Consumers National Bank acquires two branches from CFBank
MINERVA – Consumers National Bank has completed its acquisition of two branches from CFBank, National Association in Calcutta and Wellsville. The agreement includes land, buildings and other associated assets of the two branches, approximately $100 million in deposits, and certain loans and other interest earning assets. In addition, the staff of both branches were retained as employees of Consumers National Bank. The branches will open for business Monday as the 21st and 22nd locations in Consumers National Bank’s six-county network.
“The acquisition of these branches strengthens our competitive position in Columbiana County and complements our four Jefferson County locations. These locations will house commercial and mortgage lenders and will provide a full range of consumer and business services. We are pleased that Rebecca Tolson and her outstanding retail banking team in Wellsville and Calcutta have joined us in our efforts to provide a consultativebanking approach to the region’s consumer, small business, and agricultural communities. They will help us make a difference in southern Columbiana County. Further, we look forward to becoming a contributing member of the Wellsville, Calcutta and surrounding communities. For well over a century CFBank has served the area with a community-based banking philosophy. We intend to capitalize and expand on that tradition,” said Ralph J. Lober II, Consumers’ President and CEO.
With this completed acquisition, Consumers total assets are approximately $930 million, and its total deposits are approximately $827 million. The bank’s five Columbiana County offices will hold $259 million in deposits, approximately 14% of the $1.8 billion deposit market as reported in the June 2020 FDIC Summary of Deposits.
