Middlefield Banc Corp.
Profile: Emerald Bank
Bank where it feels good to you, not your banker.
A shared philosophy of customer respect, friendliness, and professionalism has brought Emerald Bank and The Middlefield Banc Corp together. Both banks strongly believe customer loyalty is borne out of the proper treatment of customers and caring for each as an individual.
As a result, a new alliance was formed in April 2007 when The Middlefield Banc Corp acquired Emerald Bank to form a stronger union with expanded capability, enhanced customer service and improved technology. Emerald Bank will continue to operate as a separate banking subsidiary of Middlefield, retaining the Emerald Bank name. Emerald Bank’s Dublin location will continue to remain a strong focal point of the community, fulfilling a principle important to both financial partners.
Thomas G. Caldwell, Middlefield’s President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, “We are pleased with the strategic acquisition of Emerald Bank. The Dublin, Ohio market is one of the most robust in the state and nicely compliments our existing northeastern Ohio franchise. We anticipate adding commercial bankers over the next year to effectively serve the needs of consumers and small businesses in Emerald Bank’s market.”
