Letter from the President
According to recent news articles, banking today for many small businesses has become very challenging. At First Bank of Highland Park we recognize that you and your business have your own unique story. You have worked hard to be successful and we want to be there for you and take an active role in understanding your vision and meeting your banking needs. Whether you need a line of credit or a loan to finance equipment or real estate, you can depend on your First Bank of Highland Park Relationship Manager from the initial discussion to the loan closing and beyond. Our Bank is locally owned and all loan decisions are made right here in Highland Park, unlike many national Banks. Our response time is unbeatable as we do not have the layers of bureaucracy that larger lenders go through to make a decision.
As a privately owned bank, we take our business with you personally. That is why we focus on building long term relationships with Clients who are making decisions that work for the current fiscal year and the next generation. We have worked side-by-side with our Clients since 1955 combining practicality with creativity, while always remaining a consistent and steady financial partner in good and bad economies. We are working with first, second, and third generations of entrepreneurs to perpetuate family businesses for generations to come.
I hope you will join us and please visit to see for yourself the genuine friendliness backed by healthy banking practices at either of our two North Shore locations.
With friendly regards,
Randy L. Green
President and Chief Executive Officer
