Governor Eric Holcomb has expanded the board of directors for the Indiana Economic Development Corp. The governor has appointed three new members to the board, bringing its total to 15.
Holcomb was authorized to expand the board with the passage of Senate Enrolled Act 507. The move comes a month after Holcomb appointed former Eli Lilly and Co. (NYSE: LLY) Chief Executive Officer John Lechleiter, Hulman & Co. CEO Mark Miles and Riverside Manufacturing Owner Fred Merritt to the board.
As a result of the expansion, Holcomb has appointed the following people to the new board positions:
- Kristin Marcuccilli: chief operating officer and senior vice president of STAR Financial Bank in Fort Wayne
- Amy Schumacher: president of The Heritage Group in Indianapolis
- Linda White: president and CEO of Evansville-based Deaconess Health System
"To take Indiana’s economy to the next level, we need the experience and counsel of leading executives who know firsthand the challenges and opportunities Hoosier businesses face,” said Holcomb. “These six new IEDC Board members will provide the leadership required to make Indiana a magnet for jobs by advancing innovation, increasing connectivity and enhancing our communities to retain and attract talent for generations to come."
Lechleiter, Miles and Merritt replaced Robert Koch, James Marcuccilli and John Mutz, who had served on the board since its inception in 2005.
