ST. JOHN, Ind. — An intimate group gathered in the lobby of Centier Bank’s newest branch Aug. 19, to commemorate the opening of the bank’s brand-new location at 9621 Wicker Ave. Centier broke ground on the new location last fall, coincidentally on the 20th anniversary of Centier’s first-ever St. John branch opening.
Centier Bank CEO and Chairman, Mike Schrage, along with St. John Town Manager, Chris Salatas, Bruce Boyer of Boyer Construction, Sam Alberico, President of the St. John-Dyer Chamber of Commerce, were among the attendees at the ribbon cutting event.
“Being a part of the St. John community is very special to us, and we’ve had the honor of serving hometown, community banking to the wonderful people of St. John for almost 22 years,” Schrage explained. “This new branch offers modern amenities and a beautiful interior for our clients, as well as convenient access to and from Route 41.”
St. John Town Manager, Chris Salitas, spoke at the ceremony, congratulating Schrage and Centier Bank on the grand opening of the new location, and extending gratitude.
“I want to thank Centier Bank for continuing to invest in the St. John community,” Salatas said. “We are proud to call you our neighbor and look forward to partnering together to make St. John the best it can be for years to come.”
St. John Branch Manager, Kim Traina, cut the blue ribbon along with Salatas, with Schrage and her colleagues by her side.
“I am so proud to welcome our clients to this beautiful space, and excited to serve them memorable banking experiences,” Traina said. “We are thrilled to have expanded our drive-up banking services to more lanes in order to better serve more clients and being right off of Route 41 makes for a convenient stop at the bank.”
