“We are incredibly proud of this new bank,” said Oldner, it is the culmination of years of study by our management team and ownership. We set out to build a state-of-the-art financial center, which marries the latest technology with a very personal customer service model and an architectural style that reflects our Ozark Mountain roots in an ultra-modern way. We chose to build this bank in White Hall because we believe that this family-oriented community has tremendous potential, and that this particular location, in the middle of the soon-to-be-widened Sheridan Road corridor, is poised for an unprecedented growth spurt.”

Marnie Oldner, Chief Executive Officer of Stone Bank has announced the official opening of its new community banking center at 2 p.m., May 4, in White Hall. The bank will have a formal ribbon cutting with members of the White Hall and Pine Bluff Chambers of Commerce, the Mayor of White Hall, Joel Foster and other local officials and the bank’s White Hall Advisory Board and staff. The public is invited to attend the ceremony, tour the new facility and attend a reception in the new Community Pavilion located behind the bank. The new bank is at 7739 Sheridan Road.

“We are incredibly proud of this new bank,” said Oldner, it is the culmination of years of study by our management team and ownership.  We set out to build a state-of-the-art financial center, which marries the latest technology with a very personal customer service model and an architectural style that reflects our Ozark Mountain roots in an ultra-modern way.  We chose to build this bank in White Hall because we believe that this family-oriented community has tremendous potential, and that this particular location, in the middle of the soon-to-be-widened Sheridan Road corridor, is poised for an unprecedented growth spurt.”

The banks’ architecture features a unique style that brings outdoor elements of wood and stone into the building, while utilizing a great deal of specialized glasswork which allows natural light to flow throughout the structure.  

The latest financial technology is integrated seamlessly into the facility, including the latest 24-hour Interactive Teller Machine, teleconferencing capabilities and the integration of wireless devices into service delivery.  “Our use of technology in this new bank was driven by our study of some of the most progressive banking and one-on-one service delivery organizations in America,” according to Chief Technology Officer Bruce Upton.  “We’ve been gathering ideas for years and we feel that the White Hall bank is the culmination of that research and our own creativity.”

Kelly Williams, Stone Bank’s Vice President and White Hall Market Manager said. “ It won’t look or feel like any bank you’ve ever experienced. Not only do we have a beautiful building, it’s been designed with a living room-comfortable area to do your day-to-day banking, complete with a coffee bar, a charging station for mobile devices and private areas for one-on-one service.”

The bank features a community room for organizations to use for meetings and a truly unique covered pavilion for up to 100 people with a full kitchen for groups to use for gatherings and parties.

Kelly Williams is a White Hall native who has assembled a very experienced and well-connected staff, including Assistant Vice President and Customer Service Manager Sheila Cannon, a veteran of more than 30 years of banking in Jefferson County.  In addition to Williams and Cannon, the staff of the bank is:

Gayla Horn, Assistant Vice President/Loan Processor;

Melanie Mitchell, Customer Service Representative; Sheen Ziegler, Customer Service Representative and Morgan Black, Customer Service Representative.

Stone Bank was founded when a group of Mountain View businessmen purchased the charter of the Bank of Altheimer in 2007. In addition to the headquarters in Mountain View, and the White Hall bank, the bank has offices in Little Rock and Harrison, Arkansas.
