Less than two weeks ago, Home Bancshares chairman John Allison said he’d be making an announcement about the management reorganization involving his bank’s acquisition of Liberty Bank.

On Tuesday (July 9), Home Bancshares’ subsidiary Centennial Bank announced that Davy Carter will serve as regional president.

Carter, the current Arkansas Speaker of the House, left the bank earlier this year, but returned after the session.

The bank says Carter’s duties and responsibilities will include the Liberty Bank acquisition.

“We were grateful Davy returned to our corporate family a few months ago,” said Randy Sims, CEO of Centennial Bank. “This will be the perfect opportunity for Davy and the bank,” said Sims.

Carter is a graduate of Arkansas State University in Jonesboro with a bachelor’s degree in finance. In addition, he holds a juris doctorate with honors from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock’s William H. Bowen School of Law and is an alumnus of the Graduate School of Banking at Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge.
