Chairman Bruce W. Taylor represents the third generation of the Taylor family’s involvement with Cole Taylor Bank, Chicago’s sixth-largest* commercial bank. Since joining the family-owned and operated bank in 1978, Mr. Taylor has helped redefine the company’s commercial banking strategy and develop key initiatives.

Mr. Taylor became president of Cole Taylor Bank in 1994 and, in that capacity, directed the bank’s business units. In 2008, he set in motion a transformation of the company that has doubled the size of its commercial banking business and resulted in the development of national platforms in Asset Based Lending and Mortgage Banking.
