RCB Bank announces new hire, customer promotions

EDMOND — RCB Bank recently added Larry W. McCorkell to its Edmond staff as assistant vice president of Consumer Lending.

“We are extremely happy to have Larry join our expanding team in Edmond,” said RCB Bank Edmond President Jim Gray. “With our upcoming expansion of three new RCB locations, he is a welcome addition!”

McCorkell joined RCB Bank from Citizens Bank of Edmond in April after the announcement of RCB Bank’s expansion in the Edmond community. On June 29, RCB Bank will open three new branches in Edmond, at which time McCorkell will move into the new Coffee Creek branch at 855 W. Covell.

“After meeting the RCB Bank team and learning about the history of the company, I am honored to accept this position,” McCorkell said. “This is a company that was started during the Great Depression and has thrived ever since because of the morals and values that it follows. RCB Bank is truly a community bank whose main focus is to build lifelong relationships, and give the best customer service to everyone who walks through the door.”

With three years’ experience as a teller and personal banker, what McCorkell enjoys most about his job are the people.

“I enjoy interacting with customers and getting to know them personally so that I can meet their needs to the best of my abilities,” McCorkell said. “I am extremely excited to be entering a position with RCB that allows me to meet a large array of people and to get to know each and every one of them.”

A self-proclaimed OKC Thunder Super fan, McCorkell watched every game last season and has only missed two this season — but for good reasons. One was his wedding, the other his honeymoon. He grew up in Grove. He is newly married to Mollye McCorkell.

RCB Bank’s expansion plans include three existing Citizens Bank of Edmond facilities that will be opened as RCB Bank offices June 29. In addition to the new branches, RCB Bank will be adding up to 25 positions to help staff the new locations.

“We are very excited about expanding our footprint in the Edmond market,” said Jim Gray, RCB Bank Edmond President. “In 2012 we moved into our new building at the corner of Edmond Road and Kelly Avenue, which provided us much needed exposure. With the addition of the three new branches, RCB Bank will achieve our desire to increase our market presence by expanding into other quadrants of the Edmond community.”

With the expansion, RCB Bank has a banking network of 33 locations across Oklahoma and extending into Kansas and assets of $2.1 billion. The additional Edmond branches will make it easier for customers to access banking staff and services. RCB Bank also offers online and mobile banking with apps for iPhones, iPads and Android devices, including mobile check deposit for approved customers.

RCB Bank is offering several promotions available at the Edmond, Oklahoma City metro area and Stillwater locations in conjunction with the new branch openings. All new my CashBack checking accounts opened through the end of this year will earn four times the rewards when qualifications are met. That’s 40 cents every time a customer swipes their debit card for purchases of $10 and above. The bank is also giving away a brand new Honda Civic CNG vehicle, which is a promotion that kicks off in June.

Also, RCB Bank has teamed up with KFOR Channel 4 to give away $1,000 a day to help residents pay their mortgage. Prizes already have been given to Jennifer Armijo of Yukon and Ashley Sadeghi of The Village. Watch KFOR nightly at 10 p.m. for a chance to win.

  • Dr. Fielding’s variance denied by close vote

    Reverse-angle parking will continue at the 13 N. University Drive office of Dr. Brad Fielding. The Edmond City Council rejected a variance request by the local optometrist to end the city’s pilot project in front of his medical facility.
    Councilman Nick Massey and Councilwoman Victoria Caldwell supported Fielding’s variance request that was dismissed in a 3-2 vote.
    Four parking lines were striped late last year at Fielding’s business after the city opened new bicycle lanes along University. The city cites the safety for bicyclists and motorists who traditionally depart while backing into traffic as the main reasons for introducing reverse-angle parking.

  • jc_TOUCH THE CLOUDS.jpg OSBI grounds voted locale for new sculpture

    City staff is working toward an agreement with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation Lab to place the “Touch the Clouds” bronze sculpture on the OSBI grounds on Second Street. The City of Edmond would retain ownership of the artwork.
    The Edmond City Council voted 4-1 this week to allow city staff to negotiate the agreement as soon as possible. Mayor Charles Lamb voted against pursuing the agreement.
    City Councilwoman Victoria Caldwell said she was initially interested in placing the sculpture near the Smith House because of it’s proximity to state Highway 66.

  • Watch China for the next economic trigger

    For my male readers out there, remember back to your teens and 20s when one of the primary goals was getting a date and finding a girlfriend? Oh come on! You can admit it.  Well imagine how it would have complicated matters if no woman would give you a second thought if you didn’t own property. No, not that old beat up car you drove and sometimes slept in. I mean real property, as in a house.
