Recognizing Mr. Montler’s service, Peter Smith, CNB’s Chairperson, said, “Bob Montler has been a terrific Director. He brought superb business and financial skills to CNB’s Board along with detailed knowledge of CNB’s markets in Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York, and Virginia. Bob runs a thriving business of his own, but he was always generous with his time and enthusiasm for CNB. Bob enjoyed the give and take of Board discussions. He was always supportive, always a gentleman and will always be a friend of CNB.”
As the president and CEO of both Lee Industries and Keystone Process Equipment, Mr. Montler was elected to serve the CNB Financial Corporation Board of Directors in 2005.

“Serving on the boards of CNB Financial Corporation and CNB Bank have been an incredibly rewarding experience. The change that has occurred over the last 16 years in the community banking arena has been nothing short of astounding,” said Mr. Montler. “The commitment, dedication and professionalism of the executive management, board members, and employees make it no surprise that the growth and success of CNB Bank has been the envy of many community banks. I am confident that they will continue the high level of performance as they expand their footprint, and they have my best wishes for every continued success.”
