Munster, IN – John J. Diederich, executive vice president of Peoples Bank and Northwest Indiana Bancorp, recently celebrated 40 years in banking and financial services.
Diederich began his career in community banking in 1974 with the Commercial Bank of Crown Point as controller. He subsequently held positions at Gainer Bank and First Chicago NBD overseeing the trust, wealth and private banking areas, as well as commercial lending for all of Northwest Indiana. In 2000, he was appointed regional president of Lake and Porter
Counties with Bank One, which became JP Morgan Chase, and joined Peoples nine years later.
“I’m fortunate to have a career that, along the way, has provided tremendous opportunities to meet and build meaningful relationships with so many people. In many cases, these relationships have developed into lifelong friendships. It gives me great satisfaction knowing that I have helped others reach their financial goals,” said Diederich.
Diederich is actively involved in many community service organizations, most recently serving as a trustee of the John W. Anderson Foundation and managing director of the Northwest Indiana Forum. In 2008, he was presented with the Sagamore of the Wabash award for his distinguished service to the state of Indiana and contributions to Hoosier heritage.
Peoples Bank has a 105-year tradition of community banking with 14 locations throughout Lake and Porter Counties. With over $1 billion between Bank assets and Wealth Management assets under management, Peoples is recognized as a Top 200 Community Bank in America and offers a dynamic menu of personal, business and electronic banking products and services, including small business lending and wealth management services, to help customers meet their financial goals.
