Arvest Bank named four new board members for its Springfield region.
Justin French, Craig McCoy, Daniel Ogunyemi and Krystal Simon are the newest members to the 12-member board, according to a news release. Ogunyemi and Simon joined the board in June, followed by French and McCoy this month, said Arvest spokesperson Brandy Garcia, noting the board members do not have term limits.

French is a producer for insurance firm Barker Phillips Jackson Inc.; McCoy is president of Mercy Springfield Communities; Ogunyemi is director of diversity, equity and inclusion at Ozarks Technical Community College; and Simon is CEO of Care to Learn.
