Our Arkansas Banking Background
Metropolitan National Bank opened in 1970 to serve customers in southwest Little Rock and since that time has experienced tremendous growth unparalleled by other Little Rock banks. In 1983, Doyle Rogers, a developer known for landmarks such as the Excelsior Hotel and the Statehouse Convention Center, became Chairman and principal owner of the bank. In January 1985, Lunsford W. Bridges joined the bank as President and Chief Executive Officer. Bridges continues in that position today.
Arkansas owned and operated, Metropolitan offers an extensive line of consumer and commercial products, while maintaining the quality personal service it’s known for across the area.
