Silver Lake Bank opens new Overland Park loan production office with a Feb. 1 ribbon cutting
TOPEKA, KS – Jan. 17, 2023 — Silver Lake Bank is pleased to announce the ribbon cutting for its newest location in Overland Park. The new loan production office is led by Market President John Geiger, a longtime banker and lender in the Kansas City area.
“This office underscores the business growth we’ve experienced in the Kansas City area. There is a hunger for a strong community bank with a focus on helping businesses grow,” said Patrick Gideon, President, and Chief Executive Officer (“CEO”), which is celebrating its 55th year as a family-owned bank. “We were fortunate to connect with the perfect person to be our market president. John Geiger is an experienced and trusted banker, lender, and market president in the Kansas City area, and we couldn’t be happier to have him leading our new location in Overland Park.”
Geiger is well established in the Greater Kansas City market with more than 30 years of commercial banking experience and previously served as Market President and Chief Credit Officer for two other financial institutions until each one sold. He is a graduate of the University of Nebraska at Lincoln with a major in Business Administration with a minor in Economics. John and his wife, Clare, reside in Overland Park. The couple has four children – three college graduates and one at the University of Kansas.
“One of the highest gratifications of my job is being a financial partner with our customers to help them grow their business, Geiger said. I also enjoy and much prefer working for a local family-owned bank rather than a big bank because I know our services can be more impactful, plus being able to make decisions locally which results in faster turnaround. All of those attributes make Silver Lake Bank the perfect bank for this market.”
The new loan production office is located at 7206 College Boulevard near Metcalf Avenue, just south of I-435. A ribbon cutting with the Overland Park Chamber of Commerce at the new office is 11 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 1. The public is welcome to attend.
Silver Lake Bank, which is celebrating its 55th year of Gideon family-ownership, operates six customer facilities across Kansas in Topeka, Lawrence, Overland Park and Silver Lake. With assets of more than $400 million, Silver Lake Bank headquartered in Topeka, offers a full range of retail, business, and municipal banking services.
