Company history/ How has your company changed over the years? Heartland Bank has a proud history of cultivating community relationships as its roots date back to the Croton Bank, founded in a small Licking County farming community – Croton, Ohio. Local farmers, cultivating crops for a living, kept their banking local, thus building neighborhood financial relationships and strengthening this first branch which would later be known as Heartland Bank. Tiney M. McComb formed Heartland BancCorp in 1988 and shortly thereafter, purchased shares of Croton Bank and changed the name to Heartland Bank. Along with branch expansions in Pickerington in 2015 and Hilliard in 2016, then Clintonville in 2017 and Upper Arlington in 2019, Heartland Bank built a new Corporate Center in Whitehall, OH - a 60,000-square-foot state-of-the-art collaboration/work space to house the growing enterprise. As of April 7, 2020, Heartland Bank completed the acquisition of Victory Community Bank. This merger expands the presence of Heartland Bank into the Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati market areas complimenting Heartland's exciting Central Ohio footprint.
How do you see your company growing in the future? Heartland Bank continues to grow and expand our Agricultural and Banking footprint throughout the state and surrounding states. We continue to hire top notch employees that are looking to make a difference in the Community.
Interesting tidbits about your business: Heartland Bank continues to offer long term fixed rate financing as a Preferred Lender with the Farm Service Agency, as well as other partnerships throughout the banking sector.
How has OABA helped your business or the agribusiness industry? OABA has allowed for many introductions and networking possibilities for Heartland Bank.
Anything else you would like to share: Heartland Bank’s Agribusiness Department looks forward to our continued partnership and building a lasting relationship. We value OABA and hope to continue to give back to the Ag Community through sound financial advice/products/services and networking connections.
