As of February 10, First Place Bank became Talmer Bank and Trust.
We know what you’re asking—“What does this mean to me?” The answer is simple. Talmer, just like First Place, is a Midwest-based community bank, and one with demonstrated financial strength. So you can count on us to take care of you for many years to come.
For the last year First Place Bank has been operating under the ownership of Talmer Bank and Trust, and it’s now time to make the name change! Our competitive advantage of local processing, underwriting and closing will not change!
And while our name may be different, the names of the people who take care of you are still the same. So is our strong commitment to personal service and to this community.
In fact, the name “Talmer” is a tribute by the Bank’s two principals to their grandfathers (named Talmage and Merzon), who both dedicated their lives to community service.
As before, you’re invited to call on me whenever I can be of service. Now that we’re Talmer, some things may look a bit different, but my Team—and our commitment to you—will seem very familiar!!
