After thirty-eight years in various positions at the local community bank, Countryside Bank, Tom Boyle will be moving his expertise to the Board of Directors at First National Bank Brookfield where he will rejoin Dan Harrington and Mike Ryan.
Boyle was born in Visitation parish on the south side.  He is a graduate of Leo High School, St. Joseph's College, Western Illinois University, and the Graduate School of Banking at the University of Wisconsin. After school, Boyle began his career as a bank examiner for the State of Illinois in 1974, and then subsequently served as an auditor and loan officer at Ford City Bank from 1977 to 1982. He settled with his wife, Josephine, and four (now grown) children in Burr Ridge.
Boyle joined Countryside Bank in 1982, only a few years after its formation, as a loan officer.  He eventually became President in 1997 and Vice Chairman in 2009.  In addition to his work at Countryside Bank, he has served on numerous committees and been a member of countless organizations, including the American Banker's Association, the Illinois Banker's Association, and the Chicago Bankers Club. He has been instrumental in the Irish American community in the city, not only in terms of serving as a banker, but also as a member of Chicago Gaelic Park, where he sat on the Board of Directors for over twenty-five years and as President for three. He is a member of St. John of the Cross Parish in Western Springs.

 Please join us in congratulating him on a successful career at Countryside Bank and wishing him continued success at FNB Brookfield.
