Tell us about yourself and how you got involved with INB?

My name is Angie Zindars and I have lived in and around the Champaign area most of my life. I’ve been a part of the local banking community for almost 20 years and made the move to work for INB in November 2023.  I was looking for a place where I could use my banking knowledge and management skills; INB had the community banking and team feel that I was looking for,and I’ve been very happy here.

What is your exact title and what does that job entail?

I am the AVP/Branch Manager for our Champaign branch. I think that I’m very fortunate when it comes to “a day in the life of a Branch Manager” for me here at INB.  I get to do a little bit of everything.  From starting the morning with our employee huddle to talk about what needs to happen that day, to going through reports, to scheduling meetings or lunches with potential customers, to the day-to-day customer service of helping current customers with their banking needs.  We also sprinkle in community events like attending the recent fundraiser for the Champaign Firefighters Benevolent Fund, local Trivia nights, as well as our involvement with CCP and Chamber events.

What is your favorite part about working at INB?

INB is very dedicated to serving our customers, and we take pride in building long-term relationships with them. I love that my staff is always willing to go the extra mile to help our customers with any of their banking needs.  We always ask the question to our customers: “What are some financial goals that you’d like to accomplish?”  With their answers, we do our best to provide them with INB products that will help them meet their goals.

How do you think being located in Downtown Champaign serves your business?

Being a part of the Downtown Champaign community allows us to be close to the action. Close proximity to local restaurants, shops, and other businesses allows us to be visible and accessible.

What is your favorite part about working in Downtown Champaign?

As somewhat of a “foodie” I love being close to all the local downtown restaurants!  Being within walking distance, and being able to go to lunch with friends, coworkers, as well as customers is a big plus!
