Sutton Bank recently received regulatory approval to change its Tiffin location to a full-service banking office, and has chosen Oct. 9 as the official reopening date. The bank has been operating in Tiffin at 719 W. Market St. as a commercial lending office since June 2009.
Sutton Bank was established in 1878 by Attica attorney Lester Sutton, making it one of the oldest Seneca County-based financial institutions in operation. Sutton Bank remains an independent, community bank, with local ownership. It has consistently been ranked one of the top small business and agricultural lenders in Ohio, as reported by the U.S. Small Business Administration.
Sutton Bank's retail account offerings are to be available through its Tiffin office. The office is staffed by Dana Bennett, market manager and commercial lender; Mark Dircksen, business banker and commercial lender; Gail Zoeller, officer manager; and Tia Angelo and Brianne Schock, customer service representatives. It is open 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m. weekdays.
Sutton Bank is a $350 million financial institution with headquarters in Attica. It also operates branches in Willard, New London, Ashland and Mansfield.
