Mike Simpson represented Telhio Credit Union in its search for its newest location. Telhio signed a 10-year lease at 330 Rush Alley at The Peninsula in Franklinton. Citing a desire to be in a progressive area, Telhio sought a location that also offered building signage and kept all employees on one floor. Telhio is in the process of selling its 96 N. 4th Street location to an owner occupant which is expected to close later this month. It will lease back its current location until its Franklinton location is ready to occupy in summer 2023.
