DETROIT, June 29, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — (NASDAQ: ONB) Old National Bank celebrated the opening of its first Metro Detroit-area commercial banking office in June with a launch event at the Detroit Athletic Center.

“The team, many long-time friends, is tremendous and the response from the community has been fantastic,” said Metro Detroit Market President Rick Hampson. “We’re here, and we’re here to stay. Our plan is to build something really great.”
