Conexus Indiana has announced F. Joseph Loughrey, chairman of Hillenbrand Inc. and the Lumina Foundation and longtime advanced manufacturing and logistics champion, is the recipient of the inaugural Andre B. Lacy Vanguard Award.

The award, named after local philanthropist and business leader Andre B. Lacy, honors Hoosier leaders who champion the advanced manufacturing and logistics industries, advocate for civic and philanthropic leadership, and demonstrate visionary perspective that challenges the status quo.

Loughrey was selected for his impact on Indiana’s advanced manufacturing and logistics as president of Cummins Inc. and his commitment to organizations that support the growth of the advanced manufacturing and logistics industries and their workforce.

Under his leadership, Cummins Inc., the Columbus-based independent diesel engine manufacturer, grew into a Fortune 200 company with more than 40,000 employees and more than $14.3 billion in sales. He retired from Cummins in 2009 after a career at the company that spanned more than 35 years, which led to his recognition as one of Indiana’s leading voices on advanced manufacturing.

Loughrey previously served as board chairman of the Manufacturing Institute and was a founding chairman of Conexus Indiana, serving from 2007-2012. He currently serves on a number of boards, including the Vanguard Group, Oxfam America and The V Foundation for Cancer Research.

Loughrey is a graduate of the University of Notre Dame, where he serves as a member and former chair of the Advisory Council to the College of Arts & Letters and as chair of the Kellogg Institute for International Studies Advisory Board.
