The Banker Behind Malvern National Bank


Mark Roberts, President of MNB

Malvern National Bank • 501-332-6955 •

Mark Roberts, president of Malvern National Bank, didn’t choose banking. Banking chose him.

An attorney by training, Roberts served the bank as outside legal counselor from the mid-1980s to the mid-1990s. Then, he was brought inside. And in February, he will have been president of MNB for seven years.

Roberts says he prefers the positive vibes of the banking life to that of a private practice.

“A lot of the things you deal with in the private practice of law have to do with problems people are going through,” says Roberts.

“This is a different side to helping people. It’s positive. We’re trying to help people get into a home, buy a car or start a business.”

Before he was a banker, and even before he was an attorney, Roberts first wanted to be a coach. Now, he considers himself a coach to the 135 bank employees he has the pleasure of working with at MNB. And he and his employees provide a service to their customers that is critical to community success.

“Along with your schools and your health care, your bank is like a backbone to the community,” says Roberts. “Without them, your communities could dry up… Our hometown banks are vital to the success of our community.”

    I have known Mark for many years. He is a fine individual and a great asset to our community. He is very involved in activities where young people are concerned and very supportive of our local educational system. MNB is fortunate to have him leading their institution and the Malvern community is fortunate to have him as one of our own.
