Naperville Bank & Trust Spotlight on Business Success

When Nick Ryan of Marquette Companies approached Dave Miller about doing a high-quality hospitality concept at Water Street, Dave did his homework. Over years of conceptualizing, Miller developed a plan to fill a need in the community.

It was a group effort. "My advisors included local leaders, friends and family. My wife Josie kept saying "Do it!", says Miller. "Marquette and Naperville Bank & Trust believed in the concept. Our relationships with local not-for-profits, the Chamber of Commerce and our customers helped drive the decision to go forward."

"We’ve had 21 years of gradual growth with Chef by Request but I’ve never made a financial leap like this. With Elements at Water Street, I’m jumping in with both feet."Dave Miller, Managing Partner, Elements at Water Street

Now Miller is building Elements to serve Naperville for weddings, fundraisers, corporate meetings and more in the heart of Downtown. Elements will offer a beautiful contemporary, rustic-urban space accommodating from 50 for a meeting to 250 for a dinner-dance to 300 for cocktails. Menus will feature organic, chef-inspired, locally-sourced cuisine.

"A bank should be people of integrity who recognize your potential and are committed to your success," Miller says. "Naperville Bank & Trust understands our finances and our business. They understand who I am and what I do. It’s about more than just the numbers. They value our relationship, and so do I."
