The Benevolent Banker
This week's series of Patch Portraits also features the Winnetka fire chief and Niles' "Uncle Pete."
Executive VP at Glenview State Bank and an involved Glenview resident, David Kreiman's community roots run deep.
"It's a different beast," said Glenview State Bank Executive Vice President and involved community member David Kreiman, of the bank he has worked at for almost 20 years.
As Executive Vice President, Kreiman mostly oversees different aspects of the customer service side of the business, focusing on how the bank can generally better serve its clients.
But Kreiman sees his and the bank's role in the community as larger than just serving customer needs. The bank regularly sponsors numerous local events and organizations, something Kreiman said is just part of how GSB does business.
"This bank is a family owned bank," Kreiman explained. "The ownership of the bank is very philanthropic."
In his years with Glenview State Bank, Kreiman has had the opportunity to work with a variety of charitable organizations including Youth Services of Glenview, the United Way, the Fourth of July Commission and Rebuilding Together, among others.
One of Kreiman's fondest memories is with United Way Glenview-Golf, he said.
"Every Thanksgiving we would go to Glenkirk, which is a housing organization for kids with developmental disabilities, and we would serve them Thanksgiving dinner--that was an incredible experience."
