Illinois National Bank Announces Opening of New Chatham Branch


The Illinois National Bank branch located at the corner of Route 4 and Plummer Boulevard in Chatham is now open. Richard K. McCord, president and CEO of Illinois National Bank (INB) in Springfield, announced the opening today. Construction of this branch began in October of last year. Illinois National Bank had been operating from the former Palmer Bank location in Main Plaza, after acquiring that branch last year.

“We’re proud to be part of the Chatham community, and are delighted to be in our new building,” stated McCord. “We’ve experienced tremendous growth during the past four years, thanks to the welcome response from customers in Chatham and the greater Springfield area. Our Chatham branch is a full-service, 3850 square-foot facility, complete with three drive-thru lanes, a 24-hour ATM and safe deposit boxes.”

Formal grand opening ceremonies are planned on Thursday, June 19th from 4 to 6 p.m. The public is invited to attend. A formal ribbon cutting will take place at 4:30 p.m. Food and beverages will be provided. “We look forward to seeing our current customers and meeting other residents of the community during our open house. Special incentives will be available for those interested in INB’s banking services,” said McCord.

Branch manager at this location is James Burgdorf. Other staff members include Dale Meyers, loan officer; Becky Beadle, customer service representative; Dana Baisden, Jon Leonard, Casey Julseth, Megan Smith and Sarah Moore, tellers.

Illinois National Bank is a $273 million locally owned bank, managed by a group of 40 individual investors. Members of the board of directors include McCord, James V. Antonacci, James Bruner, William F. Cellini, Peter B. Fox, Richard H. Levi, Timothy J. Nicoud, Carolyn B. Oxtoby, Sergio (Satch) Pecori and Charles E. Robbins.
