Learn How Connecting the Dots to Create Opportunities is Key to Thriving in Your Community

Jason Duff, founder/CEO of Canby Development, LTD. and Chad Hoffman, president/CEO of Richwood Bank team up to share their experiences and successes in building connections for a stronger community.

Wednesday, November 8th


Der Dutchman Restaurant

Jason Duff has an innate ability in helping entrepreneurs and Main Street communities get from where they are to where they want to be.

Although Duff serves in an executive capacity to several family businesses; he has also founded two companies, Community Storage & Properties and COMSTOR Outdoor, both work synergistically through marketing and real estate/community development to create success.

Duff’s real estate development company, Community Storage & Properties, has been building a critical mass of success stories on Main Street in communities he’s invested millions of dollars in revitalization efforts. Recent projects have resulted in millions of dollars in growth, jobs and downtown development.

He has been awarded the prestigious EMPACT 100 award in both 2011 and 2012, recognizing the Top 100 Entrepreneurs Under 30 in America. He also actively tours as a keynote speaker for The Extreme Entrepreneurship Tour, sponsored by INC Magazine, and lectures at universities and campuses across the country speaking on leadership and entrepreneurship.


Chad Hoffman began his career with Richwood Bank in 1994 and has worked within all positions, from frontline teller to CEO and President beginning in 2007. As a recognized top Columbus workplace for the past four consecutive years, his leadership has tripled the bank’s asset size while garnering nationally coveted recognition such as the Extraordinary Bank of the Year in 2015. He continues to grow the company’s momentum year after year.

Chad’s vision, passion and drive inspire the Richwood team to push the envelope every day with the common goal to make a positive difference for themselves, their customers and their community.

Richwood Bank engages in more than 95 events annually and supports more than 160 non-profit entities through the six locations they serve.

As community banks continue to be downsized, bought out or acquired in the national credit union/big bank political front, we, as Chad puts it, “Zag where everyone else zigs.”
