Simmons Bank has announced two significant promotions while also hiring on two new employees to senior positions. The positions range from chief banking officer to the company’s new Arkansas community president.
The promotions are for Matt Reddin, who has been tapped to be the executive vice president and chief banking officer, and Chris White, the Arkansas regional community president.
Reddin previously served as Simmons Bank’s president of banking enterprise. While 18 years of banking experience, Reddin will be charged with overseeing the bank’s revenue-generating business units.
“Matt’s natural leadership and penchant for creative solutions have strongly complemented Simmons’ growth trajectory,” said Marty Casteel, Simmons Bank chairman and CEO. “We’re confident that his skills will be leveraged to even greater effect with this enhanced role.”
White most recently served as central Arkansas community president, where he developed Simmons’ presence in the Little Rock area. He now oversees Simmons’ 11 Arkansas community presidents.
The new hires include Paul Lowe and Lisa Montegjo Chrzanowski, who are joining Simmons Bank from outside financial companies.
Lowe is stepping into White’s vacated role as central Arkansas market president. He is joining the bank from Arvest Bank, where he was executive director of corporate and commercial banking.
Lisa Montejo Chrzanowski is the newly appointed director of C&I banking. She joins Simmons from Bank of America, where she was the senior credit products officer and senior vice president.
