Our Story

Since 1884 Civista Bank has provided financial solutions to generations of Ohio businesses, families, and individuals.  We're committed to developing life-long relationships built on trust, expertise, and exceptional service. 

As a $1.4 billion organization, our financial resources and commitment to be the community's trusted financial advisor enable us to serve the personal and business banking, mortgage, and wealth management needs of our community members. 

We proudly support a variety of economic, educational, cultural, and health and human service initiatives within the communities we serve.  Through both monetary support and promoting employee volunteerism, Civista Bank is dedicated to making a difference. 

While we've grown into new communities and changed our brand name along the way, we're proud to be the same bank with the same commitment to relationship banking focused on you.  Today, the bank operates 29 locations across 12 Ohio counties, including two loan production offices in Cuyahoga County.

2015 Rebranding to Civista Name
