“I could not be more pleased than to have a person of John’s experience, sophistication and values joining our Boards,” 1st Source Bank Chairman and CEO Christopher Murphy III said. “He not only has been running the business and financial side of the largest enterprise in our region, but has been deeply involved in the economic development of our community. Over many years, I have worked with John in community endeavors and have often sought his advice. He has always been thoughtful, knowledgeable, insightful and often prescient. He will bring tremendous value to our boards and to the future of 1st Source.”
