Midland States Bank Opens Wealth Management Office in Downtown Decatur

EFFINGHAM, ILLINOIS – October 5, 2015 – Midland States Bank is pleased to announce the opening of its new Wealth Management office in the historic Olde City Hall building located at 240 South Main Street in Decatur, Illinois.

“Midland is very excited to be a partner in the renovation of this historic building and the renaissance of the downtown district,” said Ron Drane, Managing Director of Midland’s Decatur Wealth Management office.  “Not only does this move demonstrate our commitment to Decatur, but it is gratifying taking a building with a proud heritage and adapting it to today’s business needs. The renovation of this remarkable building truly emphasizes Midland’s slogan of “Great strength. More heart.”

The original City Hall structure was built in 1879, with additions made in 1979, where the Midland office is currently located. After the many years of deconstruction, the City of Decatur approached Main Place Properties, current owners of the building, to consider renovating the building as a part of the city’s goal to revitalize the downtown district. Midland joined Main Place Properties as the anchor tenant for the renovation. The updates to the building included floor to ceiling windows as a prominent design element, interior upgrades and the addition of elevators for easy access and ADA compliance.

Midland serves its Wealth Management clients from 11 locations, including offices in Decatur, Bloomington and Rockford, Illinois, and Milwaukee, Wisconsin.  Additional Wealth Management representatives are located within selected Midland States Bank locations.

Office hours for the new Decatur office are Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and by phone at 217-412-8586.
