Talmer. It's a different kind of name for a bank, isn't it? Well, we're a very different kind of bank. Our name combines the last name of my grandfather (Talmage) with the last name of the grandfather of Gary Torgow, chairman of Talmer Bancorp, Inc. (Merzon). Our grandfathers were two remarkable humanitarians who never met, but shared a common purpose - to help others and to enrich the lives of their communities. How do the lives of men who lived decades ago affect Talmer customers today? Our bank isn't just carrying our grandparents' names, it's continuing their commitment to serve - to support local community service efforts; to take care of our customers promptly and with an unmatched level of personal service. Yes there are other banks that promise such things. But we have something more at stake that inspires us to actually deliver - our family heritage.
