Centier Bank Opens Downtown Elkhart Branch
November 4, 2019
Michael E. Schrage, President and CEO of Centier Bank, is pleased to announce its third banking center in Elkhart and ninth in the Michiana region, with its doors now open in Downtown Elkhart at 100 S. Main St.
Centier Bank first ventured into Michiana with the opening of its La Porte branch in 2004, Plymouth in 2005, followed by Mishawaka in 2007 and Elkhart in 2014. The bank has since expanded with branches in Goshen, Granger, and two in South Bend. In 2018, Centier Bank opened the doors at its Elkhart North location in 2018, paving the way for expansion downtown.
“At a time in which other banks are merging or abandoning this area, Centier Bank is planting its roots and investing in Elkhart and Greater Michiana,” explained Schrage. “Our continued growth is a testament to our community focus and ‘Not For Sale’ promise that we will remain family-owned and Indiana-based, providing world-class banking services to our clients.”
The Downtown Elkhart branch will host both retail and business bankers, and will offer a community room, a self-service coin machine, complimentary coffee, and free Wi-Fi. Branch associates have already begun giving back to the community, through various efforts as part of Centier Bank's Servant Heart Culture.
“Centier is a family-oriented organization that wants to do what is best for their clients and communities,” said Monica Abair, Branch Manager of Centier Bank’s Downtown Elkhart location. “There is a real focus here to make the communities in which we live better each day.”
Passers-by can see Centier Bank’s traditional “big blue bow” adorning the building beginning on its opening day, Nov. 4, 2019, in celebration of the branch’s opening and ahead of its ribbon cutting event, Nov. 18, 2019.
