Chemical Bank Celebrates 100th Anniversary

Tuesday, March 14, marked Chemical Bank’s 100th Anniversary.

Chemical Financial Corpora­tion’s Executive Management team and its corporate board of directors began the celebration by ringing the opening bell at Nasdaq in New York City March 14.

Chemical Bank opened its doors for business March 14, 1917, in the heart of downtown Midland as Chemical State Savings Bank. Through the years, Chemical Bank has focused its attention on deliver­ing a community bank experience highlighted by exceptional customer service, expansive community in­volvement and dedication to phil­anthropic efforts that improve the quality of life for residents of the communities it is privileged to serve, a press release stated.

Today, Chemical Bank has grown to 249 banking centers across a three-state footprint and has over 3,500 employees. Chemical Bank serves over 500,000 households and in 2016, it achieved the distinction of becoming the largest banking com­pany headquartered in Michigan.

“From our start on Main Street in Midland to our most recent expan­sion into neighboring states, we’ve continued our commitment to deliv­ering service as a community bank,” said David B. Ramaker, Chairman, CEO and President of Chemical Bank.

Chemical Bank will be celebrat­ing its centennial throughout the remainder of 2017. In addition to the Nasdaq event March 14, it plans to host a series of customer appre­ciation events, along with employee and community celebrations. Also, in commemorating the occasion, Chemical Bank has kicked off a spring loan special highlighted by special consumer loan interest rates and discounted closing fees.

Chemical Bank has three branch­es in Roscommon County: Hough­ton Lake East, Houghton Lake West and Roscommon.
