Meet Andi Whalen

Andi Whalen

AVP, Bloomington and Champaign Branch Manager

Andi Whalen’s financial career began after she graduated from Normal Community High School in Bloomington and decided to move to New Mexico. A family member referred her to a job opening at a credit union, which introduced Andi to the banking industry and a job she loved.

After a couple of years, Andi returned to Central Illinois to manage a hotel, obtaining her hotel operations certificate. Andi laughs that “the hospitality industry taught me a lot more than I could have asked for about customer service!”

Today, Andi has found herself back in the banking industry, now serving as the branch manager for the INB Bloomington branch. She was drawn to INB for its positive company culture and high standards.

When she’s not working, Andi is largely involved in the Bloomington-Normal community. Currently, she serves on the Board of the Bloomington-Normal Jaycees, and she is a frequent volunteer at the Midwest Food Bank. 

Andi also loves to escape to her RV, parked permanently at a campground 20 minutes outside of Bloomington, where she hikes, fishes and kayaks – oftentimes with her dad who has an RV right next to hers. Her “mini vacations” always include her dogs, who she says are “old and very large and my whole world!” Andi is also very close with her parents and five siblings, who live around the Midwest. 

Andi is excited about her career at INB and building relationships in the Bloomington community. “It is clear to me this is where I’m supposed to be. I’m impressed with the level of standards INB hold itself to, and the amount of support from my coworkers is very refreshing.”
