The Commercial Observer, a leading commercial real estate publication, has recognized four leaders from Bank of the Ozarks’ Real Estate Specialties Group (RESG) among the 50 most important figures of commercial real estate finance.
This marks the second year in a row that Bank of the Ozarks team members have been featured in this list.
We congratulate RESG Chief Operating Officer Brannon Hamblen and three Managing Directors of Originations Greg Newman, Tucker Hughes and Richard Smith for this well-deserved achievement.
