KeyBank expands footprint in Western Michigan


KeyBank has established a permanent office in Grand Rapids, Michigan. KeyBank's purpose in Western Michigan, as well as in all of its markets, is centered on transformative philanthropy and community support. To support Pathway Home, KeyBank invested $10,000 in Mel Trotter Ministries in Grand Rapids, Michigan in 2022. The KeyBank Foundation also awarded a $15,000 grant to Family Promise of Grand Rapids to fill gaps in the community's emergency response for families in need of shelter right now.

Furthermore, KeyBank is honored to be the Presenting Sponsor of the 2023 Grand Rapids Gran Fondo, an 80-mile bike route that follows the picturesque Grand River valley through farm and small village scenery before reaching the bayous and lake scenery preceding the turn-around point on Lake Michigan. This year's event, which begins and ends in Downtown Grand Rapids, is expected to attract over 2,000 riders. West Michigan Trails, which works to improve the quality of life by advancing the regional trails movement, benefits from the Gran Fondo.

The new office, located at 177 Ottawa Ave. NW in The Waters Center, is another step in KeyBank's expansion and growth in Western Michigan. KeyBank's Commercial Banking, Business Banking, Wealth Management, Small Business Association (SBA) Lending, and Residential Mortgage operations in Western Michigan will be based there. Grand Rapids Mayor Rosalynn Bliss and Angela Mago, President of Key Commercial Bank, attended the grand opening celebration on March 22, 2023.

“With the opening of this new office, we are excited to firmly establish KeyBank’s presence in downtown Grand Rapids and Western Michigan,” said Michael Sytsma, KeyBank Western Michigan Market President and Commercial Sales Leader.

“We are a Main Street Bank with Wall Street capabilities and look forward to serving Western Michigan while providing financial services and resources that will help our community grow.”

“I am excited to see KeyBank open a permanent location in Grand Rapids,” said Mayor Rosalynn Bliss. “KeyBank has a heart for community and are actively engaged in efforts to make our City a better place for everyone. And I look forward to partnering more with them in the future.”
