Richardson Green Banker Invests in Communities Locally and Abroad


Garth Edwards recently joined a mission team of 23 that traveled to Walvis Bay, Namibia in Africa. During their two-week trip, Garth mentored children in schools, volunteered at a special needs home, cared for abused children and visited a desert school. Garth used the trip to help instill the joy of serving with his family—his two oldest daughters joined him.

"Having my daughters there to share in the experience was unforgettable. You can come home and show pictures to everyone and tell stories of what happened and how you helped. But you need to realize that giving comes back—we were touched as a family and that will germinate their lives forever,” notes Garth.

Garth is also active in his local community. He is a REACH mentor for McKinney ISD, where he mentors a young man to stay on track with school and behavior. The REACH program focuses on instilling self-esteem and motivation in individuals while reinforcing the importance of education. He is also a board member of Junior Achievement, where he actively participates in their classroom programs.

Senior Vice President and Private Banking Manager Garth Edwards recently joined Green Bank as a commercial banker. With the acquisition of Opportunity Bank, Garth had the opportunity to jump back into private banking.

“18 years ago, I entered banking working with clients and growing businesses. I’ve built teams of client-focused bankers and have helped when other banks had to quit. I’ve got a great team in Dallas and Green Bank has a track record of getting the job done. It’s a great chance to showcase the difference a strong bank can make.”

Garth is married with six children – Mackenna (16), Kerregan (15), Grady (13), Lainey (12), Landry (9) and Brody (6). His youngest three are a sibling group that he and his wife recently adopted.
