INDIANAPOLIS -

Early Learning Indiana has named Maureen Weber its new president and chief executive officer. She currently serves as chief strategy officer of Indianapolis-based Project Lead The Way. Weber succeeds Ted Maple, who served as president and CEO of the state's oldest early childhood education nonprofit since 2013 and left in October to lead education and youth development programs for Indianapolis-based Lilly Endowment Inc.

Early Learning Indiana's staff numbers 350. Weber has held leadership positions in the public and nonprofit sectors, including serving as vice president of customer experience at Indiana University Health and jobs with the Indiana Department of Education, Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles and Indiana Department of Workforce Development.

Board Chair Jennifer Dzwonar says "despite being more than 100 years old, our organization has grown and changed significantly in the past few years, and we need a dynamic and passionate captain at the helm. Maureen’s leadership, varied experiences, her energy for both people and processes, along with amazing and diverse references from community leaders, make her a great fit."

Weber, who holds law and foreign service degrees from Georgetown University, chairs the board of Purdue Polytechnic High School and serves on the advisory board for Stand for Children Indiana. She previously chaired the Indiana Charter School Board.

Weber is set to start with Early Learning Indiana March 5. You can read more about Weber's announcement by clicking here.
