With over 60 locations, more than 900 associates, and growing beyond $4.4 billion in assets, Centier Bank is a prime example of the American dream at work. Founded in 1895 by Henry Schrage, Centier has grown to become Indiana’s largest private family-owned bank. While this growth has allowed Centier to serve a large portion of the state’s population, they still focus on providing warm, personalized service to every customer.
Along with their family banking philosophy, Centier is committed to facilitating the growth of Indiana businesses. Centier also boasts a “Not for Sale” promise, which guarantees the bank to remain family-owned and operated by the Schrage Family for generations to come. “Our community focus and ‘Not for Sale’ promise continue to resonate with more people, businesses and communities in the state of Indiana,” says current President and Chairman Michael E. Schrage. “The foundation of our ‘Not for Sale’ promise is our commitment to personalized service excellence and our family legacy.”
For these reasons, we are proud to announce that Centier Bank will be attending Made in America 2019.
“I’m thrilled to take part in a convention dedicated to supporting local manufacturing companies, which are the foundations of many of our communities and families,” said Olivia McGuire, VP of Commercial Lending for Centier Bank, “I’m proud to have strong manufacturing family ties and to be able to use this as an advantage to partner with local manufacturers. I want to continue to help grow the community that is Made in America!”
Centier’s “Not for Sale” promise also allows the bank to stay focused on providing a great working environment for its associates. The company was ranked the #1 Best Bank to Work For in Indiana by American Banker Magazine in 2018 and ranked 10th nationwide. It is one of 19 companies to earn Hall of Fame status among Best Places to Work with the Indiana Chamber of Commerce.
Their success is projected to continue throughout 2019, wherein they plan to open more branches and a new office in downtown Indianapolis. We are excited to meet the minds behind Centier’s accomplishments at Made in America 2019.
