Creating a Growth Platform

Over the past three years, Middlefield has invested in creating an infrastructure to support a bank with $1.5 billion in assets. These investments were focused on four key areas:

  • Adding talent across all levels of the organization,
  • Enhancing the company’s financial products and services.
  • Improving the ways customers interact with the Bank, and
  • Enhancing the Bank’s systems and security.

As a result of the growth platform the company has created, management believes there are significant expansion opportunities in both of its Ohio markets.
