Chambers Bank was founded in 1930 as Danville State Bank by current CEO/Chairman John Ed Chambers III’s grandfather, Judge John Ed Chambers. The newly established Bank replaced Yell County Bank as the area’s only financial institution after it failed during the Great Depression. In 1980, Chambers chartered the Scott County Bank in Waldron, and throughout the 1990s, Chambers Bancshares, Inc., the holding company for the Bank, acquired ownership in various banks throughout the state.
Since 1930, the Bank has remained in the Chambers family and grown not only through acquisitions but also through a dedicated commitment to serving the communities where we live and work. Today, the Bank has over $800 million in total assets and operates 18 branches throughout Arkansas. Alongside CEO/Chairman John Ed Chambers III, Mike Donnell serves as the Bank’s President; together they have amassed a staff of Arkansas bankers committed to expanding their footprint and providing excellent banking services to the communities where we live and work.
Chambers Bank’s Vision is: In the spirit of community and rooted in a tradition that spans over 80 years, we strive every day to provide our Arkansas neighbors with banking solutions that enrich their financial well-being for every stage of their personal life or business cycle. Because our roots run deep in Arkansas, we believe in making ourselves ever-available to the needs of others and acting with honesty, integrity and in the best interests of our customers and communities.
We invite you to come see for yourself why Chambers Bank is the Natural Choice for the Natural State.
