Indianapolis, IN —Today, Muncie’s Casey Stanley was honored by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce with a 2019 Samuel C. Schlosser Volunteer of the Year award.
“Casey is a valued board and committee member at the Indiana Chamber, willing to speak out to represent both his company, the broader business community and his Muncie home,” says Indiana Chamber President and CEO Kevin Brinegar.
“I would like to thank him and all the volunteers who share their time and talents with us. Their leadership and expertise benefit all Hoosiers as we work together to accomplish the mission of the Indiana Chamber, which is to see the state and its people prosper.”
Stanley believes his involvement is good way for him to serve the Muncie area. “Supporting business … (having) a healthy, thriving business community is absolutely critical and necessary for a healthy, thriving community and families.”
He also embraces the challenge of innovating in the business setting.
“Most of what I’ve done at Ontario – one way or another – typically involves something new. A new market, new processes, new teams. I love the unknown part of, ‘We’ve never done it before, but we’ll figure it out.’ ”
Stanley was one of three individuals honored this year for their volunteer efforts with the Indiana Chamber. Also celebrated were Larry Gigerich, executive managing director at Ginovus in Fishers, and Donna Niesen, partner at Katz, Sapper & Miller in Carmel.
Each of the volunteers is featured in the new edition of the Indiana Chamber’s business magazine, BizVoice®, available at www.bizvoicemagazine.com.
Later today, the 30thAnnual Awards Dinner, presented by Anthem Blue Cross & Blue Shield, will feature guest speakers Donna Brazile and Dana Perino of Fox News.
Awards will also be presented to Chuck Surack of Fort Wayne’s Sweetwater Sound, the Ogletree Deakins Business Leader of the Year; Gov. Eric Holcomb, the Birch Bayh-Richard Lugar Government Leader of the Year; Indianapolis entrepreneur John Thompson, the Dynamic Leader of the Year; and the city of Plymouth, the Republic Airways and LIFT Academy Community of the Year.
The Indiana Chamber partners with 25,000 members and investors – representing over four million Hoosiers – to achieve the mission of “cultivating a world-class environment which provides economic opportunity and prosperity.
