AVSB’s executive management team is led by President and Chief Executive Officer Terry Almon.
Arkansas Valley State Bank has been in business since before many of today’s Broken Arrow and Tulsa residents inhabited the area. Its original location at Main Street and Dallas was founded in 1905 and continues to offer its banking services as the current corporate headquarters. While AVSB has grown throughout the years by adding two additional locations to serve its customers, 2007 brings more growth and advancement for the company.
Older than the state of Oklahoma, AVSB has plans to expand into more success and customer service this summer. The bank will open its fourth branch in the growing Stone Wood Hills area of Broken Arrow to continue its 102 years of quality products and services. The opening of its new branch will allow the institution to better serve its customers, while offering additional convenience.
“We are excited to announce our fourth location, which will provide full banking services, plus a special place for our mortgage center,” says AVSB President and CEO, Terry Almon. “This location was chosen due to office and retail growth in the northern part of Broken Arrow, in addition to its excellent, high-profile visibility. We are already gaining new customers who are anxiously anticipating our opening, and we expect many existing customers will enjoy the additional convenience.”
While the 10,000 square foot, two-story building is being built, a temporary facility will be open this summer to offer all of AVSB’s services to customers. Once open, the new, full-service branch will offer investments, business, personal and retail banking and consumer, commercial and mortgage lending. Construction should be completed sometime this fall.
AVSB’s fourth branch will open this summer in the Stone Wood Hills development of Broken Arrow.
In its fourth generation of being a family-owned institution, AVSB continues to carry on its strong tradition of community service. As customers are members of the community, the institution has made top priority of both. The AVSB staff volunteers hours of their time to various local organizations, and the bank contributes each year to several local, charitable organizations. AVSB recognizes the importance of the community and aims to invest in the neighborhoods, communities, schools and businesses in Broken Arrow and Tulsa.
