DePauw University has tapped an Indianapolis tech veteran to become part of its leadership team. Steve Fouty, who most recently served as chief financial officer of ClusterTruck in Indy, has been named director of the McDermond Center for Management and Entrepreneurship on the Greencastle campus.

Fouty has been a part of the leadership teams for several notable Indy tech companies, including Software Artistry, ExactTarget, Compendium, Emerging Threats, and PolicyStat, all of which were later acquired by larger companies. DePauw President Mark McCoy says Fouty brings a "powerful combination" to the university at a critical time.

"Tomorrow’s leaders must do more than understand what it takes to build and grow a business -- they must understand the ever-increasing role of technology in our lives and have the intellectual and emotional dexterity to see the future and navigate change," said McCoy. "I am excited to see what Steve does to develop the McDermond Center -- one of the nation's finest experiential learning programs in business leadership and entrepreneurial preparation within a liberal arts setting -- so that it can provide greater opportunities for even more of our students."

In his new role, the university says Fouty will build and cultivate supportive programming, skills development, internships, student organizations, and alumni mentoring and networking. He will also serve as a member of DePauw's Centers Council, coordinating on projects with the directors of several other parts of the university, including the Tenzer Center for Technology and the Hubbard Center for Student Engagement.

Everyone should run from the shooter. Everyone should confront the shooter. It’s healthy that we’re discussing safety, but unfortunately, we’re talking...
