Seated around a kitchen table, Tom Bennett III shared
his dream to open another bank with his parents, Tom, Jr., and Sue, and a group
of veteran bankers.Supported by over
200 of Oklahoma’s leading families, First Oklahoma Bank started in 2009 with Thomas
E. Bennett Jr. as Chairman of the Board and Co-CEO and Thomas E. Bennett III as
President and Co-CEO. Since then, the bank has grown to about 100 employees
with a new headquarters in Jenks and locations in midtown Tulsa and Glencoe.
As of Dec. 31, 2015, First Oklahoma Bank had become
the 34th largest bank headquartered in Oklahoma out of 212. We are
the 7th largest bank headquartered in Tulsa County.
