INDIANAPOLIS -

The Capital Improvement Board in Indianapolis has unanimously selected Andy Mallon as executive director. Mallon is the fourth person to hold the position since 1965 and succeeds Barney Levengood, who announced his retirement in January after 28 years in the role.

Mallon most recently served as corporation counsel for the city of Indianapolis. He supervised all legal representation and counsel for the city, including efforts for the $600 million Community Justice Campus project and served as lead negotiator for several high-profile economic development projects such as the Infosys U.S. Education Center on the city's west side.

"In the next few years, the CIB will move forward with major construction projects and expansions at our largest facilities that will position the CIB to continue its over $1 billion annual economic impact on the state for years ahead," CIB President Melina Kennedy said in a news release. “Andy’s experience navigating major construction projects, state and municipal finance, and government and legal matters as well as his deep roots in the city of Indianapolis and state of Indiana make him a great fit to continue the success of the CIB and the economic impact it brings to the state and city."

Mallon will begin his new role immediately and the CIB says Levengood will be retained as a consultant to help with the transition over the next few months.

As a result of Mallon's new position, Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett has appointed Donnie Morgan corporation counsel for the city. Morgan has served as chief litigation counsel for the city since March 2016 and previously worked for law firm Faegre Baker Daniels in Indy.
