Rosemont-based Wintrust Financial Corporation has been named a winner of the 2021 Torch Award for Ethics by the Better Business Bureau (BBB) of Chicago and Northern Illinois in recognition of its fair, honest, and ethical business practices.

The BBB's Torch Award celebrates companies that demonstrate outstanding integrity, ethics, and overall marketplace excellence. Given to just nine businesses in the Chicago metro area in 2021, Wintrust was selected as the sole winner in the "Large Company" category by a panel of independent reviewers who assessed applicants according to four categories: character, culture, customer and community.


"It's an honor to be recognized by the Better Business Bureau as a leader in business ethics in the greater Chicago community," said Edward J. Wehmer, Founder and CEO of Wintrust. "Because our work is so collaborative, trust is essential to our ability to deliver results on behalf of our customers and business partners. As we enter into our 30th year as a company, we're as committed to serving the communities in which we operate as we were from the beginning, and this award proves it."
