Heartland BancCorp Opens Hilliard Branch

GAHANNA, Ohio, June 07, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Heartland BancCorp, (OTCQB:HLAN), parent company of Heartland Bank, today announced that it opened its new branch in Hilliard. Heartland leased the 2500 sf space in a new development at 3971 Main Street, in cooperation with Crawford Hoying. Global design firm Unispace worked alongside Heartland's new Distribution Strategies department and helped in the development of a colorful, inviting and modern open concept as a twist on the bank's traditional branching model. With universal bankers providing both high tech delivery and personal service, clients can blend self-service and professional guidance to choose how they would prefer to manage their finances, while still having a relationship with their community banker.

"This new branch location further expands our network and presence in Central Ohio. It's the first of a series of new locations incorporating a new look and feel, and client experience,” said G. Scott McComb, Chairman, President and CEO. "Hilliard is one of Columbus' most vibrant communities and we aim to be their community bank of choice and engage with them as we're accustomed to doing in the other communities we serve."
