Publisher’s Letter: Count Me In
Change was the theme of our August issue of AMP, but this month, we’d like to focus on the things we count on to always stay the same. From hometown banking to the State Fair to, of course, football — some things are perfect just the way they are.
We’ll take a look at how Arkansas banks such as Signature and Citizens are managing to maintain all the charm of a local bank while growing and expanding at a corporate rate. And we’ve got a new batch of AMP’s Best Financial Advisors, from which we handpicked five of the best to give us a look inside the industry trends and offer a few helpful tips along the way.
We’re also applauding our 2022 class of Women in Banking, all of whom prove on a daily basis that women have what it takes to not only make it in the financial world, but to make it thrive.
Speaking of thriving, this issue ushers in our first-ever list of “40 in Their Forties,” a group of tried-and-true business professionals who are in the prime of their careers. We’re all about giving credit where it’s due. So often, we see the young bucks being celebrated for all they’re slated to achieve, and rightfully so, but this one is for the leaders who are at the age where they can say they’ve made it. From young to old, from the novice to the veteran, we’re all about giving credit where it’s due.
On that note, The Little Rock Touchdown Club turned 18 this year, and we’re admiring how the program has grown to be one of the most successful Touchdown Clubs in the country. And as always, Katie Zakrzewski takes us through the “digs of the deal” with the Bank of Fayetteville.
Arkansas is home to some incredible creations and innovations, and you can count on AMP to highlight the deserving individuals and businesses who help make it that way. We appreciate you reading, and when it comes to our readers, we wouldn’t change a thing.
