First Arkansas Bank and Trust has been serving the Clinton area since 2008, when they acquired the Former Greers Ferry Lake State Bank, giving them a presence in the Clinton market. FAB&T’s charter location was established in 1949 by the late Kenneth Pat Wilson under the name of Jacksonville State Bank and was the first bank to open for business in the city of Jacksonville.
Since 1949, the bank and its board have been involved in economic development of their communities. This community investment was evident early on in the banks existence; Mr. Wilson was a large part of the effort that resulted in the locating of the Little Rock Air Force Base in Jacksonville in the early 50’s, and also played a big role in the establishment of the Rebsamen Memorial Hospital, now know as North Metro Medical Center.
Carrie Renfrow, branch manager, states that FAB&T strives to provide great customer service and treats their customers like family. It is this dedication to customer service and their reinvestment to our community with activates like the Angel Tree Program, cereal drive, Clinton Chamber, Rotary among others that help display the passion FAB&T and its employees have for our community.
FAB&T provides great customer service with an experienced staff and with Ronnie Housley as your local loan officer, they are well equipped to meet all you banking needs. Customers will find all the conveniences of the modern banking world with the home town feel they have grown to expect.
