First Community Financial Partners Inc., the parent company of First Community Financial Bank, has added an experienced commercial banking team.
The five-person team will focus on assisting middle-market companies with annual sales ranging from $5 to $250 million.
“We are extremely excited to be able to attract such an experienced and dynamic commercial banking team to First Community,” First Community Financial CEO Roy Thygesen said. “With the continued consolidation of the banking industry and market disruption in Chicago, we feel First Community continues to establish itself as an attractive alternative to larger banks serving our markets.”
Senior Vice President Sean Gallagher will lead the team. He has 20 years of commercial banking experience.
“We are very excited to join First Community,” Gallagher said. “This is a great opportunity for us to join an organization with a strong set of core values that align well with the family-owned businesses that we work with. First Community maintains a progressive platform and a flat structure that provide a competitive advantage in the Chicagoland market. We look forward to building upon the already strong brand of First Community and helping to differentiate it from the competition.”
