Rogers-based Generations Bank has promoted Lindsay Chaney from compliance officer to chief operations officer. Chaney will oversee all administrative and operational functions of the bank.
“We are excited for Lindsay to have this opportunity,” Generations Bank Chairman Jon Harrell said in a statement. “Her unique skillset of technical expertise and strong communication skills will allow her to play a huge role in the continued growth of our bank.
“Every task and challenge presented to her during her career has been accomplished in exemplary fashion. I am confident she can help lead our team through this ever-changing, dynamic environment we operate in today.”
Chaney started her career at Generations Bank after graduating from the University of Arkansas with a degree in mathematics. She joined the bank as a part-time teller in June 2006, then quickly moved into several supervisory roles and management positions including head teller, loan coordinator, and loan operations officer.
“With this position, you get to see the 30,000-foot view of how the bank works and how all departments and employees are so vital to make the bank run smoothly,” Chaney said. “It will allow me to find where support may be needed in certain departments and where efficiencies can be done on the day-to-day responsibilities of all employees.”
Generations Bank relocated its charter from south Arkansas to Rogers earlier this year. Harrell is the fifth generation of Harrell family bankers to lead the company since its founding in October 1907.
The company now has nine brick-and-mortar locations in Arkansas, including four in Northwest Arkansas and the Fort Smith metro. Generations Bank is also building a branch in Bentonville.
As of March 31, Generations Bank had assets of $542.65 million, according to the FDIC. That’s an increase of nearly 14% from the previous year.
