First Commonwealth Financial (FCF) in Indiana, Pa., is bringing its corporate banking business to Ohio.
The $6.2 billion-asset bank is opening a business center in Cleveland that will focus on commercial real estate lending, commercial and industrial lending, treasury management and customized corporate banking solutions.
The Cleveland Business Center is expected to open in early April, according to the Pittsburgh Business Times. It will be headed by John Osberg, who is currently a senior vice president and senior corporate banker at First Commonwealth. Osberg has roughly 15 years of experience in the region serving middle-market, large corporate and commercial real estate clients.
"We believe our relationship-based banking model, combined with a comprehensive menu of corporate banking solutions, will be a natural fit in northeast Ohio," Stephen Cobain, executive vice president of corporate banking at First Commonwealth, said in a prepared statement to the Pittsburgh Business Times.
