Bryan Greathouse wanted to pursue a career in finance from an investment standpoint and thought the best route was to become a financial adviser.
And that’s what he did after graduating in 2010 from the University of Central Arkansas with a bachelor’s degree in business administration with an emphasis in finance.
“I quickly found out I wasn’t a salesman,” said Greathouse, who grew up in Dover (Pope County).
After a 15-month stint at Edward D. Jones & Co., he later joined Arvest Wealth Management in Little Rock and transitioned into a new role as vice president of fixed-income analysis.
Nearly six years of experience at Arvest opened the door at Bank OZK, where Greathouse moved in April 2018 to become vice president of liquidity and funds management.
A year later, he was drawn to Conway and Centennial Bank and rose from senior asset-liability analyst and team leader to the chief investment officer post in May 2021.
Greathouse is a volunteer coach for youth basketball and baseball. He is a past volunteer with the Boys & Girls Club of Faulkner County.
