Camden native Matthew Steven Reddin, 31, took his business administration degree from Ouachita Baptist University and initially put it to work for Acxiom Corp. But after two years, he switched to banking, and that seems to have stuck.

After stops at U.S. Bank and Regions Bank, he was hired by Bank of the Ozarks in 2006. His personal loan portfolio is now about $60 million, and his Professional & Executive Client Group's portfolio is about to crack the $100 million mark.

The banking business is not as easy as it was when he was a 23-year-old rookie, Reddin acknowledged. "I'm learning to be more conservative and to get to know your customer better on the front end and not just look for the deal."

It's already years too late for Reddin to own his own bank as early in life as did his mentor, Bank of the Ozarks CEO George Gleason, but it is part of his long-range goal.
"I do want to run my own bank someday, but now I want to spend as much time [at Bank of the Ozarks] as George will have me around him."

Reddin has been involved in Leadership Greater Little Rock, Habitat for Humanity, Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Arkansas and the Committee for the Future of Arkansas Children's Hospital.
