Arvest Bank Names Mike Willard President / CEO of North Central Arkansas Region

Friday, June 29 at 10:30 AM
Category: Arvest News


Arvest Bank has promoted Mike Willard to president and CEO of the bank’s North Central Arkansas and West Plains, Missouri region, effective July 1.

Willard currently is the president and CEO of Arvest Bank’s Prairie Grove market in Northwest Arkansas. During his 15-year career with Arvest Bank, Willard also served as consumer loan officer, commercial loan officer and community bank president in Mountain Home, Ark. from 2010-2013.

He currently is a member of the Arkansas Economics Advisory Board and has served on the board of directors for the Baxter Regional Medical Center Foundation, Mountain Home Chamber of Commerce, Mountain Home Education Foundation, Mountain Home Rotary Club and Performing Arts Council for Arkansas State University Mountain Home, in addition to leadership roles with other organizations.

“Mike’s previous work and compassion for the North Central Arkansas community make his return to this area a perfect fit,” said Don Walker, regional executive for Arvest Bank. “He was very invested in the surrounding communities and in serving our customers and local businesses, so I’m sure he’s looking forward to this opportunity.”

Willard earned a bachelor’s degree in business management from Southern Nazarene University in Bethany, Okla. He is a graduate of the Louisiana State University School of Banking.

Willard succeeds Tom Dame who recently accepted an executive leadership position in Arvest’s Springfield, Mo. market.

“Tom has been an exceptional leader in this market for many years and our customers and associates have benefitted from his experience and leadership,” said Walker. “We are fortunate to be able to utilize Tom’s experience in our Springfield market and name a successor who also had expertise in North Central Arkansas. We thank Tom for his great work here and wish him continued success in our sister territory.”

Dame’s history with Arvest began in 2000 when he joined the bank at Yellville. He has served as president and CEO of the North Central Arkansas market since 2014.

“Biggest Savers” in Flippin and Yellville-Summit Schools Recognized by Arvest

Thursday, June 07 at 02:00 PM
Category: Arvest Community News

Fifth grade students in Flippin and Yellville-Summit Schools recently learned who among them earned the title of the ‘biggest saver.’ The designation comes after a school year of saving and budgeting as part of Arvest Bank’s annual Dollars and Sense program that teaches students best financial practices.


Arvest Bank recognized Yellville-Summit 5th grader Caleb Hartle for saving $450 during the 2017-2018 school year. Classmate Mikayla White saved the second-largest amount with $178.62. The entire 5th grade class at Yellville-Summit saved a total of $628.62.

The biggest saver among students in Flippin was Adrianne Benedict with $470. Jace Copeland was second, saving $208 and Caden Dawson was the third highest saver, putting back $150. The 5th grade class at Flippin saved a collective total of $1,517.19 by the end of the school year.

Arvest Bank’s Dollars and Sense program teaches students of all ages the importance of saving and budgeting, as well as general information on banks, money, bartering and other relevant topics.

“Two of the most important financial skills we can master are saving and budgeting, and they are habits children need to practice at an early age,” said Tiffany Watkins, assistant vice president and marketing director for Arvest Bank in North Central Arkansas. “Every student walks away from this experience with more knowledge about how to manage their money and they all ended the school year with savings they didn’t have when the school year began.”

Students were encouraged to save their own money throughout the school year and utilize the information they learned in the program to help increase their savings. As students deposited money into their personal savings accounts and brought the deposit slip to class, they received credit for their accomplishment.

Students at Bergman Elementary School recently collected enough cash donations through a jeans and hat week to provide 2,175 meals to Ozark Share and Care, a local hunger relief organization.


Students were given the option to pay to wear a hat during a one-week period and teachers were given the option to pay to wear jeans during the same week. 

The fundraiser was held in support of Arvest Bank’s 8th Annual 1 Million Meals campaign, an initiative to collect non-perishable food or monetary donations to reduce hunger in the 120 communities the bank serves. Arvest teams up with local food partners in the community so every donation stays local.

The 1 Million Meals campaign continues through June 2. Donations may be dropped off at any Arvest Bank location, or by calling (866) 952-9523. Arvest credit card customers can donate Arvest Flex Rewards™ points by visiting arvestflexrewards.com and clicking on the 1 Million Meals banner. Arvest customers may donate through their Arvest GO mobile banking app. Every dollar raised through 1 Million Meals provides the equivalent of five meals for those in need.
