Salin Bank President Kit Stolen resigns

Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

One of Indiana’s best-known bankers is stepping down as president of Salin Bank.

Alvin “Kit” Stolen joined the Indianapolis-based bank in August 2009 with big plans to boost the family-owned institution's presence in the center of the state. The bank, with $750 million in assets, has a significant presence in south-central and northern Indiana. The major Indianapolis expansion never materialized.

“While we’ll certainly miss Kit and the leadership he provided, Salin Bank is in a prime position to continue its extraordinary momentum and growth,” said William Salin II, the bank's chairman and CEO. Salin said he will assume Stolen’s duties.

Stolen is best known as the former CEO of Indianapolis-based Union Federal Bank. He spent five years there before helping orchestrate its $321 million sale to Ohio-based Sky Financial Group in the fall of 2006. Just a few months later, another Buckeye bank, Huntington Bancshares Inc., gobbled up Sky.

Salin operates 23 branches serving Burlington, Columbus, Delphi, Edinburgh, Fishers, Flora, Fort Wayne, Galveston, Gas City, Indianapolis, Kokomo, Lafayette, Logansport, Marion, Walton and West Lafayette.

  • Salin Bank
    CEO-COB and now prez. I know there's a really funny acronym in this. Class...any help? Buller?
  • Stolen
    A guy named "Stolen" working for a bank, just doesn't sound right....
  • Overbanked and underserved
    We have WAY too many banks in the Indianapolis area; yet the ability to borrow money remains small. Each bank wants low-interest deposits, makes its credit decisions out-of-town or out-of-state (NBofI being probably the only exception) and spends millions advertising "we're the bank for you." It simply can not continue, the model can't support itself.

    1. If what you stated is true, then this article is entirely inaccurate. "State sells bonds" is same as "State borrows money". Supposedly the company will "pay for them". But since we are paying the company, we are still paying for this road with borrowed money, even though the state has $2 billion in the bank.

    2. Andrew hit the nail on the head. AMTRAK provides terrible service and that is why the state has found a contractor to improve the service. More trips, on-time performance, better times, cleanliness and adequate or better restrooms. WI-FI and food service will also be provided. Transit from outlying areas will also be provided. I wouldn't take it the way it is but with the above services and marketing of the service,ridership will improve and more folks will explore Indy and may even want to move here.

    3. They could take the property using eminent domain and save money by not paying the church or building a soccer field and a new driveway. Ctrwd has monthly meetings open to all customers of the district. The meetings are listed and if the customers really cared that much they would show. Ctrwd works hard in every way they can to make sure the customer is put first. Overflows damage the surrounding environment and cost a lot of money every year. There have been many upgrades done through the years to help not send flow to Carmel. Even with the upgrades ctrwd cannot always keep up. I understand how a storage tank could be an eye sore, but has anyone thought to look at other lift stations or storage tanks. Most lift stations are right in the middle of neighborhoods. Some close to schools and soccer fields, and some right in back yards, or at least next to a back yard. We all have to work together to come up with a proper solution. The proposed solution by ctrwd is the best one offered so far.

    4. Fox has comments from several people that seem to have some inside information. I would refer to their website. Changed my whole opionion of this story.

    5. This place is great! I'm piggy backing and saying the Cobb salad is great. But the ribs are awesome. $6.49 for ribs and 2 sides?! They're delicious. If you work downtown, head over there.
