Greg Smitley | CEO of BBB of Northern Indiana

Working in the banking industry for 33 years provided Greg Smitley, CEO of the Better Business Bureau of Northern Indiana, with a good foundation of serving people. That experience also provided an understanding of integrity and trust. His mentor early in his career was Jay Powell, president of Anthony Wayne Bank. But, much of his inspiration came from three women: his wife, Patricia, of 35 years, and his daughters, Lara and Lisa. “They inspired me to be the best husband and father I could be,” says Greg. Greg adds that he has had the pleasure of mentoring many young women over the years, many who have gone on to become successful bankers. “And, I am proud of every one of them.” Greg’s personal goal is to help the BBB expand its reach from 23 counties in northern Indiana and continue build on its good reputation.
