    The Talmer Bank Story"

    Gary Torgow


    Talmer Bancorp Inc.



    Talmer Bank Chairman, Gary Torgow will share how purchasing troubled banks in 2007 in the middle of the worst recession in 50 years enabled the organization to grow by nearly 8,000 percent from a one-branch bank holding company in Troy with just $75 million in assets and 30 employees to the fastest growing bank since 2009 with assets of just over $5.6 billion and 94 branch offices in four Midwestern states.

    • Learn the perils, pitfalls and rewards of starting a new business.

    • Gain first-hand knowledge of the legal and business sides of acquisitions.

    • Find out how the development of an implementable strategy to serve and support the local communities where they live and work, helped them to clearly focus their marketing efforts.

    • Discover how the development of the bank’s name played a part in the overall business strategy.
    This event is important to anyone who wants to learn about recognizing value, managing growth, as well as the importance of marketing to a community rather than to a region or nation.
