Old Plank Trail Community Bank recently announced the addition of Frank Poppie to the Old Plank Trail Community Bank Board of Directors.

Frank is a founding principal and Senior Vice President of The Horton Group since 1982. Now one of the largest privately held insurance agencies in the Midwest, The Horton Group features six offices in four states.

Frank has found his niche to be in construction, transportation and logistics, though the clients he has amassed during his tenure include businesses of all kinds. Although there is no single way to keep a client, Frank maintains that his simple approach has worked throughout the years. “Give them a lot of service,” Frank concluded. “Pay attention to what they need. Act as an advisor, not a salesman. The next thing you know, these clients become your friends and you’re going to ball games and golfing together.”

Frank is an 18 year resident of Orland Park and has worked in the Village for the past 30 years.

Paul Slade, President of Old Plank Trail Community Bank, said, “I am delighted to have Frank join our Board. His integrity, knowledge, and market presence will be a great addition to our Bank. Frank will be especially helpful as our new banking location in Orland Park gains a greater presence in the Village.”
