First Security Bank Muscles Into Russellville

Two Arkansas banks have added to their inventory of brick-and-mortar locations during the first quarter and two more have new branches in the works.

First Security Bank of Searcy expanded its Arkansas-only network to Russellville. The full-service branch is No. 74 for the $5.2 billion-asset lender and its first in Pope County.

Piggott State Bank opened its first branch outside of its hometown in an intracounty move. The Rector office, 13 miles away, is the $80.9 million-asset lender’s second full-service branch.

Diamond Bank of Murfreesboro is going to Texas in its latest move. The Texarkana branch would transform the $528.7 million-asset lender into an interstate bank.

Cornerstone Bank of Eureka Springs intends to open a full-service branch in neighboring Boone County. The Harrison location represents the sixth location for the $215.4 million lender.
