A Conversation with Randy Wilburn

About this Episode: 

Since starting this podcast back in February of 2019 I have had one great guest after another to feature.

We are blessed beyond measure with this podcast. We’ve made new friends, uncovered great places to hang out, found some fantastic places to eat, and learned what makes Northwest Arkansas tick.

Need-a hint?

Easy, it is the people that make Northwest Arkansas a great place to live.

Crystal Bridges, Devils Den, Beaver Lake, the Museum of Native American History, Theatre Squared, Single Parent Scholarship Fund, The Jones Center, Slaughter Pen, the University of Arkansas, Walmart, B-Unlimited, are all great!

These are all FEATURES

The BENEFITS are the people. And, our goal is to continue telling their stories as long you will listen.

Enjoy this reflective episode, and please let us know what you think.

All this and more on this episode of I am Northwest Arkansas.

Signature Bank of Arkansas –  

Signature Bank was founded here in Northwest Arkansas in 2005. Their focus is personal and community banking. When you bank with a community bank, you’re investing in local businesses, local entrepreneurs, local charities, and the causes close to home. Signature Bank has worked hard to earn its tagline, “Community Banking at its Best.”

You may ask why bank at Signature? 

Because they focus on the customer instead of having a branch on every corner, this means you can have your questions answered by a real person, whether you’re reaching out to the call center or your banker’s cell phone. You can access any ATM in the country without fear of a fee.  They will refund all of those fees at the end of every month. Finally, they are constantly improving their digital offerings to ensure you can access the best financial tools from your laptop, phone, or tablet 24 hours a day.

Signature Bank of Arkansas is a full-service bank offering traditional checking and savings accounts, investment accounts, business and personal loans, and mortgages.

Give the folks at Signature Bank a call (479-684-3700) or visit their website Signature.Bank and let them know you heard about them on the I am Northwest Arkansas Podcast. 

Signature Bank of Arkansas is a Member of the FDIC and an Equal Housing Lender.
