Growth & History
Founded in West Memphis in 1966, Fidelity National Bank has now reached 50 years as a locally owned and operated bank, serving primarily Crittenden County, Arkansas. Our main office is in West Memphis, along with another office at Mid-Continent Plaza. We have two offices in Marion – one on Military Road and one on Highway 77 between West Memphis and Marion.
Fidelity has operated as a true community bank, as almost all of our depositors are from our immediate area, and we know most of them personally. We have stayed true to this philosophy, and it has served the bank well over the years. We now exceed $377 million is assets, and are very solid and profitable.
Our bank name has never changed in all these years, but the real growth of Fidelity began with the 1988 acquisition by the Carlson family. Beginning with $38 millions in assets, the bank has seen almost a 900 percent increase since the Carlsons took over.
Fidelity now has 65 staff members, with a fifth of them having been at the bank over 20 years, and half of the staff being here for 10 years or more. Fidelity National Bank equips our staff with the latest in bank technology to best serve the ever changing needs of our customers, such as OnLine Banking and Mobile Banking. We offer a full range of accounts and services and empower our staff to help our customers resolve difficulties. And in addition to the staff longevity, the senior directors have been with us since the Carlsons took over almost 30 years ago. All these experienced people make for a very successful team, and a profitable bank.
