Help us fight hunger in our community.

Paul is retired and most recently served as interim general manager of the Hot Springs Village Property Owners Association (2020-2021), where he served as the director of golf from 1997-2016. He also served as general manager of operations for Hale Irwin Golf Services from 1992-1997.

“We couldn’t be more excited to add John to our board,” said Franklin Bass, community bank president for Arvest in Hot Springs. “His business background and passion for the Hot Springs Village community will be invaluable not just to Arvest, but to our customers and all those we serve in southwest Arkansas.”
