New Illinois Branch Open for Business — and to New Community Relationships
A new year means new beginnings, so it was only fitting that just two days shy of 2014, a new BMO Harris branch opened its doors at 8300 South Holland Road in Chicago’s Chatham community.
With Bank Manager Monica Linares at the helm, the branch’s first order of business is getting to know the community ― both residents and businesses.
Monica and her team — along with the support of some great partnering organizations — are celebrating with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Feb. 25, as well as planning community appreciation day events for early spring that will be a fun way to welcome people into the branch.
“We don’t just do business in this community,” Monica says, “we’re part of it. Many of our employees live here and have a personal interest in seeing the community grow and thrive.”
Monica is looking forward to getting her mortgage banker out in the community to meet residents and provide them with information and resources about buying a home.
“We know that home ownership is a big part of the foundation of a strong community. We’re eager to do our part to make that foundation strong.”
