AKRON, Ohio, June 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- On Thursday, June 13, 2013, FirstMerit Bank (Nasdaq: FMER) will formally introduce its brand by unveiling new signs on former Citizens Bank branches across Michigan and Wisconsin. Changing the signs is the latest and most visible step in the process of integrating the two banks.

"We are excited to introduce the FirstMerit brand on branch signage in communities across Michigan and Wisconsin," says Paul Greig, chairman, president and CEO, FirstMerit Corporation. "Throughout this time of change, our teams continue to provide customers with the superior level of service they've come to expect, and that is our top priority."

In April 2013, FirstMerit Corporation legally consummated its acquisition of Citizens Republic Bancorp. The acquisition was announced in September 2012. Rebranding the branches is the latest step in the seamless integration process to full systems conversion in the fall.

"There are a lot of exciting things planned this week and in the coming months as we introduce the FirstMerit brand in these two great states," said Sandy Pierce, vice chairman, FirstMerit Corporation, and chairman and CEO, FirstMerit Michigan. "FirstMerit has been committed to communities we serve since 1845. We're excited about being here and want our customers to share in the excitement."

In addition to visiting branches, customers can find out about everything going on by visiting the company websites and Facebook page.
