Michael E. Schrage, CEO and Chairman of Centier Bank, is pleased to announce Forbes® has recognized Centier Bank as the #1 bank in the state of Indiana for the second consecutive year.
Forbes conducts its second annual Best-In-State-Banks survey through market research firm Statista. Over 25,000 customers are surveyed to rate banks they have belonged to for overall satisfaction, but also considering trust, terms & conditions, branch services, digital services, and financial advice. In Indiana, only five banks were ranked.
“This recognition has once again reinforced our dedication to our clients as a true community bank,” Schrage said. “We are continually recognized as a top bank for the high quality services we provide and for our personalized, relationship-style banking. We are proud to receive this accolade as a result.”
This is the second year that Centier Bank has ranked as the #1 Best Bank in Indiana by Forbes’ “Best Banks in Each State” survey. Out of 5,117 banks in America, just 135 banks made the list. Among them, Centier placed 10th highest overall in the nation.
“As Indiana’s largest private, family-owned bank celebrating 125 years in business, it is wonderful to see Centier out-rank larger, well-known banks which operate across the country,” Schrage said. “We know that our dedication to growing and nurturing Indiana’s communities is what sets us apart."
Centier Bank is a $4.8 billion asset bank and continues to grow, having opened new branches in Fort Wayne, Elkhart, and Indianapolis in the last year. With over 900 employees and 64 branches, also holds the Indiana Chamber’s Hall of Fame status for “Best Places to Work” and was recognized last year as the 6th-ranked Best Bank to Work for in the U.S.A. by American Banker magazine.
