Becker -- founder, president and CEO of First Internet Bank of Indiana and 1975 graduate of DePauw University -- "has built his company from a start-up to 50 employees," notes Smart Business. "To achieve growth, Becker has taken a vigilant, proactive approach to finding and hiring the best talent."

"I’m a hands-off leader," Becker tells the publication. "I don't get wrapped up in the details. But as a general rule, the success of my company has been hiring and retaining very talented individuals from the get-go."

Erik Cassano writes, "Becker uses every meeting, every conference, even the occasional restaurant lunch, as a means of finding his next potential top performer. It's an approach that is rooted mostly in a willingness to keep your eyes peeled and ears open."
