First-Knox to Enter Wayne County Market

February 25, 2015

Vickie A. Sant, president of First-Knox National Bank, announced the opening of a new office at 2148-G Eagle Pass in Wooster, Ohio.

“We are very excited to branch into Wayne County and the Wooster market. Our business continues to grow in this area and we felt it was time to establish a physical location” said Sant.

The Wooster Office will be a full service banking center, including mortgage and consumer lending, and will be managed by Tim Bahler.

Bahler is a 1978 graduate of Marlington High School in Alliance, Ohio, and attended Tampa College in Florida. He has been in the banking industry for over 25 years and brings with him an extensive background in lending and building client relationships.

Bahler is an active member of the Wooster Exchange Club, Masonic Lodge and Tadmor Shrine Club. He resides in Wayne County with his wife, Jill, and sons, Cameron and Evan. They have one grown son, Cullen.

Bob Boss, vice president and Holmes and Wayne County area executive, will oversee the Wooster expansion. Boss stated, “The timing was right to move into Wooster and we couldn’t be more excited. Tim is a great fit for the Wooster market. I’ve known him for quite some time and he brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience that will greatly benefit our current and future customers.”

Current First-Knox associates Darrell Lee and Tricia Scherer will transfer from the Millersburg Office to the new Wooster location. Lee is a seasoned consumer and mortgage lender and Scherer will assist with loan functions as well as manage the teller line. Two tellers will be hired to round out the staff.

Operations are expected to begin in spring 2015.
