Former Indiana Chamber of Commerce Vice President of Energy and Environmental Policy Vince Griffin has been named executive director for Indiana Advanced Energy Economy. Its parent Advanced Energy Economy, which expanded its presence in Indiana last year, advocates for policies to support energy-related businesses.

Griffin retired last year from the chamber after 19 years. He previously served as director of the state’s Energy Policy Office. The former Indiana Environmental Health Association president is a Registered Environmental Health Specialist and holds degrees from the Indiana University School of Medicine and Ball State University.

The national organization is led by Chief Executive Officer Graham Richard, a former Fort Wayne Mayor. Richard says "Vince Griffin has effectively navigated Indiana’s energy policy landscape for years. We welcome his dynamic leadership and deep experience as we work to increase awareness of the economic potential for advanced energy growth in Indiana."

AEE represents more than 1,000 advanced energy organizations in 27 states.
