Consumers Bank Sees Substantial Deposit Growth: FDIC Survey

MINERVA, Ohio – Consumers National Bank experienced substantial deposit growth during the 12-month period ended June 30, according to the annual deposit survey conducted by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp.

Within the bank’s five-county market area of Carroll, Columbiana, Jefferson, Stark and Summit counties, Consumers’ deposit market share increased 0.47% to 2.93%, moving the bank from eight to seventh position among 31 financial institutions.

In each of the five counties, the bank’s deposit balances grew at a faster rate than the market, the survey found.

Total deposits in the five-county region increased to $30.2 billion, a 2.4% increase over the 2021 report. Consumers National Bank’s total deposits increased 21.9% over the same period.

Excluding deposits acquired in the purchase of two branches in Columbiana County, the bank’s deposit growth was approximately 8.2% or 3.4 times the market’s growth rate. The bank’s total deposits were $886.5 million as of its fiscal year end on June 30, according to the survey.
 
“The bank’s strategic plan and business development efforts resulted in faster growth than that experienced in each of the counties in which we operate,” said Ralph J. Lober II, president and CEO. “Our growth and increased market share are a result of our success in building new retail and commercial relationships and of each community’s acceptance of the community bank business model and message. More individuals and businesses understand the impact community banks can have on the local economy.”
