Thirty Years at Arvest

Jul 25, 2019

This week's Northwest Arkansas Business Journal Report includes a conversation with Steven Plaisance, President & CEO of Arvest Mortgage Company.

In today’s Northwest Arkansas Business Journal report, Paul Gatling introduces us to Silicon Valley business accelerator Plug and Play, which will be establishing itself in Bentonville in partnership with Walmart, Tyson and J.B. Hunt and will focus on emerging supply chain and logistics technologies. 

We find out why the three federally recognized tribes of Cherokee people have declared a state of emergency for the Cherokee language. Plus, for the first time in 19 years, voters have passed a fee increase for the Northeast Benton County Volunteer Fire Department. And, we go to Siloam Springs where historic American Legion Post 29 is celebrating its centennial.

In today’s Northwest Arkansas Business Journal report, Paul Gatling discusses the expansion of United Federal Credit Union in the region with long-time mortgage lender Scott Jeffus, who has been hired to be the company’s Director of Mortgage Sales in Arkansas.  

Since 2014, This Is My Brave has been fighting mental health stigma by producing shows across the country that feature storytellers sharing personal experiences of mental illness. We speak with the producers about the Northwest Arkansas version. Plus, we go to Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge where their rescue bears are getting a taste of the wild in their new habitats. And, we stop by the state's only cidery, which has now grown into Central Arkansas.
