Pennsylvania's NexTier Bank expands into Ohio with Cleveland market loan office

Another western Pennsylvania bank is dipping its toe into the crowded Northeast Ohio market.

NexTier Bank , a roughly $1.2 billion-asset bank based in Kittanning, Pa. whose roots date back to 1897, has announced the opening of a new commercial loan production office in Cleveland.

The new office, being led by senior vice president John Osberg, NexTier's recently named Cleveland market manager, marks the bank's first expansion into Ohio. The bank has 27 branches clustered along the western Pennsylvania border.

"Ohio is a natural extension of our current market and a great opportunity for NexTier," said NexTier president and CEO Clem Rosenberger. "We look forward to offering businesses in eastern Ohio the high level of service you expect from a community bank along with the vast array of commercial banking products, services and lending solutions NexTier has available."

He noted that the neighboring markets in Pennsylvania and Ohio are quite alike, making it an attractive and logical region to grow into for a bank active at the states' shared border. And bankers see opportunity to grow a platform here under Osberg, a market veteran, despite the already crowded landscape. Bob Bowell, NexTier's chief lending officer, described the region as a "hotbed of economic growth and activity.

PJ Fleck takes rebuild blueprint from Western Michigan to Minnesota

The wins this fall are a bonus for P.J. Fleck, who left Western Michigan last off-season to realize his dream of coaching at a Power 5 school in Minnesota. 

The Golden Gophers (3-2, 0-2 Big Ten) host Michigan State (4-1, 2-0) on Saturday at TCF Bank Stadium (8 p.m., BTN).

Under Fleck, Minnesota has emphasized building their culture over winning football games in Fleck's first year in Minneapolis. 

"Really, it's about the installation of a brand new culture, which is very, very difficult and very different," Fleck told reporters on a media call on Tuesday afternoon. "At Minnesota, we've had three different head coaches in three different years, so that's three different cultures in three years. For young people, at times (that can be difficult). 

"We knew that all along coming in here. It's like having three different moms and dads and having your parents go through three different divorces in three different years. It's very difficult for young people, so we want to bring that cultural sustainability, and there's always that Year 0. There's always a start to it." 

What was the first bank in the Western Area??

I know the First Bank was the first bank in the united states. But what was the first bank ever in the western area including England.

A "bank" usually means an institution which both takes deposits _and_ makes loans. Also, the "Western world" usually includes the Middle East, northeast of Constantinople/Istanbul. . У нас Вы можете купить подлинный диплом училища , а также дипломы других известных училищ.
