Armstrong Bank recently chose Bill Shelby as market president in Muskogee. In this role, Shelby will spearhead a talented Armstrong team in Muskogee, Fort Gibson, and the surrounding communities. Daniel Miller, who previously served as Muskogee Market president, will remain in the Muskogee market as senior vice president, regional relationship banker. His new role will allow the bank to broaden its efforts to serve customers throughout Muskogee and beyond.
“Bill and Daniel are both incredible assets to Armstrong Bank and our local communities,” Armstrong Bank President Ryan Quidley said. “With Bill’s leadership in the Bank and in the community, I am confident that Bill and the rest of our outstanding team will provide a level of service in this region second to none.”

In 2002, while attending Oklahoma State University, Shelby began an internship at Armstrong’s Warner location under Executive Vice President and Chief Lending Officer Joe Perryman, Warner market president at that time.
“Bill has practically grown up in the Armstrong Bank family and culture. His promotion to market president is the result of much hard work, exceptional customer service, and a sincere appreciation of community banking,” Perryman said. “Bill has been instrumental in the rich development of customer relationships and growth in Muskogee and surrounding areas.”
