For Christopher Wallace, every business interaction is a friendship waiting to happen. “I love talking to people and hearing their stories,” he said. “I learn so much about my customers during the loan process that many times we become friends once the loan is done. Customers remember who treated them well and whom they feel is trustworthy and honest. It is my goal that every customer I talk to leaves the conversation thinking ‘Wow, I really like Christopher’.”
The idea of Banking Texas Style, with its focus on personal connections and strong relationships, is what brought Christopher to CBTx in the first place. “My youngest son was a senior in high school and I wanted to be closer to home so I can spend more time with him before he goes off to college,” Christopher said. “I looked at many options and I just felt that CBTx was the best fit. CBTx is dedicated to making sure that the customer is taken care of. I describe it as Old School Banking with New Millennium bankers.”
Christopher grew up in Toledo, Ohio. He attended the University of Colorado, where he studied computer science, then moved to Dallas to live close to friends. He is involved with the Allen Chamber of Commerce and volunteers at Allen High School.
Christopher and his wife, Christian, have three boys, Connor, Nicholas, and Max, and two dogs, Paisley and Lucy. He enjoys spending time with his family and traveling.
