CrossFirst Bank said Friday it has completed its acquisition of Tulsa National Bank, which brings the Leawood bank to $800 million in assets.
The deal, bank officials said, also completes a four-market strategy to operate banks in Kansas City, Wichita, Oklahoma City and Tulsa.
CrossFirst did not disclose terms of the acquisition.
In conjunction with the closing, CrossFirst said it has hired Chris Jones as its Tulsa president. Jones was most recently CEO for Tulsa-based Grand Bank.
CrossFirst was founded in 2007 by three bankers, including former Intrust Bank president Ron Baldwin, who is its chairman.
