Loan Officer and Client with Tractor


Cardinal Recycling

“When we were looking to move to Morris we were referred to Pete Brummel. Our company was in its infancy approximately two years old. Pete worked with us in purchasing our first lot and since has worked with us on all projects that we have done. This work has included major capital expenditures for processing equipment to land expansion and new buildings. Pete and Grundy Bank has played a big part in our growth. It has been a pleasure to work with not only Pete but the entire staff at Grundy Bank. With deep sincerity we would like to thank you for your support.”

- Mike Reinert, Owner of Cardinal Recycling, Morris, IL


B&B Construction and Excavating Company

“We chose Grundy Bank when we moved our business to the area in 2008.  After banking previously with a larger bank, we knew we were now looking for a smaller bank where we could develop a more personal relationship.  Since that time and from working with Don Brown and J.R. Hock to Judy Buttry at the front desk to the ladies in the drive up facility, we have accomplished our goal and could not be happier with our choice!”           

- Linda Goldsmith, Office Manager of B&B Construction and Excavating Company, Morris, IL



“Being in the real estate business it is important to have trust, confidence and a good working relationship with the local loan officers. The Loan Staff at Grundy Bank, both commercial & residential, have always been extremely professional and accommodating to clients that I have worked with. This has also been the case with my personal loan needs as well.”

- Steve Barr, Realtor and Commercial Real Estate Investor, Morris, IL


Morris Business & Technology Center

"I have been doing business with Grundy Bank since 1970. Every step along the way in my career, the employees and management of Grundy Bank have been there for me with advice, support and financing.

I started small with the bank financing, a home loan and a rental business, while I  was a teacher. When I left teaching to take over as owner of Aidex Corporation, Grundy Bank was there with encouragement and financing. Finally, when I developed the Morris Business & Technology Center, Grundy Bank was there.

I cannot say enough about the genuine interest shown by the people working at Grundy Bank. The management has always been professional and the staff courteous and efficient.

I want to personally thank Ron Wohlwend for his years of dedication and an "open ear". I look forward to working with Kevin Olson as he brings fresh ideas and technology to the bank.

It does not surprise me that you are celebrating 150 years of success. Good people make good things happen. I have and will continue to recommend Grundy Bank to my friends and business colleagues."

- Gary Rockis, Owner of Morris Business & Technology Center, Morris, IL
