When it comes to your money, it's really all personal.
“This bank has an incredible history of service and personal relationships in our community, and I couldn’t be more honored to have the opportunity to lead the bank into our next chapter of support for our customers as they work to achieve their goals,” Gilbert said. “There are so many great things on the horizon, both for the bank and those we serve, and I’m truly excited to bring them all here to the Mountain Home community.”
With more than 25 years of community banking experience and deep roots in the Mountain Home community, Gilbert’s leadership will bring a relationships-first approach to Farmers and Merchants Bank operations in the market. She most recently served as Mountain Home Community Bank President for Arvest Bank and before that worked with Centennial Bank as Senior Vice President of Business Development.
“Sally’s integrity, experience and overwhelming sense of professionalism in every engagement easily made this the right decision for both Farmers and Merchants and those we serve in this community,” said Farmers and Merchants Bank President and CEO Brad Chambless. “No one knows how to better serve our customers in Mountain Home and our surrounding bank branches than Sally Gilbert, and it will be an honor to work with her as we continue to build on our commitment to this community for years to come.”
Gilbert, her husband Tony and three daughters, Grace, Kate and Anna, attend Real Life Church in Mountain Home. In addition to her work supporting bank customers and business leaders in Mountain Home and surrounding communities, Gilbert serves on the Board of Directors for Baxter Regional Medical Center and is a member of the Mountain Home Rotary Club. She earned her degree from Missouri State University. Gilbert and her seasoned team in Mountain Home are already working on several new services and product offerings in coordination with the broader Farmers & Merchants Bank team to continually improve both the in-person and online banking experience and create new opportunities for the Mountain Home community.
