First Internet Bancorp in Indianapolis has appointed its next chief financial officer.

Kenneth Lovick will succeed Kay Whitaker as the $866 million-asset company's chief financial officer starting Aug. 18. Whitaker is leaving First Internet on Sept. 30 to pursue entrepreneurial ventures, particularly those that involve women-owned businesses.

While Whitaker was the CFO, the company's assets grew more than a third and it raised $29 million in a secondary offering.

Lovick has been with First Financial Bancorp in Cincinnati for the last four years, managing investor relations, corporate development and capital planning. Lovick worked in investment banking previously.

"Ken is joining us during a period of solid growth, and our lines of business are performing well," Chairman and Chief Executive David Becker said in a press release Tuesday. "The board of directors and I believe Ken will add value to the team with his financial and analytical skills and his planning capabilities."
