We’re excited to announce that Premier Bank of Arkansas is officially part of Southern Bancorp, one of America’s oldest and largest community development banks!

Although very little will change for customers until early 2023, we wanted to share our excitement and provide some information on what you can expect in the coming months.


You won’t see many changes until all three of Premier Bank’s branches convert to Southern Bancorp locations in early 2023.

Until then, your accounts, loans, debit cards, etc. will remain the same.

Along the way, we’ll keep you up-to-date so you’ll know what to expect.

Your Premier Bank of Arkansas team can answer questions.


Make sure we have your most up-to-date contact information so you don’t miss out on any news.

Southern Bancorp in the News:


Will Premier Bank change its name to Southern Bancorp?

Eventually, but that won’t happen until early 2023. In fact, very little will change until that time, and we’ll provide plenty of information ahead of any changes.

Will my branches remain open?

Yes, all three Premier Bank branch locations are open and ready to serve you!

Can I access my Premier Bank accounts at Southern Bancorp?

Not yet. Once the Premier Bank branches fully convert to Southern Bancorp in early 2023, customers will then have access to banking at any of Southern Bancorp’s 54 locations.
