2018 40 Under 40 Yearbook: Michael Gandy, 37

Class of 2015

Posted online

Then: Marketing officer, Arvest Bank
Now: Merchant services officer, Arvest Bank

Michael Gandy has changed inside and out since 2015.

After undergoing a sleeve gastrectomy surgery in 2016, he’s lost more than 180 pounds. The weight loss has empowered him to get back into music, and he’s currently involved with a band called Failing Minnesota. That same year, he and his wife Lauren had Gibson, who turned 2 years old in 2018.

At work, Arvest Bank promoted Gandy in 2015 to his current role of merchant services officer.

“It allows me to go back home sometimes,” he says of the job split between the Springfield market and his hometown of Joplin. “We handle any sort of credit card processing for our Arvest Bank customers.”
