Century National Bank announced the launch of its Energy Banking Team. The team is made up of Century Bankers qualified to provide financial guidance to customers being impacted by the emergence of Utica Shale Development in eastern Ohio.

Jody Spencer, vice president and Trust officer, understands how complicated and overwhelming it can be to sort out the financial options facing those with oil and gas involvement.

"We know that there is a lot of information being disseminated, but we approach the situation a little differently than most. We start with our customers' end goal in-mind, and work to create a plan that will ensure they arrive at their goal. In many cases, we're talking about financial security for multiple generations," Spencer said.

Spencer along with Chairman Tom Lyall; President and CEO Pat Nash; Senior Vice President Jim Blythe; and Vice Presidents, Jeff Jordan, Janice Hutchison, and Beccy Porteus make up the Energy Team. Each member has 25 years, or more, of experience serving customers. They continue to keep up-to-date on all of the latest in the area's Utica Shale Development.

For questions that arise outside the realm of banking, Century's Energy Banking Team partners with local experts, including attorneys and accountants. This provides Century customers with a comprehensive solution to their individual situation from beginning to end.

Members of the Energy Banking Team can be reached by calling 800-321-7061 or 740-454-2521, visiting CenturyNationalBank.com, or by visiting one of Century's 14 Banking Centers. The bank's locations are throughout six Eastern Ohio counties including Athens, Coshocton, Hocking, Muskingum, Perry and Tuscarawas. In addition to these six counties, Noble and Guernsey counties are now being served by the bank.

Century National Bank has fourteen offices across six counties and is one of the eleven Ohio community banks that make up The Park National Corporation. Member FDIC. Equal Housing Lender.
