CIBC marked the grand opening of its newest banking center in Chicago’s Little Village neighborhood with a ribbon cutting celebration attended by city officials and CIBC bank representatives.
“We have been a part of the Little Village community for many years, particularly supporting small businesses and their growth ambitions,” said Al Adams, head of U.S. community banking at CIBC. “We are excited to now have a banking center location where clients can visit with our professionals to discuss personal savings, mortgage needs or small business banking opportunities.”
The 6,000-square-foot facility at 3010 S. Kedzie Avenue houses a full-service bank branch staffed by personal bankers, residential lending specialists and small business banking professionals, as well as a drive-up lane and an ATM. Also featured in the new facility is a community room with seating for up to 30.
“Chicago is successful when institutions invest and grow in our neighborhoods—as our neighborhoods grow, so does the entire city,” said Samir Mayekar, Deputy Mayor for Neighborhood and Economic Development. “I want to thank CIBC for being a great partner and advancing Chicago’s neighborhood agenda, especially for increasing access to capital.”
“Little Village has always provided a haven of homes for working men and women. It has not always had banks on this block,” said Melissa Conyears, city of Chicago Treasurer. “Times have changed for the better. CIBC is a big part of that change as it invests in the Little Village community. I believe that CIBC is not only a partner for Little Village but a partner for Chicago.”
