CANFIELD, Ohio – Farmers National Banc Corp. announced March 7 the addition of market presidents and changes to its credit and commercial lending teams. These additions to the bank’s leadership were prompted by Farmers’ growth and expansion into new markets, the company said.

Farmers also named the following market presidents: Andrew Estock as market president of Southern Mahoning Valley, Michael Mudrak as market president of Cleveland, Dallas Robinson as market president of Western Ohio, and Shawn Pompelia as market president of Northern Mahoning Valley.
To manage continued commercial growth in new and existing markets, Farmers said it has implemented regional commercial credit teams.
