A neighborhood bank is a place where the teller knows your name. It’s a place where bankers know when times are hard. It’s a place where we believe that small businesses are the heart of the community and help them grow.
From the local corner stores and restaurants to the accountants, manufacturers, and entrepreneurs, we’re the partner that helps you write your story. We don’t need to be the biggest bank. We just need to be the bank that fits your life and your life’s work.
Our 100+ Year Legacy
Our name comes from the journalistic term for authorship. At Byline, we’re a bank that believes in putting our name behind everything we do and we’re here to roll up our sleeves and help our customers write their stories.
Our name may be young, but our history of helping local neighbors, nonprofits, and businesses reaches back to 1914. Our renaming in 2015 signaled a union of our multiple local community bank brands to solidify our commitment to Chicagoland.
It’s our business to know how our customers operate—and our size allows us to respond quickly to your needs. We’re on a mission to be Chicagoland’s premiere commercial relationship bank.
