For nearly four years, I have had the privilege of leading Conexus Indiana's mission to support Indiana's largest industry sectors during a time of unprecedented opportunity and unexpected challenges.
Throughout my tenure as Conexus Indiana's president and CEO, I have been blown away by our partners' response to the advent of Industry 4.0, the pandemic and social and economic uncertainty while making and moving essential products and services and creating meaningful careers for Hoosiers.
It's with mixed emotions and against this backdrop that I share with you my impending retirement from Conexus Indiana. In June 2021, I will transition into a new phase of my personal and professional life, focusing my energy on family and the volunteer and philanthropic endeavors that are incredibly important to my community, family and me.
I am honored to work every day with dedicated Conexus Indiana staff who work tirelessly to strengthen Indiana's advanced manufacturing and logistics industries and develop talent to succeed in these amazing careers. Our work would not be possible without our industry, education, public-sector and philanthropic partners funding our work, informing our work and putting our programs to work. I will be forever grateful to the hundreds of partners and friends who share Conexus Indiana's passion for the state's legacy and amazingly bright future.
Together, we have built a talented team of professionals, a highly engaged stakeholder network and a solid financial foundation. We are delivering programs and impacting thousands of Hoosiers across the state with great success. I am not only incredibly proud of our accomplishments but also confident this is an opportune time for a transition as Conexus has tremendous momentum in the critical elements of its work.
I am not going far. I will be an active Conexus Indiana partner, industry advocate and supporter. I will always value my relationship with the industries that have been part of my DNA for most of my professional career.
I am looking forward to continued success and an abundance of awesome opportunities for our industry sectors, Hoosiers and the State of Indiana.
