Arvest Launches New Services for Health Care, Food Value Chain Industries

2 min read

Arvest Bank of Fayetteville announced the launch of two “centers of excellence” to meet the needs of business owners in the health and food value chain industries.

In a news release, Arvest said the centers will help it offer new products and solutions tailored to those industries.

“Arvest is well-known for its community focus, so while it’s unique for a bank of our size to establish dedicated centers of excellence, doing so will allow us to use that strength to better serve our customers,” Laura Merling, Arvest’s chief transformation and operations officer, said in the release.

Geordie Sanborn was named general manager of the center focused on serving the health care industry. He brings more than 15 years of experience driving sales across the health care ecosystem to the role. Most recently, he was senior vice president of health care strategy and initiatives at Bank of America, where he was responsible for driving the expansion of the bank’s footprint across health care software vendors.

Levi Price was named general manager for the center focused on serving the food value chain industry. Price has been an Arvest employee for nearly 12 years, beginning as a credit analyst and rising to become a commercial banker and then a loan manager for the Siloam Springs region. He’s an adviser to poultry operators in the area and an owner/operator of his own cow/calf operation.

“Geordie and Levi have the experience and industry reputation to successfully lead this initiative and we’re excited for the opportunity this will bring to our customers in these respective markets,” Merling said.
