, a bank holding company headed by his college friend John Allison.
Directors were paid between $18,500 and $104,175 (but generally toward the lower end last year depending on attendance and committee duties, plus $29,420 in stock, according to the annual proxy statement.
Since leaving office, Beebe also has landed a spot on the Tyson Foods board and is of counsel to the Roberts Law Firm

son. I was told he's no longer with the firm.
