The chief executive officer of Conexus Indiana has announced his retirement. Steven Dwyer has led Indiana's advanced manufacturing and logistics industry initiative since 2009, and helped launch Conexus as a founding board member in 2007. Dwyer previously served as chief operating officer of Rolls-Royce Corp. in Indianapolis.

He spent 30 years in the aerospace and defense industries.

FULLBEAUTY Brands Executive Vice President Chip Edgington, who also serves as the president of the Conexus Indiana board, says "the Conexus Indiana Board of Directors is indebted to Steve for his vision and leadership in driving positive change across the state’s advanced manufacturing and logistics industry. He has positioned Conexus Indiana as a key catalyst in helping connect industry, educational and state government leaders, and it is a model receiving national attention. His successor has a solid foundation to build upon."

North Carolina-based Jorgenson Consulting Inc. has been hired by Conexus Indiana to assist in the search for Dwyer's successor. Conexus Indiana says it has created three industry-led councils over the last 10 years focusing on aerospace and defense, automotive and logistics. In that time it has also developed a supplier database to connect global buyers to Indiana suppliers and advanced manufacturing and logistics-focused curriculum and job experiences for 8,000 Hoosier students.
