Glenpool groundbreakingArvest recently held a groundbreaking ceremony for its new branch in Glenpool.

Home loans with local service.

Expected to open in early 2023, the branch will be about 4,200 SF and house approximately 12 Arvest associates. That includes front-line staff as well as associates with expertise in consumer lending, mortgage lending, private banking and wealth management.

The Glenpool branch also will feature four drive-thru lanes with ATM with Live Teller capabilities. An ATM with Live Teller allows customers to have face-to-face communication and conduct transactions with Arvest tellers via a video screen. The video tellers are able to help customers complete more types of transactions than a traditional ATM, including larger withdrawal amounts, specific account inquiries, deposits of 30 items at a time, and complete check cashing.

Customers can choose whether they want to take advantage of the video teller capabilities or use the machine like a traditional ATM. Standard ATM capabilities are available 24 hours a day.

“This technology has become increasingly popular across the Arvest footprint and we are excited to bring it to Glenpool as part of this branch,” community bank president Vic Wheeler said. “This community is an important one to Arvest and we look forward to having a physical presence here and are committed to doing all we can to make Glenpool a better place to live, work and play.”

Arvest associates who participated in the groundbreaking ceremony were: Sara Dodson, Brittany Murray, Andy DeYoung, Byram Yildirim, Rebecca Lewis, Tammie Blancett, Vic Wheeler, Rita Garrison, Abby Childress, Makala Hewitt, Zach Hill, Wendy Clark, Joe Lienhard and Jimmy Rodriguez.
