Dedicated to service and nurturing business relationships.

Born and raised in metro Fort Wayne, Indiana, Jim Papagiannis spent the first decade of his career in finance as a retail banker and sales manager for Flagstar before entering the commercial banking sector at Tower Bank. He served as a cash management officer for four years, then as a treasury management officer after Old National Bank acquired Tower.

Now that he’s happily returned to Flagstar, Jim supports the public sector as a Government Banking relationship manager. He believes in making his clients’ day-to-day operations easier—whether it’s offering them a new product, a finding a better rate, or getting them acclimated to a processing program.


“I’m a problem solver,” Jim says. “I want my clients to know that they can come to me, I’m not just going to sell them a product—I’m going to help them find a solution.”

Papagiannis sits on the board of the Northeast Indiana Base Community Council and volunteers his time with Junior Achievement. He enjoys photography, competes in triathlons, and works with his children’s baseball and softball leagues.
