First Midwest Bank Earns Spot On Two Prestigious Forbes Customer Recognition Lists

CHICAGO, IL, July 1, 2020 – First Midwest Bank today announced it has been named to Forbes Magazine's 2020 "Best-in-State Banks" and "World's Best Banks" lists:

  • Ranked #2 on the "Best-in-State Banks" list for banks in Illinois
  • Ranked #14 on the World's Best Banks list among 75 U.S. banks

To determine both lists, Forbes partnered with market research firm Statista to survey customers for their opinions on their current and former banking relationships. The banks were rated on overall recommendations and satisfaction, as well as five subdimensions (trust, terms and conditions, branch services, digital services and financial advice).

"We are honored to receive these recognitions, as they reflect the excellence our colleagues deliver to our clients every day," said Mark Sander, President and Chief Operating Officer of First Midwest. "I am especially proud of how our colleagues have stood up during the COVID-19 pandemic—a time when our mission of helping clients achieve financial success is now more important than ever. It is a true testament to the caliber of our talent and to our culture of dedication to our clients, communities and each other."
