“I am thrilled to work again with David and to be part of the amazing team at Argent Trust who embody the company’s philosophy of ‘humble confidence,’” said Allen. “I was raised in Austin and my entire professional career has been here. I’m eager to serve our clients and to help grow Argent’s presence in the Austin market.”
