Bank of the Ozarks was founded in 1903 as a small community bank in Jasper, Arkansas. We added an additional bank in Ozark, Arkansas, in 1937.In 1979, George Gleason, a 25-year-old attorney, purchased controlling interest and assumed active management of the bank as chairman of the board and chief executive officer.From the beginning of his tenure, Mr. Gleason instilled a personal commitment to excellence, fair dealing, and exceptional customer service. These priorities have become cornerstones of the bank's character, even as we have grown to over 250 offices in ten states under Mr. Gleason's continued stewardship.
