The board of directors for IndyHub has selected Blake Johnson as its new president. Johnson, a member of the Indianapolis City-County Council, succeeds Molly Chavers, who announced she was leaving IndyHub in June.
Johnson previously served as vice president of strategy for advocacy and communications at Complete College America, a national nonprofit. IndyHub says Johnson will formally transition into the role in mid-December and Chavers will work with him during the transition and through the end of the year.
"For more than a decade, Molly has been a driving force in shaping our city and catalyzing Indy’s 20- and 30-somethings to get connected, get involved, and make this city their own," Johnson said in a news release. "I’m humbled by the opportunity to build upon the extraordinary success IndyHub has enjoyed under Molly’s leadership and eager to get to work in ensuring our city’s young leaders continue to make an impact in the Indianapolis we enjoy today as well as the Indianapolis we strive for tomorrow."
IndyHub describes itself as "an advocate and a resource for Indy’s 20- and 30-somethings, connecting them to Indianapolis socially, professionally, and philanthropically."
