This prestigious honor is reserved for a select group of Central Indiana women. Ms. Lorch is being recognized for her outstanding work across the five categories of professional excellence, leadership, vision, community service, and mentoring.
“I am thrilled to see Nicole honored with such an esteemed acknowledgement within our local Indianapolis community,” said David Becker, President and Chief Executive Officer of First Internet Bank. “I’ve had the pleasure of working with Nicole since she was right out of college. It’s been a privilege and an honor to watch her grow personally and professionally over the years, and this recognition is a true testament to the influential person she has become.”
