Simmons Bank is strengthening its leadership in Northwest Arkansas following a recent acquisition in its northwest regional market. The company has named Greg Martin as executive vice president and division president in the Northwest Arkansas, Kansas and Oklahoma markets.
Martin’s promotion comes on the heels of Simmons First National Corporation’s continued growth. Simmons most recently acquired the Landrum Company, based in Missouri, and its subsidiary Landmark Bank in October 2019.
Previously, Martin served as Simmons’ Northwest Arkansas market president. During his tenure, he oversaw a 68 percent increase in loans and a 56 percent increase in deposits for his region.
“Simmons is on a remarkable growth trajectory, one that Greg’s track record already strongly complements,” Matt Reddin, Simmons executive vice president and chief banking officer, said in a statement. “Greg has excelled in his role as Northwest Arkansas market president, and we’re confident that this increased responsibility will amplify his impact all the more for our customers and communities.”
Martin attended the University of Arkansas and the Southwestern Graduate School of Banking at Southern Methodist University.
