Arvest Bank is pleased to announce Ryan Cross has been recognized by The Journal Record as a member of its 2018 Achievers Under 40 class.


Cross, a vice president and commercial banker for Arvest in Oklahoma City, and the other honorees were recognized not just in a recent print version of The Journal Record, but an event held May 10 at Embassy Suites Oklahoma City Downtown/Medical Center.

“Ryan’s knowledge and proactive approach has made him an outstanding member of our team,” Ron Witherspoon, president and CEO of Arvest in Oklahoma City, said in Cross’ profile. “He is an excellent representation of dedication to his work and to his community, and I feel confident in Ryan’s abilities and integrity.”

Cross has worked in the banking industry since graduating from the University of Oklahoma with a finance and international business degree. He’s also currently enrolled in the Oklahoma Bankers Association Intermediate Banking School and will attend the Graduate School of Banking at Colorado as a second-year student this summer.

The profile also highlighted Cross’ work as a volunteer, especially his efforts on behalf of March of Dimes. As the 2017 chairman for the Oklahoma City March for Babies, according to his profile, Cross helped surpass the sponsorship goal of $75,000 to more than $100,000 and went over the $200,000 event goal to more than $250,000.

“My twins were born 12 weeks premature in 2005, and without the March of Dimes research on surfactant and the other lifesaving care that my twins received, they would not be alive today,” Cross said in the profile. “I continue to be proud to give back to such a great organization.”

Kudos to Cross for walking the “People helping people” walk in more ways than one!

Arvest Bank in Greater Kansas City is celebrating more accomplishments of their outstanding associates. Local Mortgage Loan Officer, John Kelley, has earned the status of an Assistant Vice President within the bank. John has dedicated his time and resources to serving our Belton branch and community. He has established himself as a top producer in all areas of business development for his team.


John, graduate of the University of Missouri – Columbia, has lived in Lee’s Summit since 2012. Prior to joining Arvest Bank in 2016, he spent four years working for a large residential flooring company where he gained contacts and built relationships with several home builders in the Greater Kansas City area. This laid the groundwork for his role as Mortgage Loan Officer. John takes pride in working harder than anyone else will for his customers.

When John has downtime from getting customers in their dream home, he enjoys hunting, fishing, and spending time at the Lake of the Ozarks and anything that involves the Kansas City Royals or Kansas City Chiefs!

We look forward to his continued growth as a leader while assisting our customer’s success financially.

Congratulations, John!

Students at Bergman Elementary School recently collected enough cash donations through a jeans and hat week to provide 2,175 meals to Ozark Share and Care, a local hunger relief organization.


Students were given the option to pay to wear a hat during a one-week period and teachers were given the option to pay to wear jeans during the same week. 

The fundraiser was held in support of Arvest Bank’s 8th Annual 1 Million Meals campaign, an initiative to collect non-perishable food or monetary donations to reduce hunger in the 120 communities the bank serves. Arvest teams up with local food partners in the community so every donation stays local.

The 1 Million Meals campaign continues through June 2. Donations may be dropped off at any Arvest Bank location, or by calling (866) 952-9523. Arvest credit card customers can donate Arvest Flex Rewards™ points by visiting arvestflexrewards.com and clicking on the 1 Million Meals banner. Arvest customers may donate through their Arvest GO mobile banking app. Every dollar raised through 1 Million Meals provides the equivalent of five meals for those in need.

For more information about 1 Million Meals, visit arvest.com/millionmeals.
