Subaru of Indiana Automotive’s Tom Easterday has been presented with distinguished awards from the City of Lafayette and State of Indiana. Easterday is retiring after 30 years at Subaru and was selected by Governor Eric Holcomb to receive the Sagamore of the Wabash and also was awarded with the Marquis de Lafayette by Lafayette Mayor Tony Roswarski.
"I’m equally honored and humbled by this recognition," said Easterday. "I’ve truly been blessed to have the opportunity to work with several outstanding individuals in serving Indiana, the greater Lafayette community and Subaru during my tenure at SIA."
Easterday announced his retirement in February and transitioned to an executive advisor role in October. He officially retires at the end of December, but will remain in an advisory role.
These awards are just the latest in a career full of them for Easterday. He was named a 2009 Excellence in Manufacturing Innovation and was recently inducted into the Indiana Manufacturing Hall of Fame.
