David Hampton has been named executive director of Local Initiatives Support Corp. Indianapolis. Hampton succeeds Tedd Grain, who announced his resignation from the community development organization in January to take a position with Eskenazi Health.
LISC Indianapolis says it works as a catalyst with public and private partners on economic development, affordable housing, education, and jobs in underserved communities.
Hampton is president and chief executive officer of consulting firm Hampton Innovations. He was also deputy mayor of neighborhood engagement for the City of Indianapolis for five years prior.
“I am honored to lead the next chapter of LISC Indianapolis to help improve life expectancy, increase economic mobility, and close the racial equity gap. I will continue to foster the organization’s role as a key partner, investor and convener in the community development field,” said Hampton.
Hampton earned a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice from the University of Indianapolis and a doctorate in practical theology from the Christian Theological Seminary.
