter the workforce and lay the foundation for a self-sufficient future” said Jamay Fishback, Executive Director of Career Gear Greater Houston and 2018 Houston Stand Down Chairman. “IBC Bank is serving the men and women who served us, and providing a chance at a better tomorrow.”

 

     Career Gear Greater Houston relies on the experience and volunteerism of Houston veterans to teach veterans in the program important professional principles. Cordova served in the United States Navy for 6 years. He has been with IBC Bank-Houston for 15 years, and also works as the Training Department Manager.

     “As a veteran I am elated to have presented this Financial Literacy module to other local Texas veterans who proudly served our country,” said Cordova. “I am very proud and fortunate that IBC supports giving back to the community and am hopeful that this will become an ongoing initiative.”

     IBC Bank employees have provided free financial literacy education classes to the community for more than 10 years. The lessons cover a range of financial concepts, and vary by group, but aid individuals and families in creating a foundation for smart financial principles.
