Broadway Bank Private Banking Expands Expertise and Team in the Austin Area

Austin, Texas – Broadway Bank expands Private Banking services in the Austin market with two new bankers, adding more local expertise to a growing team of professionals providing concierge financial services to individuals, businesses, entrepreneurs and corporate clients.

Chris Johnston and David Springer bring more than 38 years of combined experience to Broadway’s Private Banking team serving customers in Austin and Round Rock, helping them reach their business and personal financial goals. As Private Bankers, Johnston and Springer provide streamlined account management, financial planning, and specialized services including access to commercial lending, mortgages, customized credit, investment management and trust and estate services.

 “Chris and David join an incredible team dedicated to getting to know our customers personally and tailoring precise financial strategies to ensure their success,” said Blake Absher, Austin Market President. “At Broadway, we pride ourselves in creating customized solutions, providing individual attention, building a relationship with our customers, and meeting them where they are, whether that’s in-person or digitally. It’s our approach to modern banking that’s locally sourced and personally delivered.”

As one of the region’s largest and strongest independent banks, Broadway Bank is known for best-in-class service and community impact. Broadway Bank entered the Austin market in 2012 and recently promoted Blake Absher to Austin Market President along with other internal leadership promotions in preparation for new market entries in Texas. Broadway expects to hire more banking and financial experts as part of its plan for strategic expansion in Texas and record-setting growth in Central Texas. Visit for job opportunities.
