The Hendricks County Economic Development Partnership has named Jeff Pipkin executive director. Pipkin, formerly the director of business development for the organization, has served in the role on an interim basis since January.
Pipkin succeeds Cinda Kelley-Hutchings, who left the position after eight years to pursue other business interests. Pipkin joined the HCEDP in 2013 after serving as deputy director of the Morgan County Economic Development Corp. for 12 years.
"We couldn’t be more thrilled to name Jeff Pipkin as our Executive Director at the HCEDP," said Mike Baker, president of the HCEDP Board of Directors. "His experience, ability to execute this role and manage the rapid growth of Hendricks County makes him a great fit for our community."
Pipkin says he is honored to be named to the position on a permanent basis. "Hendricks County’s future is very vibrant and I look forward to leading this organization and its role in shaping it."
