Arvest Bank is pleased to announce two promotions within its lending division.
Mark Stephen will serve as executive vice president and loan manager, while Jack Carney will assume the role of executive vice president over commercial service and acquisition.
“These moves are a direct result of the growth of our loan portfolio, both in size and complexity,” said Kirk Hays, president for Arvest in Tulsa. “Both Mark and Jack have extensive experience and their expertise will be invaluable not just to the bank, but more importantly, our customers.”
Stephen has been with Arvest for 17 years, most recently serving in a credit risk and credit administration role. He earned a bachelor’s degree in finance from the University of Oklahoma and master’s in business administration from the University of Tulsa.
Carney has 44 years of experience in commercial lending, including more than 10 at Arvest. He earned a bachelor’s degree in statistics and quantitative methods and master’s in finance – both at LSU.
