“We couldn’t be more excited to add Roger to our team,” Arvest Equipment Finance director of sales John Bradford said. “His extensive experience and expertise will provide significant benefits to us and, more importantly, our customers.”

Additionally, Arvest Equipment Finance is hosting an open house-style event at its new headquarters in Fort Smith’s Chaffee Crossing Historic District from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on July 14. The newly remodeled space is about 9,000 square feet and is part of a three-acre parcel that provides room for anticipated growth.
“We have said for a while now that we are ready to put down roots that will allow us to grow in ways that benefit our customers, our community and our associates,” Arvest Equipment Finance president Eric Bunnell said. “That time is here and we’re excited about the additions of Roger and Patrick and thrilled to be able to show off our new headquarters.”
