Davy Carter, speaker of the Arkansas House of Representatives, today was named executive vice president at Home BancShares Inc. of Conway.
Carter, who is serving his third term in the state legislature, formerly served as division president for Centennial Bank in Cabot, where he remains a member of the local bank board. Carter had been considering entering the race for governor, but announced Friday that he would not seek the Republican nomination in 2014.
“Davy brings more than a decade of financial experience to Home BancShares, including his years with Centennial Bank," said John W. Allison, chairman of Home BancShares. "His outstanding leadership skills and strong community ties will help further build upon our reputation for strength and service."
Carter is a finance graduate of Arkansas State University in Jonesboro and an honors graduate of University of Arkansas at Little Rock's William H. Bowen School of Law.
“This is a great opportunity, and I’m excited to be back with the Centennial Bank and Home BancShares family," he said. "I look forward to being a part of this outstanding corporation, and its executive leadership team.”
Carter and his wife Cara live in Cabot with their three children Jackson, John David and Anna Claire.
