To the clients and communities we proudly serve,
I want to wish everyone a healthy and happy summertime. While this summer will not contain many of the normal activities and routines, I hope you can find new pastimes that inspire rejuvenation and fun. Safety is the top priority for everyone.
COVID-19 remains at the forefront of our everyday lives as we attempt to rebuild what has been lost. Those who know me know that I believe almost anything can be accomplished with a great team, a great attitude, and a great effort. This view has been reinforced daily in my conversations with leaders from communities we serve. Every day, I hear stories of businesses refusing to quit and finding new ways to serve customers and keep their doors open. I hear of our individual clients keeping positive attitudes and doing all the right things to stay ahead despite the adverse circumstances. I hear of communities banding together to support their most vulnerable. We have been proud to support those efforts through the many programs we have created specifically to help those in need during this pandemic.
The branches of our charters began to enact their reopening plans in early July as their local circumstances allowed. As we have in each phase, Wintrust will support our communities and we will do so in a way that keeps our employees, clients, and visitors safe. We are reopening the lobbies of some of our bank branches and we will open more as it is safe to do so. All of our offices and services remain open as they have throughout this crisis. We know you need a partner that is nimble and can flex where needed to help you through whatever this ‘new normal’ throws our way.
We remain in uncertain times. During these times, we need to remain strong and support each other. Please stay healthy and safe. Thank you for your business and trust in Wintrust.
