This week continues our special mini series where Matt sits down with the four Arkansas Business Hall of Fame inductees, continuing with George Gleason II. George is chairman and chief executive officer of Bank OZK and an Arkansas Business Hall of Fame Inductee for 2022.

He shares how childhood chores on the farm and in the family business shaped his career and his bank. He learned bookkeeping at age 12, planned his parents’ estate at 16, and then purchased the controlling interest of Bank of the Ozarks (now BANK OZK) at age 25! He also highlights how listening, collaborating and continually improving created alignment in the mission, a better customer experience and more opportunities for employees.
