Texas Capital Bancshares, the parent company of Texas Capital Bank and Texas Capital Securities, made new leadership appointments to enhance its corporate and investment bank offerings for the energy sector, hiring Marc Graham as head of energy and a team of energy investment banking veterans. In addition, the company is adding managing directors Michael Bodino, Christian Gibson and Randall Byrne to its energy investment banking team.

As head of energy, Graham will be responsible for the growth of the energy vertical and delivering talent and full-service solutions to Texas Capital clients on a global basis. Graham has more than 20 years of experience and is based in Houston.

Bodino, Gibson and Byrne have more than 75 years of combined investment banking experience covering approximately 500 transactions across a range of capital markets and advisory services transactions, including acquisitions and divestitures.

The energy investment banking team will collaborate with Texas Capital’s existing energy corporate banking and mergers and acquisitions and leveraged finance businesses. In all, Texas Capital now serves the energy sector with more than 25 dedicated professionals, including eight with technical backgrounds.

“Our dedication to the energy sector reflects our strategic commitment to serving the leading clients in Texas and the industries that are important to the Texas economy. We are excited to have Marc, Michael, Chris, Randy and team on board,” Daniel Hoverman, head of corporate and investment banking at Texas Capital, said. “With our expanded coverage team, together with additional industry experts we expect to join in the fourth quarter, Texas Capital’s energy corporate and investment banking services now offer a full range of banking capabilities. Unlike our global full-service competitors, we make credit, underwriting and advisory decisions here in Texas. This ensures that our clients will never outgrow our services or our dedication to being their first call among financial services firms.”

Under the leadership of Rob C. Holmes, president and CEO, Texas Capital set out to rebuild and expand the breadth and quality of its product platform in September 2021 and has since launched its investment bank and built teams in mergers and acquisitions, leveraged finance, high-yield debt, equity finance, capital markets, securitization, mortgage sales and trading, corporate sales and trading, and interest rate and foreign exchange hedging.

“Energy sector participants are seeking a financial services partner with a long-term commitment to the industry as well as the experience necessary to help them achieve their strategic objectives,” Graham said. “The expansion of Texas Capital’s energy platform is representative of the firm’s desire to be the premier, Texas-based full-service provider of financial solutions. We have built a team with deep industry knowledge, experience and relationships to deliver innovative financing and strategic solutions to an industry that requires a specialized approach.”
