Community Bank of Elmhurst welcomes two well-known Elmhurst residents to its board.
W. Peter Daniels, president of Elmhurst Memorial Hospital, and Maryann Gorski, owner of K & T Colors, join the board headed by Chairman William Gooch Jr.
"(Daniels and Gorski) bring business experience, civic experience and resident experience regarding Elmhurst, which is what our bank is all about,” Gooch said.
Daniels came to Elmhurst from Meridian Health, a network of five hospitals in New Jersey. He served as president of Ocean Medical Center for eight years and has more than 25 years of hospital and administrative experience. He has been in Elmhurst for just more than a year. He said he has been seeking opportunities to become more involved locally.
Daniels has degrees from the University of Notre Dame and Long Island University. In 2006, he earned board certification in healthcare management as a Fellow of the American College of Healthcare Executives.
Gorski has owned and managed K & T Colors since 1986 along with her mother, Loretta Kalina. The business, located at 568 S. York St. in Elmhurst, specializes in custom framing and art supplies. K & T underwent extensive expansion and remodeling in 2010 and is a destination business in the York and Vallette area. Gorski is a member and past president of the Rotary Club of Elmhurst, a commissioner on the Elmhurst Economic Development Board, associate board vice president of the Elmhurst Art Museum and a member of Elmhurst: College & Community. Gorski is a graduate of University of Illinois.
