Premier Financial Corp. Named to Piper Sandler List

DEFIANCE, Ohio – Premier Financial Corp. has been named to the Piper Sandler Sm-All Stars Class of 2023, a list of the 31 top-performing small-cap banks and thrifts in the country.

To earn Sm-All Star status, companies needed to have a market cap below $2.5 billion as of Sept. 15, 2023, and clear numerous hurdles related to growth, profitability, credit quality and capital strength. 

Premier is one of 31 banking institutions, just 9% of all banks screened, that met Piper Sandler’s criteria for inclusion in the Sm-All Stars Class of 2023, a news release states.

“We are honored to be named to the Sm-All Stars Class of 2023. This recognition is a testament to the outstanding work our team has done in a difficult environment,” said Gary Small, president and CEO of Premier Financial Corp. “Our results are indicative of our associates’ daily dedication, passion and commitment to providing the best in community banking to all of our stakeholders.”
