Chuck Sulerzyski, Peoples Bank CEO, On Why Peoples is a Great Choice

Apr 1, 2024

In July 2023, Chuck Sulerzyski announced his intention to retire from Peoples Bank where he has served as Peoples’ President and CEO since 2011. Sulerzyski built a strong foundation and culture that has put Peoples on the path to being the “Best Community Bank in America.” Here are just a few of his reasons why Peoples has been and will continue to be a great choice for individuals, businesses and investors.

  1. We are the epitome of a community bank.

Our associates commit time and money to help make our local communities stronger. They have contributed over $504,000 out of their own pockets to local food banks since April 2020, volunteer at area non-profits, host supply drives and more. We also believe in investing in our communities by providing capital to individuals and businesses so they can access the financial resources they need to promote economic growth and employment. And, I am proud to report the Peoples Bank Foundation has awarded over $7 million in grants and scholarships since its inception in 2003.

  1. We have a diverse set of businesses.

In addition to traditional banking, Peoples Bank has insurance*, investments**, leasing and premium finance businesses. We continually look for ways to enhance our products and services to benefit our clients and produce deep and meaningful relationships with them. We are proud to provide extraordinary client experiences, being recognized by Newsweek as one of America’s Best Regional Banks 2024.

  1. We continue to improve and develop a unique and strong company culture.

Peoples Bank has a distinctive culture characterized by passion for individual and organizational improvement, frequent coaching and attention to performance at all levels. We value our employees and reinforce a positive work environment by focusing on high levels of professional, physical and mental support, a safe space for equal and open discussions, encouragement and compassion. We believe in aligning our company values and actions to reflect the PEBO CIRCLE (Clients First, Integrity Always, Respect for All, Commitment to Community, Lead the Way and Excellence in Everything).

As Chuck passes the baton on April 1, 2024, to Tyler Wilcox, someone who shares his company culture mindset with a 15-year track record leading teams at PEBO, Peoples Bank will continue to build upon its strength to become the Best Community Bank in America.
