Community First Bank of Indiana (CFB) celebrated its grand opening and cut the ribbon for its newest
banking center at 9333 North Meridian Street, Suite 125, Indianapolis on Thursday, May 19 in
partnership with the Indy Chamber and OneZone Chamber of Commerce. As tradition with all CFB grand
openings, the bank presented a donation to a local nonprofit organization. They donated $2,500 to The
Advancement Center for Washington Township Schools by adopting two classrooms and contributing to
the teacher grant fund.
“Community First Bank has an ongoing teacher grant partnership with Westfield, Noblesville, and
Kokomo school foundations, and we are thrilled as we enter this area near 93rd & Meridian to add a
partnership with the local Washington Townships Schools,” said Romhaad Davis, Business Banking
Center Manager.
Since its local founding in Kokomo, IN in 2003, Community First Bank’s steady growth has been
attributed to overwhelming support for the vision of its unique way to do banking in its
communities – a bank that is locally owned, locally governed and staffed with experienced bankers.
“While we have great technology, we still believe relationships are built face to face,” said Robb
Blume, President and CEO.
Representatives from CFB’s SBA Lending (the bank is a preferred lender with the SBA), Commercial
Lending, Treasury Management, and Mortgage Lending teams were present during the event, as it was
a great opportunity to get to know their neighbors and fellow Chamber members.
“We are tremendously excited to be opening our first full-service banking facility in Indianapolis
and our fourth new office in the surrounding area since 2019. We look forward to serving the
citizens of Marion County and Hamilton County, as an independent community bank, for many
years to come,” said Blume.
