Middlefield Banc Corp. in Middlefield, Ohio, is preparing for its next CEO.
The $1.8 billion-asset company said in a press release that Ronald Zimmerly Jr. will succeed James Heslop II on Dec. 31. Heslop, who is retiring, will also step down from the board.
The board will be reduced to 12 directors.
“Ron is a proven leader who brings over 35 years of experience as an active member of the Ohio community banking industry,” William Skidmore, the company’s chairman, said in the release.
Zimmerly joined Middlefield as president after last year’s acquisition of Liberty Bancshares, where he was president and CEO.
