Brittany Little grew up around retailing in her family’s business, which initially led her to pursue a general business degree at the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville. However, a part-time job as a bank teller prompted a change of direction.
“I realized I liked banking a lot more than retailing,” said Little, who grew up in Huntsville (Madison County). “Banking was my thing.”
She joined First State Bank of Northwest Arkansas as a loan officer after graduating with a bachelor’s in finance with an emphasis in banking in December 2005.
Little rose through the ranks at the $276 million-asset lender, renamed Today’s Bank in 2014. Most recently, she was promoted to executive vice president and chief financial officer in January.
Little is a member of the Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce Leadership Class of XX and former Huntsville Chamber of Commerce president. She served on the Arkansas Children’s Northwest Color of Hope Silent Auction Committee in 2018-19 and has been a board member of the Northwest Arkansas Single Parent Scholarship Fund since 2019.
