What People Are Saying


“The PrivateBank was in the midst of integrating a recent acquisition at a stage where we needed to give equal attention to preparing our employees and preparing our systems. We turned to Lori Igleski and Fifth Star for assistance in the “employee readiness” aspect of this undertaking.

With Fifth Star’s counsel, we created a communication process within the business unit to control and facilitate the flow of information before and after the systems conversion, so that employees had one source and management could ensure all communication was properly vetted before distribution. Lori also brought her considerable banking expertise to bear in giving direction to a new community banking business unit within The PrivateBank. With Fifth Star’s assistance, we were able to convert our systems and complete the integration of the two banks with employees who were prepared, informed and ready to ensure minimal customer impact.”

“After a very successful career in commercial banking in which she served in multiple roles, Lori Igleski transferred her skills to the non-profit world, taking on a very important role at Chicago 2016, the city's bid to host the 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games. At Chicago 2016, Lori was responsible for securing 78,000 hotel rooms for the summer of 2016, managing our volunteer force of more than 26,000 individuals, and planning and staging important bid-related events.

Lori and her team take a pragmatic approach to solving problems, whether they are addressing business issues or enabling non-profit organizations, to better accomplish their civic mission. Lori's work ethic, organization skills, and ability to work collaboratively with others should enable Fifth Star Consulting to effectively serve clients in both the for-profit and non-profit sectors.”

“Lori’s work on Chicago’s bid for the Olympic and Paralympic Games was invaluable. She was comfortable working in different capacities, from executing some of the largest events we’ve seen in Chicago to directing our outreach towards Chicago’s hospitality industry.

In an atmosphere that was fast-paced and sometimes unpredictable, Lori demonstrated herself to be a committed leader that could always be counted on. Being able to work with Lori was a great experience. I’m confident that she will achieve great success in working for the civic community of Chicago.”

“Having worked with Lori Igleski in a very challenging high-performance environment, I can attest to her significant skill set as a leader and a strategic thinker. Lori has an extensive background in commercial and retail banking as well as bank operations. Her credit skills are exceptional. She has demonstrated outstanding ability to manage complex and large scale projects of all kinds. Furthermore, working with Lori and her close associates is a rewarding experience in that she is sensitive to the “people side” of the business. She is a good communicator. In short, there is no one I would recommend more highly to tackle a tough assignment or help any organization achieve success.”
