Jeff Austin Jr., chairman of the board of Austin Bank, recently announced that Senior Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Keith Chambers has retired.  

Todd Burton, the bank’s deputy chief financial officer, has succeeded him and Sandy Rayburn has been named to serve as controller.

Chambers began his 40-year banking career in 1975 as the chief financial officer with Texarkana National Bank in Texarkana. He joined Austin Bank in September 1997 in the role of the bank’s first chief financial officer and remained in that position throughout his 18 years with the Bank.

“Keith, a friend and valued member of the Austin Bank family, has provided excellent leadership and service to the Bank,” Austin said.  “His commitment to excellence has defined his reputation as a loyal and trusted leader in the banking community.”

Chambers holds a Bachelor of Science and Business Administration degree from the University of Nebraska, is a Disney University 1993 graduate and member of the Texas Society of Certified Public Accounts.
