Keystone Bank, one of the fastest growing banks in Central Texas, is excited to announce the hiring of Ty Byrd as VP, Digital Banking. Byrd will spearhead the development of Keystone’s digital banking services, helping to advance their goal of becoming an industry leader in the digital space.
Byrd brings more than 15 years of experience in banking—including residential home loans, small business lending, treasury sales and branch management—to his new position. However, it was his knack for leading successful digital banking initiatives that made him an outstanding candidate for the Keystone team. He most recently served as Digital Banking Operations Manager for Texas Capital Bank, where he developed their digital products and services.
At Keystone, Byrd will focus on advancing the bank’s comprehensive digital banking solutions, which go hand-in-hand with the exceptional, relationship-based community banking services Keystone is known for. Today’s consumers expect the ability to access services online for all of their needs, and banking is no exception. Robust digital banking capabilities allow Keystone to streamline the entire customer experience online, from beginning to end, supporting greater accessibility and ease of use.
“I was attracted to Keystone Bank’s unique position as a young, fast-growing enterprise, as well as the opportunity to grow a completely end-to-end digital banking model,” says Byrd, who will also expand Keystone’s book of fintech partnerships as he builds out the digital platform.
“We’re thrilled to add Ty to our growing team, which features some of the best talent in Austin—and the industry, period,” adds Jeff Wilkinson, Keystone’s Chairman and CEO.
Byrd will also take the lead on enhancing services for Keystone’s core customer base of entrepreneurs in the Austin community. From processing customer payments and payroll, to paying vendors, Keystone makes it easier for local entrepreneurs to improve their operational efficiency and security so they can focus on growing their businesses.
