First Eagle Bank is an entrepreneurial, independent bank, laser focused on developing long lasting relationships with our customers, our community and our staff.
Many of our customers have been with us for twenty, even thirty years, going back to a previous bank owned by my family. They include real estate developers and investors, family owned businesses, and entrepreneurs. They bank with us because they value a relationship with decision makers and like minded entrepreneurs, who know the banking business - and who are personally invested in their business too.
We have always taken an active role in our community and are very proud of our outstanding Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) rating and our Community Development Financial Institution (CDFI) certification. We are committed to providing credit, capital, and financial services to underserved communities and our staff is personally committed and involved with non-profits that assist people in these communities.
The reason we have long lasting customer relationships is because we have long lasting relationships with our staff. Most of our officers and staff have been with us for several years and our senior management team has been with us for over twenty years. Many of our officers are personally vested (literally) in First Eagle Bank and we are all personally invested in making a difference in people’s lives - our customers, our community and each other.
Please call me at 312-850-9230 whenever I can be of assistance to you.
Chief Executive Officer
First Eagle Bank’s continuing success is closely tied to the economic and financial health of the communities it serves. At First Eagle, we’re committed to the neighborhoods and businesses where we and our customers live and work.
We do this by putting our financial and human resources to work through direct financial support, partnerships, and volunteer resources. Our outstanding Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) rating was affirmed for the third consecutive exam. Given that only a limited number of banks share this rating, we are extremely proud of this accomplishment, which is a testament to our deep commitment to the communities we serve, including those underserved communities.
Throughout the Bank, staff remains community focused and actively involved in forming vital partnerships. These partnerships in turn foster a better understanding of the specific needs of the communities we serve, and in particular, those populations which are underserved.
