Arvest appoints Springfield president

Posted online

Arvest Bank has named a new president for its Springfield market after its previous leader recently exited the company.

Jason England was promoted to the president and CEO role for Arvest Springfield, according to a news release issued this afternoon. He succeeds Kyle Hubbard, Arvest's two-year market president who left for a job in Jenks, Oklahoma, at Gateway First Bank's corporate office.

"Jason’s experience and expertise, as well as his passion for serving our customers and communities, made him the ideal person for this job,” said Brad Krieger, regional executive for Arvest, in the release. “He is committed to our bankwide goals of expanding our digital service offerings to meet the needs and expectations of our customers, while also maintaining the high level of personal service our customers have come to expect.”

England most recently served as executive vice president and loan manager. England and Shane Cowger, sales manager for Arvest Springfield, began splitting Hubbard's duties on an interim basis after his April 18 exit, according to past reporting.

England has worked at Arvest for nearly 24 years.

“I am honored and humbled by this promotion, which I view as the opportunity of a lifetime,” he said in the release. “I have formed incredible bonds and friendships at Arvest and throughout Springfield since coming to the area.”

Arvest in 2021 ranked No. 15 on Springfield Business Journal's list of the largest banks and savings banks. The company recorded 2021 deposits in the Springfield metropolitan statistical area of $415.5 million.
