Tanya Carter James, MBA

Vice President & Private Banking Advisor

Arvest Bank

At a young age, I remember being told learning and growing are like twin sides of a coin. Both sides are tantamount to the coin’s potential. I earned my position by taking the initiative to learn and grow in previous management positions, while always saying “yes” to special projects. Each role has opened special project opportunities that augmented my growth. A people-centered banker, I work exclusively with physicians, dentists and high net worth individuals as their single point of contact providing a financial concierge service for mortgages, consumer loans and accounts.
