Industrial Bank’s “Next BIG Moment”
WASHINGTON, DC — (May 6, 2016) Industrial Bank, the oldest community development bank in the metropolitan Washington region, is undergoing renovation at its historical banking center located at 2000 11th Street, NW, Washington, DC. As part of the renovations, the historic clock positioned atop the Bank’s flagship location was removed for refurbishment on Saturday April 30, 2016. The clock serves as a monument for the historic U street corridor. It has permanently claimed its place in history and remains a symbol of the Bank’s continuing legacy. While the clock is being refurbished, renovations inside the center are in the final stages.
“As the President and CEO of Industrial Bank, I am personally excited about the renovation project, which reflects the revitalization within the surrounding communities,” says B. Doyle Mitchell, Jr. Industrial Bank is standing strong and continues to provide service with incomparable customer care.

Operation Hoops Cares
New Orleans Pelicans NBA Player Tyreke Evans in collaboration with Knowledge Speaks, Industrial Bank and other sponsors launch Operation Hoops Cares. This program was created as a Goodwill Mission for the students of New Orleans to go to the Philippines to provide their counter parts and families, with hope, understanding and fun from the United States. Through Operation Hoops Cares student ambassadors from New Orleans and the Philippines will have the opportunity to represent their respective communities while expressing the kinship they feel through this cultural exchange and the celebration of the human spirit.
The overall objective is to support the massive on-going relief, rehabilitation and resettlement mission for the millions of displaced survivors from last year’s super-typhoon Haiyan, including families with infants and children made homeless and at-risk of disease and hunger.

As a business partner, Industrial Bank understands that
many entrepreneurs find it preferable to develop relationships with a local
financial service provider because that provider has a vested interest in
supporting local businesses and networking events to make meaningful
contributions to the community by providing employment and financial stability.
In an effort to continue to serve as a key
catalyst, delivering support for small business growth and development,
Industrial Bank has aligned itself with numerous initiatives and government
One such example of this
commitment was The Bank’s sponsorship of the inaugural Influencers’ Brunch
during the BET Honors weekend organized by the Ascension Three Leadership Group
to celebrate leaders in the world of business, entertainment, sports and
politics who use the weight of their influence to impact the world for good.
