In 2006, First Arkansas Bank and Trust acquired First Team Bank, a financial institution consisting of 12 locations in Heber Springs (formerly The Cleburne County Bank), Greers Ferry, Concord, Damascus, Guy, Greenbrier, Center Ridge, Pangburn, Marshall and Quitman. From that moment on, FAB&T has been a staple of our community.

The great employees are part of what make FAB&T superior in the banking industry. Locally, you’ll find SVP Commerial Loan Officer John Simmons and his team assisting the community and looking for ways to get involved and support Greenbrier. Shortly after college, Simmons was hired as Terry Milam’s loan assistant and he jokes, “I knew I wanted to be in the banking industry after we went together and signed papers on the hood of a guy’s truck.” Immediately when you walk in to the Greenbrier location, you will be greeted with that same friendly smile and genuine customer service.
When asked if they wanted to get involved with Glisten in Greenbrier, without hesitation they jumped in full force and for that, Greenbrier is extremely grateful. “Without FAB&T joining forces with the City of Greenbrier, I’m not sure we could have had Glisten if I’m being completely honest. They believed in this vision and what it would mean to our community and because of their trust in me, I knew we could pull this off,” shares Ashton Pruitt, event coordinator.
FAB&T is also assisting with contributing monetarily to Greenbrier’s first mural that is set to be completed in 2022. The message “You Belong Here” resonates with the values of First Arkansas Bank & Trust.
FAB&T is a family-owned and managed commercial bank chartered in Jacksonville, Arkansas with Total Assets of $760 million and 22 locations in Central and North Central Arkansas. FAB&T also offers trust and wealth management services, 24/7 Customer Call Center, and a credit card division, located in Kennesaw, Georgia.
We are greatly appreciative of FAB&T’s commitment to investing in Greenbrier and our surrounding communities and celebrate them on winning our 2022 Greenbrier Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year.
