• Mt. Carmel Coach Frank Lenti Speaks to Alumni at Local Business Networking Event

    Marquette Bank hosts business after-hours event featuring Mt. Carmel football coach, Frank Lenti, for alumni and local business leaders 

    Orland Park, IL (June 18, 2013) – Marquette Bank, a locally-owned neighborhood bank, recently hosted Mt. Carmel head football coach, Frank Lenti, at a business after-hours networking event at the bank branch located at 99th and Western Ave. in Beverly. Coach Lenti spoke before a group of over 30 attendees consisting of local business leaders and alumni from Mt. Carmel High School.

    Lenti graduated from Mt. Carmel High School in 1969 and received his undergraduate degree from Loyola University and a graduate degree from Chicago State University. He was named Mt. Carmel’s 18th head football coach in April of 1984 and has compiled a state record of 326 wins and only 59 losses during his 28-year career. He led the Caravan to 10 state championships, 15 state title game appearances and qualified for 27 straight state tournaments.

    Lenti’s message to attendees addressed issues of teamwork and ethics as well as guidance on how to achieve success and happiness in life. On the topics of teamwork and ethics, he suggested that winning more often than not is the result of a “we thing,” not a “me thing,” and to “always do the right thing.” Lenti also gave the following takeaway advice, “When you read good books and associate with good people, good things are more likely to happen to you.”

    “We were fortunate to have Frank Lenti as our guest speaker and a lot of his successful approach to coaching and shaping young minds is applicable to managing employees and winning in the business setting,” Ed Munin, Director of Marquette Wealth Management, said.

    The business after-hours networking event also featured two representatives from Marquette Bank’s Beverly branch, including: Tom Grogan, Branch Manager, and Martin Chavez, Marquette Wealth Management Senior Financial Advisor. The event was sponsored by Marquette Wealth Management and Mt. Carmel High School. Marquette Bank has worked with Mt. Carmel High School in the past to sponsor other events for local business leaders and school alumni. Marquette Wealth Management works to develop retirement and financial plans for local individuals and small business owners through free financial reviews.
