The time seemed right in 2005 for veteran banker Bill Broucek to retire. He was 70 years old and had a memorable career — he was the first international lender for Detroit-based NBD in the 1960s; he founded Citizens Trust Bank in Ann Arbor in 1974 and later sold it to Society Bank of Cleveland; and in 1996 he opened the Bank of Ann Arbor.
