Location: 12600 Highway 41 North, Evansville
In business for: 4 years

Tell us a little bit about your business.
First Financial Bank is the oldest bank in Indiana and the 5th oldest in the nation. We are headquartered in Terre Haute, and have banking centers throughout Western Indiana and Eastern Illinois. Our first bank opened in 1834. Since then, we have been perfecting our banking practices, customer service, and notability. We truly pride ourselves on our ability to put our customers at ease by giving them the unique personalized service they need.

In your opinion, what are your top three ingredients for success?
You have to surround yourself with positive people, get involved with your community, and find a healthy balance between work and family.

How do you want your customers to feel after leaving the banking center?
It’s important our customers know they are our top priority. It is our goal to help our customers make money, save money and save time. We want them to leave with a burden lifted from their shoulders.

What are three things you couldn’t go without each day?
I couldn’t go without our amazing loyal customers, positive and up-beat staff, and of course, my supportive family.

What’s your favorite part of your job?
Having customers leave happy and satisfied is the best part of my job.

Have you had any hurdles to overcome?
First Financial Bank has ben around for a very long time. However, being open in Evansville for just four years, our brand isn’t as easily recognizable as in some of our other markets. First Financial is a great bank and we work very hard at getting the word out.

Any noteworthy events coming up?
Later in 4th quarter, we are conducting a toy drive for the Salvation Army. Check out our website for further details!
