Community State Bank (CSB) along with the Kenosha Area Chamber of Commerce held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the bank’s Kenosha location on Tuesday, June 8, 2021.
The ribbon cutting carried significance in several ways. The office officially opened on June 2, 2020, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, so an official ceremony could not be held at that time. Almost 1 year later, CSB and the Kenosha Area Chamber of Commerce were able to hold an official ribbon-cutting ceremony that also marked the 1-year anniversary of the office.
“It’s been an incredible year for our Kenosha office,” said CSB President & CEO Scott Huedepohl. “Opening a new office, in a new market, in the middle of a health and safety scare like COVID, probably isn’t how you would draw it up, but flexibility and creative problem solving have always been a big part of our success at CSB. I’m really proud of our team.”
Market President Robert Pieroni; AVP Cash Managment Laura Burnett-Shoemaker; Retail Manager Mandi Maas; and Universal Banker & Mortgage Specialist Kevin Jorgensen lead CSB’s efforts in the Kenosha market.
“Kenosha is such a wonderful community, and everyone has been very welcoming,” said Robert Pieroni. “I think everyone has been excited that a local community bank has returned to a market that was really missing it.” Pieroni continued, “We’re glad to be able to provide the personalized experience that comes with our style of community banking.”
CSB would like to thank the Kenosha Area Chamber of Commerce, including: President & CEO Lou Molitor; Board Member Matt Krauter; Membership & Event Coordinator Emily Stipan; and Chamber Ambassadors Jennifer Grenier and Christine Nowland for helping organize and celebrate the occasion.
