President’s Message


A Personal Message from Your President

Have you ever heard the phrase “the best of both worlds”?  Most people would like to have the “best of both worlds” in many things they do or with products and services they use. In banking, that usually means getting low loan rates and fees along with high deposit rates and the latest technology from a true local bank. Many times, a person has to choose one or the other. Do I want a variety of products and services with the latest technology and possibly pay high fees, or do I want local service where I am known by my name and pay lower fees for products and services? Many people think this is a tough choice, but it doesn’t have to be.  At Greenville Federal, we offer a variety of products and services with the latest in technology and local service where people know you by name. When you choose to do all of your banking with Greenville Federal, you get the “best of both worlds”. A wide variety of products and services with the latest in technology AND that local hometown bank with personal service where we know you by name.

Whether it’s GF FREE on-line banking and Bill-Pay or FREE GF Mobile banking or GF FREE Checking + Gift, we offer many products and services free of charge and with the latest technology. Also, at Greenville Federal, we service all of our loans and deposits right here at our Main Office in Greenville, Ohio. We don’t sell your loan and have you send your payments to another county or state. We want to service your loan locally where if there is a problem, you will have a local person working with you.
