Union Bank Opens New Loan Production Office in Portage

Grand Rapids, Michigan – June 9, 2023 – On Thursday, May 25th, Union Bank Board of Directors and employees, Southwest Michigan First, local elected officials and community members gathered together to celebrate the opening of the Banks’ first Kalamazoo-Portage area location at 515 East Centre Street in Portage.

Built in 1853, the Portage Historic District Home is now the home to the Banks’ new Loan Production Office. Staffed by Portage native Todd Uekert, Senior Vice President, Market President and Michael Kozak, Vice President, Director of Commercial Business Development - the facility is now open to the public by appointment only. Additional team members will be added to this location, including a Mortgage Banker, later this year.

Union Bank has been proud to call itself a truly local and proudly independent bank since opening in 1934. As local, independent West and Central Michigan businesses continue to navigate a rocky landscape, Union Bank's knowledgeable team is prepared to help them find financial success and be the go-to resource for the makers, builders and growers as well as the hard-working people that work for them.

“The West Michigan market offers many opportunities for growth. As we continue to grow and expand, we remain focused on serving commercial businesses and the agricultural sector as well as generations of local families in the community, just as we’ve done for nearly a century. Whether business, personal, deposits or loans, at Union Bank, we care about every facet of our customers’ needs, and our growth allows us to continue to inspire possibilities and open doors to opportunity,” said Union Bank President and Chief Executive Officer, Cortney Collison.
