In 1991, Wintrust’s current CEO and one of the company’s founders, Ed Wehmer, set up shop in a northern Chicago suburb with a simple goal: to provide an alternative to the big banks. Now, more than twenty-five years and 175 locations later, we’ve stayed true to that original mission.
We don't just do one thing. Our banks, companies and divisions specialize in a variety of services to make us a one-stop shop for any financial need.
Our company is unique, and so are the people who work with us and for us. That’s why we’re passionate about being the type of company that is committed to providing opportunities for everyone.
We believe in making our communities better. Our philanthropic focus is part of our foundation.
