Indy Reads has announced that Chief Executive Officer Ryan King will be transitioning out of the role by the end of the year. The Indy Reads Board of Directors says it will be conducting a national search for a new CEO.
King will stay with the organization throughout the search. Indy Reads says he is planning to transition full-time into his coaching and consulting business, Maximize Partners.
“Ryan has been a transformational leader for our organization,” said Lori Hall, Indy Reads board chair. “Under his leadership, Indy Reads has completely revamped our program model. The organization has become a provider of Adult Education classes with the State of Indiana, established a program with AmeriCorps to hire and develop WorkLiteracy coaches to further support students and staff, and become accredited by the United Way of Central Indiana.”
During King’s tenure, the organization says it has expanded services and built a financial foundation that is the strongest in its history. Before joining Indy Reads in 2016, King was the executive director of LoDo District Inc. in Denver.
“I have loved my time at Indy Reads and it’s now time to pass the torch,” King said. “I’d like to thank the staff, volunteers, and board for all of their support over the years. Because of their hard work, we have been able to establish a program that is making an impact for families in our community.”
