Chairman and CEO
Tommy May, a director at the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis, continues in his 17th year at the helm of Simmons First, where total assets topped $3.4 billion. That growth was aided by two FDIC-assisted acquisitions in Kansas and Missouri during 2010 that brought in assets of nearly $600 million.
May led a successful executive road show that raised $70 million in new capital in advance of the shopping spree. Before landing the top role at the firm, he was president and CEO of Simmons First Bank in Pine Bluff beginning in February 1987 after 11 years at El Dorado’s Exchange Bank & Trust.
