Great Plains Bank recently announced the promotion of Clint Lively to the role of Branch President for the Mangum market. Former Great Plains Bank Mangum President Robert Garton has transitioned to the role of Head of Retail but will continue to office out of the Mangum branch.
Lively joined Great Plains Bank in 2014, serving as a loan officer prior to his promotion. Before joining Great Plains Bank, Lively was the Chief Financial Officer for a health center in Lindsay, OK. In addition to his professional experience, Lively is an active member of the Mangum community. He is the former president of the Mangum Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and continues to serve the organization as a board member. He also serves on the Mangum Education Foundation Board, in addition to his past service on the Old Greer County Museum Board of Directors.
“I’m so excited to take on this new challenge and to be able to serve the people of my hometown,” comments Lively. “Robert has been a great mentor to me, and I have so much admiration for what he has done in his 26 years of service in Mangum at Great Plains. I’m looking forward to following in his footsteps and continuing to build upon the legacy of success that he has created here.”
After graduating from Mangum High School in 2005, Lively went on to earn his Bachelor’s in Finance and Accounting from Southwestern Oklahoma State University. He has also continued his education through coursework from the Oklahoma Bankers Association, Haberfeld and Associates, and PBI in Nashville. He currently lives in Mangum with his children Braxton and Kalvin.
“Clint has been an incredible asset to our bank,” says Great Plains Bank Head of Retail Robert Garton. “He’s knowledgeable and deeply devoted to his customers and community. He’s proven himself to be an extremely capable banker and manager in his time as a loan officer, so I know the future is bright under his leadership in this new role. He has a demonstrated commitment to the outstanding quality of service that Great Plains Bank is known for, so the Mangum branch is in good hands.”
