We are very pleased to announce the merger with Bank of Coral Gables. This union will extend the tradition of community banking and personalized service that has characterized Bank of Coral Gables and First American Bank for many years. Coral Gables became our 50th location, and the first outside of the Chicago metropolitan area.
The warm and approachable style of banking you have come to appreciate at Coral Gables will remain the same. You will continue to see the same names and faces, including Daniel Eggland, Branch President, who will lead the staff. Dan will report to our Executive Vice President, Brian Hagan, who has relocated to the Coral Gables area.
We also welcome Coral Gables Board Members, William Kerdyk, Michael Kashtan, Carlos Rodriguez and Chip Withers, to continue their participation on our Advisory Board focusing on the South Florida markets. In addition to the Advisory Board, Coral Gables Chairman, William Kerdyk, and Director Michael Kashtan, will serve on First American’s Board of Directors. We welcome their local experience and expertise as we grow our banking franchise in this new and exciting market.
We’re no stranger to the South Florida financial marketplace. We have long recognized the vibrant entrepreneurial spirit in the South Florida corridor and for over a decade have been active in providing trade finance, commercial lending, and wealth management services to Florida clients serving the Caribbean and Latin American markets. We found the same rich commercial traditions here that underpinned our growth in Chicago over the past 40 years.
For more than 40 years, First American Bank has delivered proven expertise in banking and wealth management with personalized service to individuals, families, businesses and organizations. Our long-standing record of strength and stability has enabled us to grow to $3.4 billion in assets, with trust assets under management of $1.9 billion. We value our customers and look forward to building a long-term relationship with you.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call us in Coral Gables at (305) 500-9501 or Illinois at (847) 952-3700 or visit our website at www.FirstAmBank.com. Welcome! We look forward to serving you for many years to come.
