Our July “Business Spotlight” is Simmons Bank! Simmons Bank has been a Southeast Arkansas banking landmark for decades, stemming from its roots in Pine Bluff. In the past few years, Simmons Bank has seen substantial growth and expanded its footprint into surrounding states including Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Tennessee, & Texas. Even with its growth both inside and outside the state, Simmons continues to be headquartered in Pine Bluff where it plays a pivotal role in the community.
Simmons Bank has been serving Star City since 1995 and has developed a full suite of financial products and services designed to meet the needs of individual consumers and business customers alike. From personal and business checking to savings plans, credit cards, loans, and insurance – Simmons has all the products and services you will need to help reach your financial goals.
Recently, Simmons hired Samantha Robertson to be their new Branch Manager of the Star City branch. Samantha stated “I am very excited for this new opportunity to make a difference in Star City and the surrounding communities. As a community focused financial institution, we believe our core values and relationship-based banking philosophy meet the personal and business banking needs of Star City. As a full service bank, Simmons Bank will offer the Star City community in-branch solutions, as well as online and digital solutions to help address customer banking preferences. To efficiently service the needs of the community, Simmons has 6 associates, including an associate who is bilingual and all are eager to serve you! Our expanding footprint proves we’ve grown steadily, while always being mindful of where we started. Longevity in banking doesn’t just happen, it’s built on a committed approach to continually provide our customers with the best banking experience possible.”
We are extremely happy to have Simmons Bank in our community and we appreciate their support and membership to the Star City Area Chamber of Commerce!
