Specialty lending solutions for all industries.
We needed a financial partner who was going to be able to handle being with us side by side on whatever we needed for the future, not just right now.
I look forward to growing and improving our operation with our partnership with Byline. It’s just been easy. I know that when I pick up the phone someone will always answer.
We already had a bank, but we were looking for something more—a partner that shared the vision we have for our company’s future. Byline has been that partner from day one, supporting our growth and our passion for what we do.
On top of that, the transition to Byline was seamless. They held true to what they said they were going to be. None of the competitors we considered even came close to that level of partnership and service.

Strong business results come from strong banking relationships, which is how our commercial lending team was built. Re-built, actually.
With a strong desire to better serve commercial businesses like yours, we acquired Evanston-based First Bank & Trust in 2018 to overhaul our team with some of the best talent in the industry.
Led by Brogan Ptacin and his 36 years of experience as a senior vice president in commercial banking, our 30+ bankers are here to support your business and see it grow.
We literally tripled a segment of our business, and I couldn’t have done it without Byline. They really understand what we do, from the loan officer all the way to the Chairman.
They have good people, really good people. That’s the difference—they really understand my business. We’re very grateful for the relationship we have and we’re very protective of the relationship. We have a terrific lender. There’s nothing that you could do that would entice us to change banks.
I know that I can pick up the phone and call my guy, and I wouldn’t have to explain who I was. When you’re recognized by name and they know part of your story already—that’s what it’s about. They have been supportive and responsive. Good quality people there. I don’t have to wait in a queue to be picked up by the next customer service person. I have the access to the people I need.
We have a dedicated team ready to roll up their sleeves for you and help with day-to-day operations of your business, including:
