More than a dozen Indiana banks are included in an industry publication’s list of the Top 200 Community Banks. The institutions are ranked by American Banker magazine based on return on equity average over the course of the last three years.

Chief Executive Officer Karen Gregerson says "we are pleased to rank in the Top 200 performing banks in the nation for the third year running and to progressively move up in the rank each consecutive year. The bank’s outstanding performance is the result of the focus and commitment of our Board of Directors, our management team, and our entire staff, who are all to be commended for our performance."
