Who We Are

The story of FirstMerit Bank is not about buildings or bottom lines. It is about people – the generations of hard-working, talented men and women who have made this institution what it is today. Our business has been built by skilled professionals who provide an exceptional level of service for every customer, from the young couple opening a savings account for their child’s education to the corporation in need of a strong lending partner to fund multimillion-dollar development projects.


Who are we?

Simply, we are a bank that truly cares about the customers and communities that continue to put their trust in us.


Today, as an industry leader with branches across the Midwest, we deliver superior lending strength; a full array of financial products and services that rival those of national banks; innovative banking solutions; and the ability to meet the sophisticated needs of our customers. But as we’ve grown into the diversified financial services company we are today, we have never lost sight of our philosophy to provide personal service and stay actively involved in bettering our communities.
