Heartland BanCorp in Whitehall, Ohio, has added the state’s lieutenant governor to its board.
The company said in a press release that Jon Husted became a director on May 17. He joined the $1.4 billion-asset bank’s board in March.
Husted “brings an enormous amount of knowledge, relationships and experience that will be beneficial to the board as we continue to grow our franchise throughout Ohio,” Scott McComb, Heartland’s chairman, president and CEO, said in the release.
“His calculation and strategic decision-making skills complement our already diverse and accomplished board,” McComb added.
“Heartland is a great community bank, and I look forward to adding value to the way they serve the small businesses and families that count on them for their financial service needs,” Husted, a Republican who is running for reelections, said in the release.
