Eddie Curran, of Nowata, recently joined RCB Bank as its new VP Business Services Group Manager.
This is a new job position at RCB Bank and Curran will serve as a leader and sales coach for the bank’s Business Services Group. The Business Services Group works closely with business customers on RCB Bank’s variety of money management solutions, including Merchant Card Services (credit card processing), Remote Deposit Capture, Direct Deposit and Online Banking, Mobile Deposit, Account View, Direct Debit, Lock Box Services, Positive Pay and Pay Cards. The five-member Group which serves all of RCB Bank’s 33 locations in Oklahoma and Kansas aims to make business banking convenient, thus allowing more time with their customers, according to Curran.
“When the opportunity to work at RCB Bank came up, I couldn’t pass it up,” said Curran. “RCB’s approach and philosophy of building relationships with customers rather than pushing widgets matched mine and gives me the chance to utilize my skills in a new and challenging format.”
Previously Curran worked for IBT, and for the last 14 years he has worked with banks in a consulting/training capacity as well as in the design and construction of branch projects. RCB Bank was one of his clients at IBT; Curran helped RCB Bank with the design of its new branches in Stillwater and Edmond and various remodels in other communities.
Because of that partnership and Curran’s proven performance as a team leader, he was approached by RCB Bank when the new position came about.
“Our interaction with Eddie in his previous position proved his customer service abilities,” said Roger Mosier, President and CEO of RCB Bank. His approach to customer service mirrors ours at RCB Bank, make a connection, build a relationship and be mindful of the needs of our customers.”
Curran currently lives in Nowata and enjoys everything outdoors: working in the yard, hunting, and spending time at the lake. He has two kids, his scientist and experimental cook, Jozi, 11, and his athlete of the family, Vance, 9.
Curran sits on the Nowata Boys and Girls Club Board where he helps run T-ball, softball and baseball programs as well as various fundraising events like their annual Golf Tournament and Princess Tea Party.
“Everything starts with the kids,” he said. “I believe that it is important that every child be given every opportunity to succeed and that’s our objective for the kids of Nowata County. By providing them a safe place to get a meal, help with homework, partner up with a mentor, gain life skills or just have a good time, they see that there are people out there who care and that they can succeed in life no matter their circumstances.”
He is also a partner in Chameleon Sounds, a DJ company that does a lot of charity work providing music and lights for events in the community like all the Nowata Boy & Girls Club dances and the Nowata, Osage and Washington County Relay For Life.
