INDIANAPOLIS – Gov. Mike Pence recently awarded Fort Wayne banker James C. Marcuccilli the Sagamore of the Wabash.
Marcuccilli is president and chief executive officer of Star Financial Bank, and chairman of the board of the Indiana Bankers Association. The award recognizes Hoosiers who complete distinguished statewide service.
Marcuccilli was presented the award at the IBA Annual Convention on Sept. 24 by David H. Mills, director of the Indiana Department of Financial Institutions, the Indiana Bankers Association said in a statement Monday.
I am deeply honored to receive this award, particularly in the company of my fellow bankers, Marcuccilli said in the statement. I am proud to come from a banking family, and grateful to carry on our family tradition of service to community.
In addition to his bank responsibilities, Marcuccilli is a director of Star Financial Group Inc. He was named to his Star Financial Bank position in 1997, after more than 20 years of service, and was named to his holding company position in 1985. Marcuccilli is past chairman of the board of Junior Achievement of Northern Indiana and of the Northeast Indiana Regional Partnership.

Marcuccilli is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame who took office as chairman of the Indiana Bankers Association on Jan. 1.
