Langford will oversee First Financial's 45 Indiana locations and lead the bank's business development efforts, as well as its consumer, commercial and wealth management teams.

"It's an exciting time in Indiana," he said. "There's positive energy and growth happening throughout the state. I'm grateful for this opportunity to lead First Financial in my home state. We are proud to be part of Indiana, and we look forward to continuing to invest and grow here."

Langford, who is based out of Indianapolis, also serves at the executive level as the consumer banking president across the bank's footprint in Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky.
