Indiana Fiber Network CEO to Retire

Posted: Updated:
INDIANAPOLIS -

The chief executive officer of Indianapolis-based Indiana Fiber Network LLC has announced his retirement. Kelly Dyer, who became the telecommunications provider's first paid employee in 2004, has spent nearly 40 years in the industry.

Prior to his career with IFN, he served as executive vice president and general manager of one of IFN's owners, Daviess-Martin County RTC.

Dyer says "it's been a privilege and an honor to work for an organization that has such great owners and employees. Personally, now is the time for me to step down and transition leadership of IFN to the next CEO - one who will lead IFN through the next wave of expansion just as I have been fortunate to do for the past fifteen years. I am working closely with the Management Committee to establish a timeline that ensures a smooth transition."

The IFN board says a search is underway for Dyer's successor. Management Committee Chairman Don Johnson says Dyer will be greatly missed. "The Committee greatly appreciates Kelly's 15 years of service to IFN and his leadership as the original Chairman and Founding President and CEO," he says. "Kelly has been the instrumental driver in IFN's establishment and profitable growth since our inception."
