Elkhart Chamber of Commerce Names Centier Bank Business of the Month
June 10, 2020
ELKHART, Ind. – The Business Recognition Council of the Greater Elkhart Chamber of Commerce recently presented Centier Bank the Business of the Month Award. Centier associates and Elkhart Chamber of Commerce members gathered June 4 outside the bank’s Downtown Elkhart branch for a plaque ceremony.
Kathy Cardwell, Business Recognition Council Liaison for the Chamber, said businesses who receive the award are first nominated, and then assessed via a questionnaire about their history, mission, values, and contributions to the community.
“Centier Bank has made wonderful contributions to the chamber and the community as a whole,” Cardwell said. “We appreciate their membership and the work they do.”
Anthony Contrucci, Vice President of Community Relations at Centier Bank, said the chamber’s recognition is a reflection on Centier’s commitment to the Elkhart community.
“Centier Bank makes it a point to intentionally and strategically engage in the community,” Contrucci explained. “The way we see it is communities have graciously welcomed Centier to serve them. The community has been there for us during times of crisis and we’ll always be there for them.”
Len Amat, Michiana Market President at Centier Bank, said the bank’s expansion into Elkhart—with its most recent branch opening in downtown last November--has been a positive experience, and the support from the Greater Elkhart Chamber has been wonderful.
“Centier’s Servant Heart Culture is present in every interaction we have—both inside and outside our bank branches,” Amat said. “Our associates are encouraged and emboldened to serve the community and to give back where it’s needed. We appreciate the chamber’s support and recognition.”
