Before then, she spent 10 years in compliance at Iberia Financial Services.

In her new role, Cain will be responsible for the general oversight and support of the Arvest Wealth investments and insurance compliance program and team. 

"Kendra’s extensive experience managing compliance programs at large financial institutions will be an invaluable asset to our company," Asa Cottrell, Arvest Wealth president and CEO, said in the release. "We are excited to add her knowledge and expertise to the Arvest Wealth Management team as we continue to grow and navigate the changing regulatory landscape."
