Arkansas: Arvest Bank Taps Norris to Lead Mortgage Lending in Northeast Arkansas

On September 11, Fayetteville-based Arvest Bank announced the promotion of David Norris to vice president and mortgage lending supervisor for the bank’s Northeast Arkansas market. Based in Jonesboro, he will supervise the mortgage production team and originate mortgage loans. Prior to relocating to Jonesboro, Norris was a mortgage loan officer in central Arkansas and has been an Arvest Bank associate for nine years.

“David has demonstrated his expertise in mortgage lending for some time now and has helped numerous customers identify and secure the best mortgage loan for their particular needs,” says Jim Cargill, president and CEO of Arvest Bank in Northeast, Central and Southwest Arkansas.

Norris earned a bachelor’s degree in history and political science from Arkansas Tech University in Russellville. He was recognized among Arvest Bank’s “Best of the Best” mortgage originators in 2016. Norris currently serves on the board of the Mortgage Bankers Association of Arkansas.

Arvest Bank operates more than 250 bank branches in Arkansas, Oklahoma, Missouri and Kansas through a group of 15 locally managed banks, each with its own board and management team. These banks serve customers in more than 120 communities.
