Mr. Clossin continued, "Furthermore, WesBanco was recently named by Forbes as both one of America's Best Banks and Best Midsize Employers.  In fact, we were the only midsize bank making the top ten in both financial performance and employer of choice.  We are focused on providing top-tier services for our clients and we believe that the only way to do that is to create an environment where our employees are set up to succeed.  These recognitions prove to our current customers, and community members searching for a new banking partner, that WesBanco has the capabilities and track record to provide ongoing financial success."

In addition, WesBanco's banking affiliate, WesBanco Bank, has hired Rick Trew as Vice President, Residential Lending and Regional Sales Manager for the Nashville area office.  In this role, Mr. Trew will be responsible for building a successful mortgage lending team and the management of mortgage production activities to provide ongoing support of WesBanco's vision and mission statements.
