Bedford, Ind. (Dec. 19, 2016) - The Radius Indiana Board of Directors met for its final meeting of 2016 at the French Lick Resort Dec. 14, and enacted a number of changes to the organization heading into 2017.
The board approved the election of former Radius Indiana CEO Becky Skillman as Board Chair, elected six new board members, and ratified a 2017 budget that includes several new priorities and projects to benefit the Radius region.
Additional officers include Vice Chair Don Schulte, Schulte Consulting; Secretary Tim Kinder, Martin County Alliance; and Treasurer Tom Krodel, Old National Bank.  
New board members elected to three-year terms are Billy Chastain, Paoli Town Council; Misty Weisensteiner, Visit French Lick West Baden; Bryan Brackemyre, Indiana Municipal Power Agency; Gene McCracken, Lawrence County Commissioner; Justin Green, Salem City Council; and Shanni Simmons, Vincennes University.
"The board members bring additional perspectives to our leadership for regional economic development," said Radius Indiana President and CEO Jeff Quyle. "Our new members include local government officials, secondary educators and utility providers in the Radius region who have a vested interest in growing our economy and developing our workforce. I look forward to seeing what the group will accomplish in the region in 2017."
The board also approved a 2017 budget that includes support for a new southern Indiana economic development class. Local elected officials and community leaders from the Radius region will have the opportunity to attend the economic development leadership class that will be held in French Lick in late March, to provide information and updates on economic development practices such as site development, business retention, economic development marketing and incentive programs. Other initiatives include multiple site selector trips to share the benefits of doing business in the area, regional marketing efforts, as well as a continued commitment to skilled workforce development, community development and defense industry strategy.
