Member Profile: First Financial Bank

By First Financial Bank | | 4.15.24

As a business owner, it’s important to find a banking partner that sees you as more than an account number. First Financial Bank has been serving businesses since 1863. It has built a reputation for offering the resources of a big national institution, with the personable handshake culture of a small neighborhood bank.

First Financial Bank offers comprehensive solutions tailored to a business’s unique needs. Businesses can take advantage of business lending, account, deposit services, wealth management, and employee services. Our financial leaders also have experience in several specialty lending fields, including asset-based lending, food & agribusiness, equipment leasing & financing, employee stock ownership plans (ESOPs), commercial real estate, and sponsor finance.

“I think what sets First Financial is its focus on the relationship,” says Senior Vice President and Indianapolis Commercial Market President Jake Sappenfield. “We know that one size does not fit all. Our Relationship Managers get to know the business, its employees, its history, and its goals. They understand the value of recommending specific products that serve the business’s unique goals.”

As First Financial has grown, so too have the options it can offer its clients. Many enjoy the holistic support and streamlined cash flow processes offered through First’s treasury management services. The f1RST WORKlife program focuses on employee wellbeing which can noticeably increase talent acquisition and retention. First’s capital markets trading firm, Bannockburn, acts as an extension of the team and provides a tailored perspective on market activity, direction, and strategy. All this and more, delivered with the personal attention and flexibility you expect from First Financial.
