seven years. A graduate of Indiana University’s School of Business and the

virtually every banking capacity in the nearly forty years of his exemplary
career. Before joining the Bloomfield State Bank team, he was president and
board member at Union Bank and Trust Company, owned by First Financial Bancorp

profitable unit of First Financial’s holdings. Mr. McNeely spent 18 years as a

is a past member of Jackson County’s Industrial Development Board, and he was
instrumental in structuring the necessary incentives which helped persuade many
