FBT adds 2 to Board of Directors


FBT Bank announced Tuesday the addition of two new members to its Board of Directors. Charles Anderson and Lynn Wilson, both small business owners in southeast Arkansas, will join the nine-member board that assists the bank in establishing policies that govern its day-to-day operations.

“Both Charles and Lynn exemplify outstanding leadership in business and in their civic endeavors,” FBT President Jim Hulse said. “They also each have a profound understanding of the significance of FBT in the communities we serve, making them invaluable assets to our board. We’re thrilled to welcome them as our newest members.”

Anderson, from Pine Bluff, is a residential real estate developer and commercial real estate investor. He will complete the remaining two years of retiring Director Clyde Williams’ term. Before his appointment, Anderson served as a member of the FBT Jefferson County Advisory Board.

“I am a longtime customer of FBT, and the bank has been instrumental in helping me meet my business goals as well as those for my family’s financial well-being,” Anderson said. “I appreciate the support they provide all the people of southeast Arkansas, and I’m pleased to join the Board.”

Wilson, a Rison resident, co-owns with her husband pharmacies dedicated to wellness, self-care and longevity in Rison and Fordyce and is an active member of the Arkansas Pharmacists Association and the National Community Pharmacists Association. She will serve a three-year term on the board.

“As a business owner, I’ve always believed in the power of collaboration and community empowerment, and I’m excited to represent the people of Cleveland County and bring my unique insight to the FBT Board of Directors,” Wilson said.
