Testimonials

I moved from Virginia to Chicago in December of 1991 and was on Devon Avenue doing my grocery shopping. As I was crossing the street with grocery bags in my hand, I saw the bank sign and decided to check out if they had any openings. I was directed to the HR department by the receptionist on the first floor. The only opening at that time in the bank was for a teller. I was interviewed and offered the position. A year later I got transferred to the retail banking department. In 1995, I was promoted as an officer of the bank; a few years later I was given the title of International Banking officer. After a few years, I was promoted to Assistant Vice President for my contribution towards creating the Islamic Financing department. Due to the achievements and growth of the department, I was promoted to Vice President. Since 2017, I have been the Senior Vice President of the department I helped established. In the coming years, I look forward to continuing to grow the Islamic Financing department.

Senior Vice President of Islamic Financing

I started my career at Devon Bank in 2004, and I am proud to say that I will soon be celebrating my 15th anniversary working at Devon Bank. One thing I like about Devon Bank is that I was given the opportunity to work in different departments. I started at Devon Bank as a teller and 5 months later I moved to the Bookkeeping Department; I honestly liked everything about bookkeeping. Three years later I became the Bookkeeping Supervisor and enjoyed learning a new skill. After 11 years, I was given the opportunity to move to the Accounting Department as an Account Reconciling Specialist (ARS). Working in accounting gave me a better understanding on how finance works. My experience as an ARS led me to the opportunity to work in the Operations/Bookkeeping Department as a Senior Operations Service and Branch Support Specialist. I realized that Operations Services is really something I like to do and I can’t thank Devon Bank enough for giving me the many opportunities to learn new things and gain more knowledge. I truly enjoy coming to work in such a family and friendly atmosphere.

I have worked for Devon Bank for four years. It is a pleasure to work for a community bank that values diversity of all kinds. In my time at Devon Bank, I have advanced both my education and career.

Jennifer Wiedemann
Vice President of Deposit Operations and BSA Officer

I joined the Bank in December of 2017 as a Personal Banker. And within my second year of service, I was promoted to Personal Banker II.

Devon Bank is a community bank. Small in size, where employees get to see different operations and areas of work. At Devon Bank, I have had the opportunity to learn and see various parts of many operations. Further, it has tremendously helped me develop my experience and skills.

The people that I work with are helpful, friendly and, most importantly, are team players. I love that we serve a diversified market and our organization is a mirror image of the market we serve.
