When considering movers, shakers and leaders who will transform our community, Daniel Nash instantly comes to mind. Between a career in community banking and free time volunteering in the community, he is someone who is already making waves in The Coastal Bend.
Nash has been in the community banking industry for nearly a decade, and is currently serving as Vice President – Commercial Lending at Charter Bank. For Nash, it’s more than a career; it’s a vocation to help.
“I love being able to help people make their aspirations and dreams come true,” said Nash. “I want to leverage my knowledge of finance to help people grow their organizations.”
His passion for the betterment of the community extends before and after the average working day. Community activity is a permanent fixture of Nash’s life: He has been a Bucarader since 2018, and joined the Corpus Christi Evening Rotary Club in 2020 and the Buc Commission in 2022. He’s been a board member with The Corpus Christi Crime Stoppers since 2016, where he is currently serving as vice chair. He is the past president and a member of The Ronald McDonald House board, which he joined more than five years ago. He was also part of Leadership Corpus Christi Class 46 — which he describes as “legendary.”
He encourages everyone to consider getting involved in the community. “For anyone who is interested in giving back, don’t be afraid to jump. There will be an organization that supports what you are passionate about.”
With an impressive present and a very promising future, Nash could take his talents anywhere, and has had many opportunities. “I’ve had job offers throughout Texas. But I choose to live in Corpus Christi. I love this community; it’s stronger than any other community I’ve been part of, ” said Nash.
Between his work and volunteerism, Nash has witnessed the extraordinary philanthropic efforts and endeavors that are poured into our region. “When it comes to nonprofits, the giving back in this community is more than I’ve ever seen,” said Nash. It’s one of the many reasons he loves the Coastal Bend and plans to stay here. “You couldn’t find a better community than Corpus Christi, with our good people, the great business atmosphere and a devotion to giving back.”
When considering the future, Nash is certain about a few things. “I will still be in banking. I want to grow within my current organization. And I plan to live my life in Corpus and retire here.”
