ROWND JOINS FIRST COMMUNITY FINANCIAL SERVICES

December 22, 2023

First Community Financial Services, operating within First Community Bank, proudly announces the appointment of Eric Rownd as vice president, financial advisor. Based at the 11 Prospect Court office in Cabot, Arkansas, Rownd will extend his services to the Little Rock and Conway markets.

Expressing his enthusiasm, Rownd stated, “The bank model for financial advising always made sense to me. To make the shift, it had to be a bank that prioritizes clients, values its people, and fosters a family-like environment. First Community Bank embodies these principles, and joining them feels like coming home. I am thrilled to be part of First Community Bank.”

Rownd specializes in financial planning, investment management, as well as retirement, legacy and tax planning. With a bachelor’s degree in business management from the University of Arkansas at Little Rock and 16 years of experience in the financial industry, he holds series 7 and 66 licenses through LPL Financial, insurance licensures, and is currently licensed in 12 states.

Eric’s family includes his wife, Jennifer, and three children, Madison, William, and Parker, along with their golden retriever, Cooper. Rownd's involvement in local youth sports reflects his commitment to his children's interests. By coaching baseball and softball, serving on boards, and taking on leadership roles, he actively supports and engages with their passions, fostering a sense of community and teamwork.

Outside of his community involvement, Rownd enjoys a range of hobbies such as golf, kayaking, hiking, pickleball, fishing, and often spending quality lake days with his family—all while proudly supporting the Arkansas Razorbacks.

David Wood, executive vice president, market president for the Searcy and Cabot regions of First Community Bank, said, "We are delighted to welcome Eric aboard, and I eagerly anticipate his valuable contributions to enhancing the financial well-being of our customers and the community at large. His extensive experience and commitment align seamlessly with our dedication to delivering exceptional service and fostering financial prosperity for our clients and the communities we serve.”

The First Community Financial Services office on Prospect Court in Cabot is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
