Arkansas Bank Congratulates CFO on Forty Under 40 Achievement

Chambers Bank Congratulates Chief Financial Officer on Forty Under 40 Honor

CFO Landi Mkhize

Chambers Bank, with locations throughout Arkansas, enthusiastically congratulates chief financial officer (CFO), Landi Mkhize, on recently being named to the Northwest Arkansas Business Journal’s (NABJ) 21st edition of Forty Under 40.

Beginning in 1997, the journal has annually honored 40 outstanding professionals under the age of 40 who live and work in the six-county coverage area of Benton, Washington, Carroll, Madison, Sebastian and Crawford counties, according to the journal. The 2017 class was chosen from more than 100 nominations, representing a variety of business industries in the for-profit and nonprofit sectors.

Mkhize was born and raised in Johannesburg, South Africa, and moved to Arkansas in 2001 for college. He later accepted a position with the Arkansas State Bank Department and traveled the state, where he witnessed economic conditions worsen.

"It was trial by fire in a stressful period, and it was tough watching the people we examined," Mkhize said, according to the NWABJ article. In 2013, as the economy began to improve, Mkhize was hired by Chambers Bank as a controller and was subsequently promoted to CFO.

Mkhize teaches financial literacy and is involved with Junior Achievement of Northwest Arkansas. Living in South Africa during the apartheid, Mkhize attributes Nelson Mandela on affecting his life and perceptions.

"Mandela's reconciliation and the way he treated everyone had a big impact on my life," he said, according to the NWABJ article.

Chambers Bank was established in 1930 and has since expanded to 18 locations throughout the state.
