Jack Kenkel
Board Member
Heartland BancCorp and Heartland Bank

Thank you - for making this transition with us, for trusting in our strategic plan, for realizing that we are bound by our community and our family ties can now include a partner from a neighboring market area. My family is proud to take this next step, and we are excited for you to follow us in this journey. You’ll still find my son, John, at the Ft. Mitchell branch, having recently been named Heartland’s Manager of Residential Mortgage Origination for Northern Kentucky.

There will be some changes, but you will have top-notch banking professionals guiding you along the way. I am confident that you will appreciate the new products and services that will now be available to you as a Heartland Bank client. I am honored to represent you on the boards of Heartland Bank and Heartland BancCorp. Please remember, my door is always open for whatever you may need.


About Heartland Bank

Heartland Bank has a proud history of cultivating community relationships as its roots date back to the Croton Bank, founded in a small Licking County farming community – Croton, Ohio. Local farmers, cultivating crops for a living, kept their banking local, thus building neighborhood financial relationships and strengthening this first branch which would later be known as Heartland Bank.

Tiney M. McComb formed Heartland BancCorp in 1988 and shortly thereafter, purchased shares of Croton Bank and changed the name to Heartland Bank. Tiney faithfully served as President for nearly 20 years and guided Heartland Bank to $530 million in assets before retiring in 2009. He handed over the reins as Chief Executive Officer to his son, Gregory Scott McComb, who had already become President in 2008.

In 2011, just before Tiney’s death in 2012 as a result of cancer, Scott became Chairman of the Board. While Heartland Bank is indeed proud of its past, we are even more excited about the future. As the dramatic consolidation among financial institutions continues, Heartland Bank is clearly emerging as a premier community bank. Along with branch expansions in Pickerington in 2015 and Hilliard in 2016, then Clintonville in 2017 and Upper Arlington in 2019, Heartland Bank also built a new Corporate Center in Whitehall, OH - a 60,000-square-foot state-of-the-art collaboration/work space to house our growing enterprise.

Recently, as of April 7, 2020, Heartland Bank completed the acquisition of Victory Community Bank. This merger expands the presence of Heartland Bank into the Northern Kentucky and Cincinnati market areas complimenting Heartland’s existing Central Ohio footprint.
