History of ERIEBANK
Fueled by the desire to return to the personalized banking of old, ERIEBANK opened its doors in August 2005 with a sole employee, David Zimmer, an Erie native with then more than 20 years of banking experience. One year later, the first full-service community banking office was open and by September 2007, the bank had grown out of its leased space and built its first freestanding building on Asbury Road, which was designed to feature the community of Erie through the new-concept banking center style that is now found in the majority of ERIEBANK locations.
Over the next several years, the bank expanded by building four additional Erie County locations, two in Crawford County, and one in Warren County. In March of 2016, CNB Financial Corporation (NASDAQ: CCNE) entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Lake National Bank in Lake County, Ohio. At a special meeting held on May 6, 2016, the shareholders of Lake National Bank approved the merger and announced that effective July 15, 2016, Lake National Bank would operate as ERIEBANK, division of CNB Bank.
In February 2017, ERIEBANK expanded into Ashtabula County with a new location, and in 2022 it expanded into Cuyahoga County, totaling the number of community offices to twelve in six counties.
