Dallas Business Journal Recognized Minge for His Leadership Excellence and Community Engagement
ARLINGTON, Texas – June 22, 2023 – Jim Minge, CEO of Texas Trust Credit Union, has been named a 2023 Most Admired CEO by the Dallas Business Journal.
This year’s honorees are North Texas business leaders recognized for the exemplary stewardship of their companies, for cultivating an inclusive and collaborative work environment, and having positively contributed to the strength and stability of the local community.
Of the 29 leaders selected, Minge is the sole representative from the credit union industry to earn this year’s award. He and the 28 other honorees, representing a variety of industries – from nonprofits to finance, real estate to education, and health care to hospitality – were honored during a special event June 15. The honorees are also being featured in a special publication in the Dallas Business Journal.
“My name might be on the award, but this honor is a reflection of the dedication and work of every Texas Trust employee,” said Jim Minge. “It is a privilege to work with such an amazing group of people who are committed to building brighter financial futures for every one of our members.”
Minge joined Texas Trust in 2011. Under his decade of leadership the credit union has tripled in size from $680 million in assets and 58,000 members to more than $2 billion in assets and 136,000 members. In 2022, despite the challenging economy, Texas Trust achieved a 14 percent increase in assets over the previous year, added nearly 4,000 members (up 3 percent), and grew lending to $1.55 billion, a 12 percent increase.
Minge’s compassion for others has been infused into Texas Trust’s culture. Not only is he active on civic and non-profit boards, he has spearheaded various initiatives to encourage employees to do the same, which has increased employee volunteerism to record levels.
He also paved the way to the creation of community partnerships to help fund school projects, granted hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships to high school and college students, and invested in multimillion-dollar sponsorships. Texas Trust has also funded large scale initiatives for the performing arts, college athletics, and financial education, and made substantial monetary donations to organizations such as Mission Arlington, the North Texas Food Bank, American Cancer Society, Toys for Tots, and numerous other causes. The credit union has also donated more than $2 million toward local school programs. Minge also established the Texas Trust Gives Foundation in 2022, pledging $800,000 in support of the Foundation’s mission of helping schools, teachers, students, and families.
“The employees and members of Texas Trust are indebted to Jim Minge for his unwavering commitment,” said Larry Skinner, Board Chairman, Texas Trust Credit Union. “He has challenged and mentored each of us to do more than we ever thought possible. Through his dedication and drive to help us succeed he has made Texas Trust a fun and desirable place to work and bank.”
