The process of raising capital began one year ago when Farr created the holding group MiCommunity Bancorp and filed for Mi BANK’s charter. The $30 million necessary to open the bank was finalized and secured from more than 200 investors earlier this year. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp officially approved Mi BANK’s charter on Oct. 1, 2018.

Mi BANK was created to deliver a business banking experience unique in the industry. The bank offers a client-focused culture, delivering levels of service, responsiveness, flexibility, personalization, and speed unmatched by other banks.

«We are thrilled to officially open Mi BANK for business. The timing is right for a new business bank in southeast Michigan,» said Rob Farr, founder and CEO, Mi BANK. «Our local economy is strong. There is tremendous opportunity in this market.»

Farr, a banking industry veteran, founded Bank of Birmingham in 2006, where he also served as CEO. The bank was acquired by Bank of Ann Arbor in 2017. Mi BANK is the first de novo bank in the Midwest in 10 years.

«We believe there is an unmet need in the business lending community,» continued Farr. «Our goal is to offer a concierge banking experience for business customers. Each client will be assigned a personal banker who knows the ins and outs of their business and will anticipate their needs.»
