business in our monthly newsletter!

The Laredo Development Foundation recognizes a Member Employer in its monthly e-Newsletter, Border InSight, based on:

  • The company's commitment to the betterment of the community
  • Efforts above and beyond the normal scope of job and performance services required by the company

Texas Community Bank is locally owned and operated, community-oriented institution with its heart and roots embeded along the South Texas-Mexico's border.  TCB is a wholly owned subsidiary of Vision Bancshares, Inc., a one-bank holding company that was founded in 2003 by Laredo banker Douglas G. Macdonald and a group of local investors.  Macdonald was familiar with the Laredo market and believed that an opportunity existed for a community bank that emphasizes personal service.
