United Community Financial Corp. (NASDAQ: UCFC), holding company of The Home Savings Loan Company, is pleased to welcome Marty E. Adams as the newest member of both the UCFC and Home Savings Boards of Directors. His appointment was effective February 26, 2013.

Mr. Adams has over 30 years of small and large bank management experience. Prior to forming his own company Marty Adams Consulting, LLC, where he serves as both an advisor to banks and their boards of directors and to private equity firms pertaining to bank equity investments, Mr. Adams served as interim chief executive officer of PVF Capital Corp. and Park View Federal Savings Bank, Solon, Ohio before joining their boards of directors.

Under his leadership, Adams built Sky Financial, and its predecessor Citizens Bancshares, Inc., from a small Ohio community bank into an $18 billion diversified financial holding company, with locations throughout the Midwest.

“Marty’s extensive experience in strategic planning and banking will be an asset to both Home Savings and United Community,” said Patrick Bevack, President and CEO of Home Savings and UCFC. Mr. Adams, by and through his consulting firm, Marty Adams Consulting, LLC has been working closely with the Board and management of United Community since February 2011 on United Community’s capital plan. Bevack further stated: “Having Marty as a consultant throughout this process and the experience he brings to the table has been extremely helpful in our capital raising efforts. We look forward to working together, especially as we further develop strategies for both companies.”

A graduate of West Liberty University (formally known as West Liberty State College) with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration and Economics, Mr. Adams earned his MBA at the Franciscan University.
