Columbus, Ohio – (March 23, 2021) –
Jenny Saunders, president of FCBank, a division of CNB, has been named the
Ohio Bankers League (OBL) Government Relations Council chair for a two-year term. The OBL’s Government Relations Council is a panel of bankers that sets governmental advocacy priorities for the Ohio banking industry.
“It’s a privilege to represent Ohio’s bankers and support policy and advocacy efforts that are important to the advancement of the banking industry in our state,” said Saunders. “OBL serves as a critical convenor and creator of resources and knowledge for the industry and the Government Relations Council works diligently to make sure bankers’ voices are heard.”
A native of St. Mary’s, Ohio, Saunders assumed her role as president for the Ohio-based division of Pennsylvania’s CNB Bank in October 2017.

Headquartered in Worthington, Ohio, FCBank has branch offices in Grandview, Bucyrus, Cardington, Fredericktown and Shiloh.
“We are excited that Jenny will be leading our Government Relations Council for the next two years,” said OBL Senior Vice President of Member & External Relations Evan Kleymeyer. “She is a well-known political advocate both locally and nationally and will bring great experience to our political advocacy efforts. We look forward to continued success promoting a safe, strong, and diverse banking industry in the state of Ohio under Jenny’s leadership.”
