Old Fort Bank moves HQ into downtown Tiffin

The Old Fort Banking Co. has moved into its corporate headquarters to 33 E. Market St., Tiffin.

The move consolidates and relocates the bank’s accounting department, executive offices, human resource functions, marketing department and retail administration offices to a newly renovated three-floor, 8,550-square-foot downtown location, said Denise Martin, marketing officer.

“We are extremely pleased to have our headquarters located in the downtown corridor,” said President and CEO Michael C. Spragg in a news release. “We are excited about our future as a Tiffin-based company, to be a consistent employer in Seneca County and to remain deeply involved in this community.”

About 20 associates work at the Tiffin headquarters location.

“The new headquarters provides the bank with the ability to continue to grow, as the building can hold as many as 32 to 36 associates,” Martin said.

Also, she said operations-related departments such as information technology, loan operations and deposit operations have been relocated and centralized in the bank’s 13,850-square-foot Old Fort building.

Full-service financial centers continue to be operated at the new headquarters and in Old Fort.

“Bank clients will enjoy the same commitment to service they have come to know at all Old Fort Bank locations,” Martin said.

The independent bank, founded in 1916, has assets of $500 million, and operates as a community bank with a foundation of local decision making which provides client service that is reliable, responsive and competent, Martin said.

A subsidiary of Gillmor Financial Services Inc., the bank serves Allen, Greene, Hancock, Sandusky, Seneca and Wood counties with financial centers in Bettsville, Clyde, Findlay, Fostoria, Fremont, Old Fort, Tiffin and Sugarcreek Township. Old Fort operates a commercial loan production office in Lima and also has a mortgage loan production facility in Xenia. Old Fort is a recognized leader in community banking throughout the area in assisting members of the community, including local businesses and corporations.
