Arvest Bank ranks highest both in the South Central Region and in the Southwest Region in the J.D. Power and Associates 2012 Retail Banking Satisfaction Study.

This is the fourth year that Arvest has been recognized with a regional award.

The 2012 study was conducted with more than 51,000 banking consumers throughout eleven regions across the United States.

"This award is the result of a dedicated staff and loyal customers. Our associates at every level know that the customer is our top priority and we’ve built a business around that philosophy. We are honored to be recognized by our customers for that effort yet again," said John Womack, chairman and CEO of Arvest Bank in Little Rock.
