CSB Garners Recognition

UPPER SANDUSKY–In a recent issue of American Banker magazine ranking the top performing community banks and thrifts according to three-year average return on equity (ROE), Commercial Bancshares, Inc. ranked 79th nationally.

The listing, which included exchange-traded community banks and thrifts with less than $2 billion in assets, reflected the top 200 of the 851 institutions meeting the ranking’s criteria.

“I would like to thank our shareholders, directors, and employees for helping us to achieve this ranking and please consider joining our shareholder family,” stated Robert Beach, President and CEO of the company.
