VANDERCOOK COLLEGE OF MUSIC HAS A DREAM!

"Lakeside became my bank over five years ago. I was tired of dealing with faceless people and their big corporate, bureaucratic attitude. I was looking for a bank that would take a personal interest in me and in my financial matters. Once I met the folks at Lakeside Bank I knew instantly this was the place I was going to call my bank. Their professional approach with a personal touch really makes a difference."

Dr. Charles T. Menghini, President, VanderCook College of Music

MARY BAHR HAS A DREAM!

"A good friend and mentor suggested that I check out Lakeside Bank when I started my business over 10 years ago, and it was one of the smartest decisions I ever made. My relationship with Lakeside has been an invaluable asset. It’s a bank where I can pick up the phone and they know me: I’m not a number or a spreadsheet. I can walk into a branch and I’m greeted by name by everyone I see. Bank officers have cheered us on, supported us through thick and thin, and provided me with introductions to people and resources that have helped my business grow."

"When we were moving to the city we found that some banks were not interested in opening a new account if you weren't a large corporate customer. I called Lakeside and not only did a real person answer the phone, they treated me as if they had known me for a long time. From the beginning on, I have felt that I am part of the "family". This is the way banking should be!"

Kevin Lepper, Advantage Network
