MUNSTER – Joel Gorelick, president and chief administrative officer of Peoples Bank, is retiring from the bank. He joined Peoples in 1983 as vice president for commercial lending and went on to develop the bank’s commercial line which today accounts for 65 percent of the bank’s loan portfolio.
“I was born and raised in the area, and I’ve been fortunate that working here at Peoples for 30 years of those years has allowed me to stay engaged and contribute to the welfare of the community,” said Gorelick.
In the community is involved with the Northwest Indiana Boys and Girls Club and the Merrillville Rotary. He also was founding chairman of the Regional Development Company.
