A message from CEO Mike Rechin
We are excited to announce that legal approvals to merge iAB Financial Bank into First Merchants Bank are now complete. Welcome to the First Merchants Bank family!
Later this year iAB Financial Bank will become First Merchants Bank, providing you with enhanced convenience, choice and expertise. You will soon benefit from larger lending limits, access to over 100 banking centers in 31 Indiana and two counties in both Illinois and Ohio, and a full range of treasury management and mobile banking tools.
We believe you will find First Merchants to be a natural extension of iAB Financial Bank; we’re already neighbors. Our companies share a commitment to responsive, personal service, long-term relationships, community involvement and Midwestern values.
Through this transition, we are committed to providing you with clear, open communication and supporting you with resources that best meet your needs. As details about the transition become available, you will receive information and communications via postal mail, website updates and email. We encourage you to visit the First Merchants website, www.firstmerchants.com frequently for the most up-to-date information.
Since 1893, First Merchants has been focused on supporting the dreams and growth of families, businesses and communities. We look forward to serving you, and welcome you to First Merchants!
Michael C. Rechin
President and CEO, First Merchants Corporation
