The president and chief executive officer of the Central Indiana Corporate Partnership is retiring at the end of the year, which is prompting a leadership reorganization of the nonprofit. David Johnson, who has served as CEO for ten years, also previously served as a founder, president and CEO of BioCrossroads, CICP’s life sciences initiative.
Johnson held that role from 2005 to 2019.
CICP says it has grown from 30 to 113 people under Johnson’s leadership. It also added two of its six talent and industry sector initiatives – AgriNovus Indiana and Ascend Indiana.
“I have been privileged to lead this organization over an important decade in the growth of our region and state. I will miss day-to-day engagement with executive leaders and colleagues but look forward to continuing to make some sort of productive contribution to the significant work of advancing regional prosperity,” said Johnson.
With Johnson’s departure at the end of 2022, CICP is reorganizing leadership structure. The roles of president and CEO will be divided into two.
Chief Financial Officer and Chief Operating Officer Latoya Botteron will assume the role of president, pending board approval in August. She’ll retain her role as CFO.
CICP has hired an executive consulting firm to lead the search for the next CEO.
