The Bank of Arkansas, a subsidiary of BOK Financial, is expanding their network in Northwest Arkansas.
The newest BOA, a 4,500-square-foot, newly constructed building located at 1303 SE Walton Boulevard in Bentonville and will offer full service banking for businesses and consumers and will offer specialties in commercial banking, personal financial services, and trust.
“Expanding into Bentonville allows us to better serve our customers in Benton County,” said Bank of Arkansas CEO Jeff Dunn. “We’ve been impressed with the growth of this market and we’re pleased to be part of this business community.”
The Bentonville branch will be staffed by experienced local bankers. Larry Daniel was recently named president of Benton County for Bank of Arkansas and will oversee client relationships and business development. Senior Vice President James Smith directs the personal financial services division and Dan Morris is vice president of commercial lending. Lonnie Copps was recently appointed as senior vice president and senior trust officer and manages the personal and corporate trust division in Northwest Arkansas. Karen Minor is the branch manager.
“Our philosophy is to hire the best local talent available,” Dunn said. “The staff of our Bentonville branch is a perfect example because they are part of our community and they anticipate the needs of our clients.”

An experienced bi-lingual staff also is an important part of the company’s service to the Northwest Arkansas area.
