Berend earns promotion at Glen Rose’s InterBank
GLEN ROSE — In just eight short years, Tryce Berend’s career at InterBank in Glen Rose has gone full circle.
Since joining the bank as an intern in August 2013 during his final year at Tarleton State in Stephenville, Berend went from an intern to vice president of lending, and in June, he was named Senior Vice President/Community Bank President - Glen Rose.
“I’m very excited in this next step of my career. I’m looking forward to using this promotion to continue to help the community of Glen Rose. Since first starting my internship with Interbank in 2013, this is something I’ve been working towards,” he said.
“I’ve been able to grow with the town, and I see further personal and marketable growth for the future and I can offer stability with my current customers and use the knowledge I have learned about Glen Rose these past eight years with future customers.”
During his eight-month internship with InterBank nearly a decade ago, he did everything from working as a teller as well as a personal banker; credit administrator; commercial real estate lending, and more, and it all proved beneficial as he worked his way up the corporate ladder.
“My daily responsibilities are not changing much, but it does give me a higher platform within InterBank,” he said. “I’ll continue to do what I have been doing as the Glen Rose InterBank lender. Recently, I’ve hired additional lending support so I can help further my reach and knowledge within the community.”
Berend said the market has continued to grow with all the people that have moved to Glen Rose in the last few years, and he said he has the staff in place to take care of the needs of their existing and new clients.
“We have an excellent group here at the Glen Rose branch,” he said. “Polly, Jennifer, Tammi, Rosie, Diana, Lauren, Maria and Brenda — every single one of them works hard to make us a great place to bank.”
Berend graduated from Windhorst High School in 2010, and he earned his bachelor’s degree in agriculture economics with an emphasis in agri-business management and a minor in business at Tarleton State. His wife, Katie McAnally Berend, is a 2010 graduate of Glen Rose High School.
