Jeff Stratton new Findlay VP/Business Development Officer

FINDLAY – Jeff Stratton has joined Commercial Savings Bank in Findlay as VP/Business Development Officer.

A Bluffton native, Stratton has nearly 10 years of banking experience in the area, with eight of those years spent in commercial lending.   He is a graduate of Bluffton High School and earned his bachelor’s degree in finance from Miami University.

Jeff_Websize-1“I worked for my family’s business (Stratton Greenhouse) for most of my life,” he said. “ I have been on the other side of the desk as the business person working with a banker.   I think that gives me a unique perspective as a commercial lender.”

Stratton and his wife, a high school math teacher, live in Bluffton. They have two children and are expecting their third before year’s end.   He is active in both the Bluffton and Findlay area teaching Sunday school at his church in Bluffton, and being a member of Rotary Club, treasurer for Hancock Youth Leadership Alumni Association and on the board of the Children’s Museum in Findlay.

Stratton is looking forward to working with CSB clients.

“In the Findlay market there is a little bit of everything—big and small clients.   It’s ‘mom and pop’ business meets big industrial clients,” he said. “People are always wanting to do something new and that’s fun.   Findlay is still a small enough town that it matters how well you do your job and that is important to me as well.”

Stratton can be reached at the 1660 Tiffin Avenue branch in Findlay, by calling 419-423-3057 or emailing
