MERRILLVILLE – Michael E. Schrage, President and CEO of Centier Bank, is pleased to announce that Forbes® has recognized Centier Bank as the #1 bank in the state of Indiana.
Forbes has teamed with the market research firm Statista to produce their second annual “Best Banks in Each State” to gauge interest in the feedback customers gave their banks, with over 25,000 individuals surveyed.
“This accolade is a testament to the prioritization of service and culture that we provide here at Centier,” said Mike Schrage, President and CEO of Centier Bank. “We are continually recognized as a top provider in our banking services, and that really ties into the belief that we invest in our people first, who then relay first-class services to our clients.
This is the second year that Centier Bank has ranked in the top-5 of Forbes’ “Best Banks in Each State” survey. Financial institutions are graded on client satisfaction, recommendations, and other factors including trust, terms and conditions, branch services, and financial advice.
“As a true community bank, we recognize that we grow as our communities grow, and that is only supported by establishing foundational relationships with our clients and stakeholders,” continued Schrage. “We are proud of this distinction and know that, as the largest private, family-owned bank in the state, we continue to deliver the quality of service that sets us apart from other banks.”
Centier recently surpassed the $4.7 billion asset milestone and continues to grow, opening branches in Indianapolis, Michigan City, Elkhart, and Fort Wayne in 2019. With over 900 employees and 61 branches, Centier maintains its status as a Hall of Fame “Best Places to Work” institution and was recognized last year as the 10th-ranked Best Bank to Work for in the U.S.A.
