My father, Perry, began working at McClain County National Bank (MCNB) back in 1966. Having a first-hand view while growing up of what could be accomplished in banking within our local area was a big motivating factor for me to work here.
My first real job after college was at MCNB as I worked here for about a year before leaving to work at SMU for 4½ years. Then my wife, Shandy, and I decided to come back home. I’m now in my second McClain Bank stint and I’ve been here for over 23 years now. I am currently serving as SVP/Norman Branch Manager.
This area has always been home to me as I am a proud Purcell High School Dragon (Class of 1984). I also graduated from OSU in 1989 with a Business Admin degree and completed my MBA from OCU in 2001. Currently I am a 3rd year student at the University of Wisconsin Graduate School of Banking. Due to the Covid-19 outbreak, I will graduate in 2021. When away from the Bank, I enjoy watching my twins grow up and spending some quality time with family and friends, as well as watching sports, traveling, and listening to music.
For me, the best part of banking is establishing those personal relationships with our customers and trying to help them realize their dreams, whether that’s owning their own business, buying some land or buying a new vehicle.
