Each month, Secretary Husted chooses a handful of outstanding businesses that do work in a specific field. He declared April as “Investing in Your Future” Month to highlight businesses that offer financial advice and guidance to Ohioans preparing for their future. This theme was chosen because making important financial decisions can be an intimidating process and the Secretary wished to highlight institutions working to assist people and businesses in the process.

Founded in 1867, VCNB was selected for the work the bank does serving local communities through seventeen branches in eight counties by sponsoring financial literacy programs and giving monetary donations to worthy causes throughout the year.

VCNB is currently being profiled on the Secretary of State’s web page and social media. Regional Liaison Bryn Stepp participated in a brief ceremony and reception on Friday afternoon to present the bank with a certificate marking the honor.

VCNB President Ron Collins accepted the certificate on behalf of the company’s approximate 239 employees by quoting football coach Woody Hayes who said “You win with people.”

“He said ‘You win with people’ and I’ve always believed that. A lot of the people here have been with us for 20 years. Probably 25 percent of our employees have been here for 20 years or longer,” he said, gesturing to the audience of employees.
