Arvest Bank ranks highest among its peers in customer satisfaction with retail banking in the South Central Region. That’s according to the J.D. Power 2019 U.S. Retail Banking Satisfaction Study, released today. 

This marks the sixth time in 10 years Arvest has ranked highest in the South Central Region, and gives the bank a total of 14 J.D. Power wins in the last 11 years. 

Additionally, among rank-eligible banks, Arvest received the South Central’s highest scores in two of six factors analyzed by the study: convenience and channel activities. The South Central Region consists of Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi and Tennessee. 

“We are both proud and humbled to receive this extraordinary honor, which is based largely on what our customers experience as we help them throughout their financial journey through multiple contact channels,” Arvest president and CEO Kevin Sabin said. “This award is a direct reflection of the commitment and hard work our bank associates put in every day.” 

Arvest ranked second in the Southwest Region, which consists of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, Oklahoma, Utah and Wyoming.

Additionally, since 2014, Arvest has supported small business in Arkansas with 321 loans totaling more than $104 million, which supported an estimated 3,000 jobs in the state.

“The impact of these high-achieving, dedicated lenders can be felt throughout our communities as they supply needed finding to entrepreneurs to start or expand small businesses and create good-paying American jobs that help strengthen our economy,” regional administrator Justin Crouse said in a news release issued by the SBA.
