Evansville-based Old National Bancorp has named Chief Executive Officer Jim Ryan the company’s new board chairman. Ryan succeeds longtime Old National CEO Bob Jones, who retired last May.
Ryan will manage his new chairman responsibilities in addition to his current duties as Old National CEO. Former Indiana Lieutenant Governor Becky Skillman will retain her role as independent lead director of the Old National Board.
“It is a great honor to be named Old National Board Chairman and continue our company’s long-standing commitment to passionately serve our clients, team members, shareholders and communities,” said Ryan. “I’m particularly humbled to succeed Bob Jones. His influence on Old National – and on me, personally – is immeasurable, and I’m honored to continue his legacy.”
