Message From Mike
Centier is the largest, privately-owned, independent bank in Indiana. Our “Not for Sale” promise is my personal commitment to preserving community banking and remaining independently owned and operated for generations to come.
In 2013, Centier was named the #4 Best Bank to Work For in the USA by the national banking publication “American Banker.” For the seventh year in a row, Centier was named one of Indiana’s top ten Best Places to Work in the state.
The Bank experienced records earnings of $27.8 million in 2013, and increased Total Assets to over $2.3 billion. In 2014, we look forward to new expansions with the opening of offices in Carmel, Mishawaka, Lafayette, and West Lafayette. There will be new service enhancements including: Mobile check deposit; person-to-person payments; online account opening; Sunday Call Center hours; and increased Social Media applications.
As we prepare for our 120th anniversary, we reflect on our business legacy, a reminder of how far we have come while supporting families and growing business in our communities. Centier’s Culture of Values (Integrity, Respect, Friendship, Caring, Loyalty) and our common cause to “Preserve Indiana’s Largest, Family-Owned, Private Bank” will leave a Legacy for many generations to come.
Thank you for your continued loyalty and support.
Michael E. Schrage
President & Chairman of the Board
