Centier Bank Cuts Ribbon on New Branch, Celebrates Indianapolis Expansion

Centier Bank proudly celebrated the opening of its 7th Indianapolis-area banking center with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and reception April 10. The new branch, located at 6210 Allisonville Rd. opened in early March, kicking off the multi-branch expansion Centier Bank has planned in the Greater Indianapolis market.

Centier Bank’s Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board, Mike Schrage, along with Indianapolis Market President, Troy Kafka, Regional Sales Manager, Ben Studebaker, and Branch Manager, Ann Grace, welcomed members of Indianapolis’ business community, local chambers, and nonprofit organizations to the celebration. Schrage addressed the attendees, thanking them for joining in the celebration and for their community support.

“It’s our privilege to have you here and to serve family-owned, community banking to Indianapolis,” Schrage said. “Over the past 129 years, Centier has grown into the 5th largest Indiana-based bank, with over 60 offices across the state. We’re committed to serving Indiana, and we will be proud of continuing our legacy as Indiana’s largest private, family-owned bank for generations to come.”

Kafka said the occasion celebrated Centier Bank’s commitment and dedication to serving Greater Indianapolis, sharing plans for additional branch openings at 86th and Ditch in late spring, location expansion in Carmel, as well as opening in Brownsburg before the end of the year.

“The biggest challenge when opening a new bank branch is to make it successful,” Kafka expressed. “I know Centier will be successful because of everybody here today, and the caring relationships we have cultivated in Indianapolis. We have a remarkable team leading this location, who are committed to providing excellent service and to serve the community through volunteerism and outreach.”

The ribbon-cutting ceremony also included a $5,000 community donation to Morning Light, Inc., a free housing service for terminally ill patients in need end of life care. Brittany Babbitt and Madison Wood-Gonzalez of Morning Light gave thanks on behalf of the organization and its residents.

“We provide round-the-clock caregiving, private rooms, and three home-cooked meals a day to our residents who are at end of life, and we do all of this through the generosity of our community partners like Centier,” Babbitt said. “I believe it is a testament to Centier’s purpose-driven culture that our organization decided they would be a great partner for our financial needs, and we are glad to call ourselves a Centier client because of their ability to advocate for us.”

The new branch features two convenient drive-through lanes and a drive-up ATM, a night deposit box, three teller stations and a self-service coin machine inside the lobby. Centier’s signature Big Blue Bow is adorning the building to signify the grand opening and passersby can enjoy the symbol of Centier’s grand opening and investment in the Indianapolis community for a few more weeks.
