Centier has been constructing a new branch on Franklin Street in Michigan City and is opening its third banking center in Elkhart, which will have a community room, technology bar, and free wifi. It will be Centier's 10th location in Michiana, one of its largest markets outside of its home base of Northwest Indiana.

“There is a revitalization happening in the Michiana region and we look to be part of it as we continue to invest and grow with the communities we serve,” Schrage said.

Centier has $4.4 billion in assets, more than 900 employees, and 61 branches in 11 counties across Indiana.
