Seaway Community Bank of St. Clair, will be merging with Northstar Bank out of Bad Axe, pending regulatory approvals. Both Seaway and Northstar had record-breaking years in 2012 according to Roy Klecha, president and chief executive officer at Seaway. He says customers can expect better services and products. Officials expect the merger to be completed in the fourth quarter of this year. Seaway has about 7,600 customers, along with three branches and a fourth about ready to open. The two banks are under the same holding company, Northstar Financial Group Inc. Once the merger is complete, all of the branches will be Northstar Bank with the headquarters in Bad Axe, and Klecha will become chief executive officer. Once the merger is complete, the group will have about 100 employees once the merger is complete, and there are no plans to reduce staff.
