NorthSide Community Bank, in Gurnee, was formed in 1997 by a professional group of business men and women to respond to an ever-evolving market place. When the bank looked for a center of operation Gurnee was an obvious choice because of its central location, as well as the fact it is one of the fastest growing communities in Illinois. Lake County provided a diverse business market, from small to medium sized manufacturing as well as a strong mix of retail and service businesses. The experience of NorthSide Community Bank’s management team could respond successfully to the variety of needs this market required. Over the next 20 years the bank expanded to four locations in communities that blended well with our staff and our business lines.
NorthSide Community Bank’s ownership and management team are local, on purpose. Our local market place knowledge and experience incorporate your needs. The bank offers a complete product line of commercial loans and services, in addition to a compliment of retail and loan products, specifically designed for the small to medium size business market. NorthSide Community Bank is well capitalized and has a lending limit in excess of $10 million.
NorthSide Community Bank’s board of directors and management have navigated through the great recession and the stagnant recovery with great success. Management worked through many difficult situations and found solutions for our customers that brought stability, as well as positioning them for continued growth.
