National City Corp. said Wednesday it has completed the integration of its six Ohio banks into one unit.
William E. MacDonald 3d, chief executive officer of National City Bank in Cleveland, remains president and CEO of the merged Ohio bank. In addition, Gary A. Glaser, who was president and CEO of National City Bank of Columbus, will now serve as chairman of the merged bank as well as president of the Central Ohio region.
Mr. Glaser, who remains in Columbus, said that although he is taking on more statewide duties, his primary focus will stay with National City's central Ohio market.
The $54.7 billion-asset parent company said the merged Ohio bank has the largest market share in the state: $15.4 billion of deposits or 11.2% of deposits statewide.
The consolidation gives National City customers access to their accounts at any Ohio-based National City branch, something they could not do when the company was divided into separate regional subsidiaries.
