The Journal Record in Oklahoma City has releases the results of its second-ever Reader Rankings, and for the second year in a row, Arvest Bank has received prominent recognition. 

Before we get to the specifics, let’s look at how the Reader Rankings were compiled. For starters, The Journal Record posted an online ballot with 52 categories encompassing the areas of construction and design, energy, entertainment, finance/accounting, general business, health care, higher educations, hospitality, legal services, real estate and information technology. 

Readers were then notified of the ballot via direct emails and print ads. In total, more than 600 businesses and organizations were listed on the official online ballot.                                                           

Voting took place from March 5-April 16, and the surveys generated more than 2,250 responses from across Oklahoma. The results were tallied to come up with the list of award-winning businesses, and that brings us back to Arvest. 

We are proud to share the following categories, in which Arvest Bank and Arvest Wealth Management took top honors:

Arvest Bank is pleased to announce Ryan Cross has been recognized by The Journal Record as a member of its 2018 Achievers Under 40 class.


Cross, a vice president and commercial banker for Arvest in Oklahoma City, and the other honorees were recognized not just in a recent print version of The Journal Record, but an event held May 10 at Embassy Suites Oklahoma City Downtown/Medical Center.

“Ryan’s knowledge and proactive approach has made him an outstanding member of our team,” Ron Witherspoon, president and CEO of Arvest in Oklahoma City, said in Cross’ profile. “He is an excellent representation of dedication to his work and to his community, and I feel confident in Ryan’s abilities and integrity.”

Cross has worked in the banking industry since graduating from the University of Oklahoma with a finance and international business degree. He’s also currently enrolled in the Oklahoma Bankers Association Intermediate Banking School and will attend the Graduate School of Banking at Colorado as a second-year student this summer.

The profile also highlighted Cross’ work as a volunteer, especially his efforts on behalf of March of Dimes. As the 2017 chairman for the Oklahoma City March for Babies, according to his profile, Cross helped surpass the sponsorship goal of $75,000 to more than $100,000 and went over the $200,000 event goal to more than $250,000.

“My twins were born 12 weeks premature in 2005, and without the March of Dimes research on surfactant and the other lifesaving care that my twins received, they would not be alive today,” Cross said in the profile. “I continue to be proud to give back to such a great organization.”

Kudos to Cross for walking the “People helping people” walk in more ways than one!
