Our Team Members. The Bear State Difference.
Name: Julie Coe, VP and Fair Lending Manager
Location: Jonesboro Main Bank
Number of Years in Banking: 14 years with Bear State, 26 years total, so I started when I was 5!
Family Members: Harvey (AKA Butch) my wonderful husband of 7 years, and we have the most spoiled dog in the world named Debo. He’s a Lab.
Community Involvement: I volunteer through the bank, participating in United Way Day of Caring, and the Safe Banking for Seniors program.
Passions/Hobbies: I’m a history buff, so most of my hobbies go along with my love of history. I like to travel to historical places and national parks. I like antiques, old movies and cooking, especially baking.
Bear State Core Value that Resonates the Loudest? Advocacy and Collaboration. My responsibilities cover fair lending and consumer protection, so I’m acting as an advocate for the bank’s customers. And I communicate almost daily with several of the bank’s business lines, so collaboration is crucial in helping me create an exceptional banking experience for our customers.
