Simmons Bank has been named to Fortune’s list of “100 Fastest-Growing Companies” for 2020, the only Arkansas-based company to make the list. Fortune’s annual recognition seeks to identify “the world’s best three-year performers in revenues, profits and stock returns,” according to its website.
“Simmons Bank is honored by this recognition and deeply grateful to our customers and associates whose passion and loyalty have fueled our success,” said George Makris Jr., chairman and CEO of Simmons Bank. “Our outstanding growth, coupled with our 100-plus-year heritage of community banking, is a combination that we’re very proud of.”
Simmons Bank’s three-year annual revenue growth rate of 35 percent was among the factors leading to Fortune’s listing. The company has grown from approximately $3.2 billion in assets to an over $21 billion-asset company in less than seven years.
