First Bank & Trust announced today that it would celebrate its 17th Anniversary Oct. 15 through 19 with a Customer Appreciation Week. Current customers visiting any of the bank's nine locations during lobby hours will be treated to complimentary baked goods and coffee, and have the opportunity to enter a drawing for the new iPad Mini, Northwestern University football tickets, and other prizes. New customers who open an account of any kind, will also be entered into the prize drawings. Personal bankers will be on hand to assist patrons with the First Bank & Trust Switch Kit, and new Junior Bankers will receive a complimentary evergreen seedling and an eco-friendly piggy bank.
First Bank & Trust Managing Director and CEO Robert R. Yohanan said, “17 years ago when we started with a staff of 12, we had a vision for a community bank focused on individual, non-profit and local business customers who value integrity and high quality service. We've always believed if we do right by the community and our customers we would succeed.” Yohanan added, “Our growth has been largely due to positive word of mouth from our customers, and we want to recognize them for 'putting us first' with this celebration.”
First Bank & Trust's 17th Anniversary Customer Appreciation Week begins Monday, Oct. 15 at 8:30 a.m. And concludes Friday, Oct. 19 at 6:00 p.m. For more information call 847-733-7400 or visit www.firstbt.com.
