Bank opens regional office downtown
A bank has unveiled its new regional corporate office and banking center inside a newly completed high-rise downtown.
TCF Bank, a subsidiary of TCF Financial Corporation, which merged with Chemical Bank this summer, hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony Dec. 10 for its new regional corporate office and banking center in downtown Grand Rapids, at 150 Ottawa Ave. NW, Suite 900.
The new banking center is located on the first floor of the 15-story Warner Building, which was completed earlier this year. TCF Bank’s corporate office is located on the building’s ninth floor.
TCF President and COO Tom Shafer and TCF West Michigan Regional President Krista Flynn were on hand at the ribbon cutting.
“The regional corporate office and banking center in Grand Rapids is a significant move for TCF Bank,” Shafer said.
“We have undergone a number of changes this year following our merger of equals, and our main focus remains the same — providing a great customer experience and giving back to the communities we serve in meaningful ways, including supporting economic opportunity for our state and region. Some of our key teams, including middle market banking and mortgage operations, are based in Grand Rapids.”
Chemical Financial Corporation and TCF Financial Corporation closed its merger of equals on Aug. 1, becoming TCF Financial Corporation headquartered in Detroit.
Chemical Bank and TCF Bank brands will continue in the market until mid-2020, when Chemical Bank banking centers will be re-branded as TCF Bank.
The merger created a Midwest bank with $46 billion in total assets, more than 500 banking centers in nine states, and a specialty lending and leasing business in all 50 states.
