 The award honors a woman in banking “who is community-active, achievement-oriented and contributes to team success.” 

Arnold joined Home Bank in 1985. Since then, she’s served as branch manager, vice president of retail banking and chief operations officer. She is past president of the IBA’s Future Leadership Division and a current member of the IBA board of directors.

Arnold has a bachelor’s degree from Franklin College, Ind., and an MBA from Indiana Wesleyan University, Marion. She graduated from the American Bankers Association’s Stonier Graduate School of Banking and the ABA’s National Commercial Lending School. 

“[Arnold] is an incredible advocate for not just women but everyone she comes in contact with,” one of her nominators said. “Lisa is passionate about encouraging others to grow personally. She looks at every opportunity to inspire others to be who they are created to be, and to learn and grow right where they are. As president and CEO, [Arnold] works tirelessly to make sure every employee knows how much she values each of them and is ready to help each one grow, achieving whatever goal they have set whether personally or professionally.”

The award was sponsored by Indianapolis-based law firm Krieg DeVault LLP.
