Led by the motto, “My success can only follow the success of my clients,” Jeremiah Cargle approaches banking a little differently than most. With 20 years of sales experience and a previous tenure at a large bank, he joined Civista Bank as vice president in 2021 with the objective to help others succeed. He does this by drawing on his sales experience to see obstacles—and the tools he can use to overcome them—from a different perspective. In his role as private banker, he serves his clients grounded in his concierge practice of “bringing the bank to them,” which aligns well with Civista’s boutique nature.
Headquartered in Sandusky, Ohio, Civista Private Bank is a “working person’s private bank” committed to helping customers and communities address financial needs and goals, with speed being their biggest asset. Jeremiah serves high-net-worth blue- and white-collar individuals in Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky. He works hand-in-hand with his clients, personally meeting with them in the workplace—whether a manufacturing floor or a parking lot—learning about their hopes and dreams and helping them curate a plan to achieve their financial goals and gain success in their lives, however they define it. Truly, the opportunity to give back is what drives him the most, and that includes participating in Civista’s financial education classes for area schools. “Dayton and the suburbs are where I grew up, so being able to help build the Gem City back to where it once was is absolutely one of the best parts of my job,” Jeremiah shares.
