Mid Penn unveils new structure, regional presidents
Mid Penn Bank has divvied up its growing footprint into four regions and appointed new leaders to oversee them.
Over the last few years, the Millersburg-based bank has extended its reach into Lancaster County and purchased a bank in western Pennsylvania, the former Scottdale Bank & Trust Co.
In 2015 Mid Penn absorbed Minersville-based Phoenix Bancorp Inc., parent of Miners Bank, which had branches in Schuylkill and Luzerne counties.
The bank, which now has 29 branches and $1.4 billion in assets, said its goal is to develop strategies designed to meet the needs of customers in each of the regions it serves.
"This structure will allow us to provide better and faster service to our customers," Rory G. Ritrievi, Mid Penn's president and CEO, said in a statement. "Having these leaders in each of our geographical areas will allow us to provide premiere customer service across the state of Pennsylvania."
The four regions and their new presidents, all former commercial lenders, are:
- The Capital region, including lower Dauphin County and eastern Cumberland County, headed by Heather Hall, who has been with Mid Penn since 2016.
- The Northern region, including upper Dauphin County, as well as Schuylkill, Luzerne and Northumberland counties, headed by Mark Ketch, who has been with Mid Penn since 2016.
- The Lancaster region, headed by Joan Dickinson, with Mid Penn since 2013.
- The Scottdale region, covering Fayette and Westmoreland counties, headed by Alex Kauffman, with Mid Penn since 2012.
Mid Penn is in the process of buying a Philadelphia-area bank, First Priority Financial Corp. Its territory in Berks, Bucks, Chester and Montgomery counties will be divided into at least two regions, according to Mid Penn spokesperson Brittany Zolko.
