ON THE MOVE: June 15, 2014

Ann Ryan has been promoted to chief marketing officer for Old National Bancorp.

An Old National Bank associate since January 2002, Ryan has most recently served as SVP, marketing creative director, leading the in-house creative team. Prior to taking that role, she held a number of marketing roles, including Terre Haute region marketing director, marketing partner for Old National Insurance and Old National Wealth Management and manager of many special projects and events. Before joining Old National, Ryan worked for a regional marketing agency and owned Ann Ryan Communications, a marketing consultancy firm.

Ryan received her bachelor’s degree in English and telecommunications from Indiana University and her master’s in graphic design from Indiana State University.

Ryan is involved in the community as a board member and nominating committee chair for TREES, Inc. She is a committee member for Power of the Purse Marketing and the Sheldon Swope Art Museum. Ryan recently authored a children’s book benefiting the United Way of the Wabash Valley’s Success by 6 initiative titled “One Day I Could Be …”

Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College graduate (2012) Jena Thralls recently accepted a marketing position within the Mission Advancement department. Her main role will be to market the Saint Mother Theodore Guerin Shrine and tourism.

Thralls, born and raised in St. Mary-of-the-Woods, is the great-great-great-great-granddaughter of Joseph and Sarah Thralls.

On Oct. 22, 1840, Saint Mother Theodore Guerin and her five companions reached St. Mary-of-the-Woods, and stayed with the Thralls family for more than a month. That home served as the first convent for the Sisters of Providence.

In November 1840, the Diocese of Vincennes purchased the Thralls’ home and land.

Thralls is a 2008 graduate of West Vigo High School. She attended Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College with the help of the Saint Mother Theodore Guerin scholarship and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in journalism.

Before coming to the Sisters of Providence, she worked at the college as the assistant director for Admission.

But her ties to the Sisters of Providence run deeper than just heritage.

“We came here on Sundays for brunch,” she said. “And my grandma lives with the sisters in their assisted living area. I love this place. The sisters are great.”

While she was in high school, Jena also volunteered for the sisters.

“We’ve always had a close relationship,” she said, adding she was very close to former Sisters of Providence General Superior Diane Ris, who died in 2013.

Currently, Thralls lives in Paris, Ill.

 

Maya Stewart, Financial Center manager with Old National Bank in Terre Haute, has been promoted to vice president.

Stewart began her career in banking as a part-time teller with Merchants National Bank in 1994. She has served as an assistant manager, and in 2000 was promoted to Financial Center manager at the new Northside Financial Center. Stewart recently celebrated her 20-year work anniversary with Old National Bank. She is the current leader for the Old National Northwest Region Associate Commitment Team, a graduate of Old National’s Leadership Academy, and holds a bachelor’s degree in life sciences from Indiana State University.

Stewart serves on the board of directors for the Terre Haute Women’s Club and Junior Achievement of the Wabash Valley. She has served as an Old National ambassador during the following conversions: Charter One, Monroe Bank and Indiana Bank & Trust.
