Caldwell, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our efficiency ratio continues to improve despite additional operating expenses associated with our new Powell, Ohio office that opened in September. Our recently opened Sunbury and Powell offices are well positioned to capitalize on favorable trends in the Central Ohio market and we are encouraged with the performance of these new locations. The economic landscape in both of our Ohio markets remains stable, supporting strong loan growth and performance.
