Welcome to First American Bank

We are very pleased to announce today that Southport Bank officially became part of the First American Bank family. This merger will extend the tradition of community banking and personalized service that has characterized Southport and First American Bank for many years. The addition of the Southport branches will bring First American’s branch count to 53 and extends the franchise beyond the Chicago metropolitan area into Wisconsin.

We anticipate conversion, merging our systems and re-branding the buildings, to occur in February. While Southport is now officially part of the First American Bank family, Southport customers are only able to conduct banking business at the three current Southport branches until after the conversion. The Calendar of Events will be updated as developments arise. Our goal is to provide a smooth transition, while providing access to more sophisticated products and services that will make your day-to-day banking more convenient than ever.  

Your banking will continue as usual with the same staff and personalized service you have come to expect. Russ Weyers will continue in his leadership role as the new First American Bank Wisconsin Regional President.

At First American you are the center of attention and your financial well-being is our first priority. For more than 40 years we have delivered proven expertise in banking and wealth management services to individuals, families, businesses and organizations. Our long-standing record of strength and stability has enabled us to grow to $4 billion in assets, with trust assets under management of $2.3 billion. You can look forward to a solid, long-term relationship with a bank you can trust.

We’ll be communicating with you in the weeks to come. In the meantime, if you have any questions, please feel free to call your banker at 262-942-1111.

Welcome! We look forward to serving you for many years to come.


Thomas E. Wells, IV
