A Unique Philosophy: Faith, Family and Falcon

Falcon attributes its success largely to being a family-owned business—and, thus, a business that values and cultivates a familial atmosphere in its staff and customers. Our philosophy is simple: Faith, Family and Falcon. And it began with one man.

The late Hugo Gutierrez, Sr., a trusted, longtime Laredo businessman, headed his family’s far-sighted investment in 1995, when they purchased a majority interest in then Falcon National Bank. Mr. Gutierrez Sr. contributed his invaluable business experience to his new role as Chairman of the bank’s Board of Directors, with his sons, Hugo Jr. and Adolfo, joining him on the board. Adolfo also became the bank’s President and CEO, a position he held for nearly a dozen years. In that time, Mr. Gutierrez Sr.’s business savvy and devotion to family created a business model that still guides Falcon throughout its growth.

Today, Gilbert Narvaez, Jr., an integral part of Falcon since 1990, serves as President and COO, and after decades of treasured business advice from his father, Adolfo serves as Falcon’s Chairman of the Board and CEO. Mr. Narvaez, Jr., John J. Hill, Hugo A. Gutierrez, Jr., Ray A. Gonzales, Eduardo Garza-Robles, and Pablo Villanueva also add their banking and business expertise to Falcon’s Board of Directors.
