Plainfield, IL – October 11, 2013
First Community Financial Bank has appointed Greg Schaefer, age 56, as its new Senior Vice President and Market President in Plainfield.
“Greg brings 34 years of experience in commercial banking and relationship management to First Community and is very well known in the Joliet and Plainfield communities,” said Roy Thygesen, CEO of First Community Financial Bank. “His experience, proven ability to respond to the commercial banking needs of businesses large and small, and knowledge of the Plainfield community make Greg the right choice for Plainfield. He is a perfect addition to our organization.”
After earning a BS degree from the University of Illinois at Champaign/Urbana in 1979, Schaefer went on to study at the Independent Bankers School at SIU Carbondale and the American Bankers Association Commercial Lending School in Norman, Oklahoma. He has been actively involved in the Plainfield Lions Club for many years and has served the club as Treasurer for the past 4 years. He has served on the Village of Plainfield Advisory Task Force on Economic Development since its formation in 2010.
“My wife and I have lived in Plainfield for the past 25 years. After being involved in the local community and raising our children here, I am very excited to be part of an independent community bank that invests in our home town,” said Schaefer.
“While larger banks have the resources to help businesses, the opportunity to really know my customers and respond to the needs of small business owners within their timetable is really what attracted me to First Community.”
First Community Financial Bank was established in Joliet when a group of local business leaders dedicated themselves to chartering a bank that would focus on a commitment to their community. Within five years, additional community banking facilities were opened in Plainfield, Homer Glen, Burr Ridge, Channahon and Naperville. Over the years, the reception by local businesses and professional firms has proven that small and mid-sized businesses respond to a bank that is owned and operated by local, experienced bankers who are invested in and concerned for the future of their community.
