Westfield Mayor Andy Cook has appointed Ken Alexander as the new public works director. Alexander will join the city administration beginning today.
“We are thrilled and excited that Ken is joining our team,” said Cook. “His experience managing high profile projects is much needed with the large projects underway here in Westfield. He’ll be a true asset to our team,” says Cook.
Alexander brings with him 16 years of experience in the construction industry encompassing experiences in real estate development, construction management, general contracting and program management. During his career, he has managed the construction of several high profile projects including the Discovery Communications’ World Headquarters in Silver Spring, Md. and most recently the Eskenazi Health (Wishard) Replacement Hospital in Indianapolis. He has a B.S. in construction engineering management from Purdue University.
“I am overjoyed to join such a visionary group of leaders intent on making Westfield the most sought after destination to live and work,” said Alexander. “It is a wonderful feeling to give back to the community that provides so much to my family and friends.”
Alexander and his wife, Jenni, live in Hamilton County with their three children. He is very active in several charities and children advocacy programs.
