Ohio is filled with exceptional people who believe lifting the lives of others is of greater purpose than elevating oneself. Telhio Credit Union, in partnership with LEAD Magazine, is proud to recognize these influencers; they serve with humility, empowering others to grow.

When Telhio Credit Union merged with the former Chaco Credit Union in the Hamilton market, it was one of its goals to bring a new way of banking to the Cincinnati-Dayton area by way of sophisticated branches, as well as unique products and services. Telhio has been in business since 1934. As the number one SBA Lender in Ohio among credit unions, we recognize the value of business ownership and the leadership that keeps those businesses operating at a high level of efficiency. We are very excited to support this community with the same level of service that we have been able to provide the Columbus area for many years.

These leaders contribute to our collective success every day. Their vision has resulted in sustainable growth and improved the quality of life for all of our citizens. These leading influencers come from all areas of business, government and nonprofits. They are your friends, family members and neighbors. They have a vision to create a community that we can all be proud of, a community where we can raise our families.

As a not-for-profit credit union, giving back to the community is our way of life and the largest part of our operating culture. With your support, we are able to do more donating, volunteering and sponsoring in our communities. Telhio would like to thank LEAD Magazine for partnering with us to showcase all of the leading influencers recognized here. If you know any of these leaders, we hope you will recognize their dedication the next time you see them.
