In a release, bank officials say the transition will provide the operation with new growth opportunities, and allow Northwest Bank to increase lending capabilities and provide new products and services in the former First National Bank service areas.   The change will also strengthen the bank's ability to reinvest into its communities and employees, all under a strong and diverse leadership team.

Eekhoff says the transition makes sense for the holding company.
