We do more for your money®.


For almost 50 years, First American Bank has based its growth on providing the financial products and services that middle market businesses need as they meet their manufacturing and exporting needs.


First American, the largest privately held bank in Illinois, brings its services to clients throughout the nation, with local presence in Chicago, Miami and Kenosha, Wis. We offer a complete selection of loan and deposit products tailored to manage business finances of every type and complexity. 


We place a high priority on building long-term relationships with our commercial customers by having tenured senior lenders on each client’s team. This commitment to consistency ensures a thorough understanding of each client’s unique needs and an ability to rapidly and confidently respond to any request. 


First American has combined the benefits of being privately held with its $4.9 billion size to commit to a depth and consistency in unusual markets like ESOP financing and SBA guaranteed credit lines for foreign receivables as well as more traditional real estate, equipment and working capital financing.


We invite you to further view our substantial range of sophisticated business and commercial services and our capacity to handle your most intricate business needs. Call (847) 427-5000 or (305) 500-9501 to arrange an appointment.
