President's Blog; Spring 2021
March 01, 2021
While banking in 2020 was characterized by the pandemic, stimulus funding and low interest rates, 2021 will most likely see a recovery and a revival of the economy. Here at Silver Lake Bank, we are positioned to help drive economic growth in our community and have maintained our strong reputation of safe and sound practices and common sense lending.
Our bank lobbies reopen on March 1st and we couldn’t be happier! You can add this option back on the table for ways to do business with us. This is about you, so please continue to choose how you prefer to bank and communicate; online, email, phone or in-person - and rely on us to be ready.
It is my pleasure to announce two recent SLB promotions as approved by our board of directors; Nick Gideon to Lawrence Market President and Cole Sjeklocha to Assistant Vice President. In addition, Nick was elected to our SLB Board of Directors. Nick has worked to develop a substantial loan portfolio and relationships within his 4 years as a Lawrence lender. He and our Lawrence staff are committed to developing new business in the community. Cole has been with the bank for 5 years and has become a point of contact for existing customers and has grown his own portfolio in and around the Silver Lake community. Nick and Cole embrace the Bank’s history of a strong service culture.
Many of you are gearing up for home remodeling projects. Visit with us for lending options that best fit your needs. Our lending staff is currently fulfilling business PPP loan requests.
