age: 33 | Commercial Lender | Diamond Bank
Helping people make smart financial decisions and assisting them in achieving their dreams is Clayton Wisdom’s job at Diamond Bank. He enjoys seeing small businesses and families grow and succeed. “In my line of work, I’m able to help people see their dreams come true through financial assistance,” he explains. “I meet and talk to people every day with ideas for their businesses, dream house plans and much more.”
Having a broad client base is important to Clayton. “It might seem small, but it’s a great accomplishment every time one of my current customers shares my name and information to a potential customer,” he says. “It shows that they trust me and that their experience with me was a positive one.”

When asked about his greatest personal accomplishment, Clayton says that it has to be convincing his wife, Magan, to marry him. An avid volunteer, Clayton has served on the Junior League of Texarkana Community Advisory Council for two years, volunteered time serving as a board member on Teen Court, served multiple years as a board member of the Arkansas Single Parent Scholarship Fund, and gives back to multiple community projects.
Clayton can often be found participating in outdoor activities (especially hunting and fishing) and playing with his son, Lane. Since Clayton enjoys his job as a commercial lender, he hopes to still be broadening his banking career for many years to come.
