First Community Bank has announced that Laura Nix has joined the bank as senior vice president, treasury management director. Nix has nearly 20 years of experience in the banking industry. In her new position, Nix will direct and manage the bank’s expansion of treasury management products and services for our current and future commercial customers as the bank expands into new markets. She will manage a team of community bankers focused on providing innovative solutions for the bank’s business customers.
“After spending most of my life working in Little Rock and living outside of the city, there is something very special about being a part of a smaller tight-knit community. It’s a place where I can form relationships that carry over into my everyday life,” said Nix, “The bank’s motto, ‘where community comes first,’ is exactly what I feel when I step through the doors in the morning. Just as I started my career in community banking back in 1995, I plan to conclude my career the same way.”
Nix earned her bachelor’s degree in business administration with an emphasis in marketing from Southern Arkansas University in Magnolia, Arkansas, where she played volleyball for four years. She received her certified treasury professional designation in 2001. Between 2011 and 2019, she worked in the non-profit industry. She has been previously involved with charitable groups such as Habitat for Humanity, the American Red Cross, and First Tee, a youth development organization in Central Arkansas that uses the game of golf to impact the lives of area children.
She and her husband, Heath, have been together for 28 years and have three sons: Colten (24), Chase (24), and Cord (13). In her free time, she enjoys painting and interior design, both skills she plans to put to use at their new house in Batesville.
“I am so pleased to have Laura join our team to head our treasury management efforts,” said Gene Crawford, senior vice president, director of non-interest income. “She will work to enhance and establish new products and services within treasury management to better assist our business customers with managing their cash flow. As an experienced banker, she will provide invaluable expertise and insightful solutions for our customers.”
