Dear First National Bank Customer:
We are pleased to announce that First National Bank of Wynne recently entered into an agreement to be acquired by First Financial Bank, headquartered in El Dorado, Arkansas.
We are excited to join the First Financial Bank family! Together, we share a longtime commitment to customer-focused community banking built on service and relationships. First Financial Bank understands the impact and responsibility we have to the communities we serve and operates under that same philosophy. The combination will result in more locations throughout Arkansas and neighboring states and, with the benefit of First Financials’ broader range of banking services, will enhance our ability to serve our customers. As one of the nation’s leading agricultural lenders, First Financial Bank will provide even more specialized agricultural lending services to our area, in addition to secondary market mortgage lending combined with award winning customer service.
In the near future, your banking services provided by First National Bank of Wynne will be transitioning to First Financial Bank. For now, there’s no need for you to do anything. You can continue banking as usual at any First National Bank location, and we will notify you of changes well in advance. Our goal is to make the transition as seamless as possible.
Your deposits will continue to be insured as they have in the past, and both your loan and deposit accounts will automatically transfer. You do not need to do anything right now.
On behalf of our Board of Directors and staff, thank you for your business and continued loyalty. As I’ve told our bank team, “We’re in good hands with people who are a lot like us!”. We are grateful for the privilege of being your financial partner, and we look forward to serving you with industry leading banking services in the years ahead.
Sean H. Williams
President and CEO
