First Security Moves Into Fort Smith

First Security Bank

Fort Smith native Zach Ledford will return to his hometown to lead operations for First Security Bank, which is opening up a downtown location in the old Town Club property at 720 Garrison Ave.

Ledford, 35, was born and raised in Fort Smith, graduated in the first four-year class from the University of Arkansas at Fort Smith, and has worked in the supply chain and financial arenas in Northwest Arkansas for the last 12 years.

“I’m excited to move back with this opportunity with First Security,” Ledford told Talk Business & Politics.

He’ll remain under the guidance of Adam Rutledge, president of Northwest Arkansas for First Security Bank. Rutledge said Fort Smith makes a lot of sense for the Searcy-based $5.3 billion financial institution.    MORE
