Ten months after ground was broken for the new Nicolet Bank in downtown Sturgeon Bay, a June 11 ribbon cutting marked the completion of the handsome finished project.
The city closed a section of 4th Street outside the bank for festivities surrounding the bank’s ribbon cutting and grand opening.
Jamie Alberts, senior vice president of commercial banking, started the event by thanking all those involved in the construction, including Miron Construction and the many subcontractors. He also thanked customers and the bank’s 20 employees.
Sturgeon Bay Mayor David Ward said the city is grateful to the bank and its board of directors for making this investment in the city – not just with the new building, but also in support of nonprofits and community activities.
“We understand what our responsibility is,” said Bob Atwell, Nicolet Bank co-founder, chair and CEO. “We understand the trust that the people of Sturgeon Bay and of Door County have placed in this institution, that we are custodians of that trust, and the purpose is to honor that trust by serving effectively.”
There is no word yet on what will become of the old bank building across the street from the new bank.
