Parker has been in the industry for 11 years, with a background in the commercial line of business.

"Ryan has been leading our commercial banking team in San Antonio since the beginning of the year, and has shown time and again that he's up for the challenge of moving the bank forward towards a bright future," said BBVA Compass Texas Regional Executive Jeff Dudderar.
