Former President of Citibank Illinois Lands at Urban Partnership
Former President of Citibank Illinois Darryl Hendricks has come out of retirement to become director of consumer banking at Chicago-based Urban Partnership Bank. A Harlem native, Hendricks spent 30 years with Citibank, the last 10 of them as Illinois president. “I'm going back to the kind of community I once came out of... We want to be a reasonable alternative to payday loans and check cashing operations in our marketplace,” Hendricks said. He's the latest African-American veteran of larger Chicago financial institutions to join Urban Partnership in order to support lending in low-income urban neighborhoods. CEO William Farrow is a veteran of First Chicago Corp. and Chief Banking Officer Levoi Brown came from GE Capital.
