EVANSVILLE, IN--(Marketwired - Jun 19, 2013) - Old National Bancorp (NYSE: ONB) announced today the appointment of Becky Skillman to its Corporate Board of Directors.

Becky Skillman serves as President/CEO of Radius Indiana, an economic development company for South Central Indiana. Prior to joining Radius, Skillman served as Lt. Governor of the State of Indiana for eight years. She has devoted her life to public service and to the enrichment of the lives of the citizens of Indiana.

"We are very pleased to have Becky Skillman join our Board of Directors," said Old National Board Chairman Larry Dunigan. "She has focused her career on serving the community, and that experience will complement Old National's community banking commitment. In addition, her expertise and leadership in economic development and civil service will be a tremendous asset to Old National."

In 1992, Skillman was elected to the Indiana State Senate, where she represented Lawrence, Monroe, Jackson, Washington, and Orange Counties. Rising quickly through the leadership, she became Majority Caucus Chair.
