Monger to lead Alliance



Veteran economic development leader Tim Monger has assumed the role of president and chief executive officer of the Hamilton County Alliance.

Monger most recently served as a senior vice president for Cassidy Turley Location Advisory & Incentives Practice, and previously as executive director for the Indiana Dept. of Commerce. He has more than 25 years experience in senior executive level positions in the areas of regional, state and community economic development.

“Tim’s experience on both the public and private side makes him the ideal choice to take on coordination and leadership of economic development activities in Indiana’s fastest growing county,” HCA Chairman Bill Petranoff said. “The county, its communities and the private sector are looking to Tim to help take us in a dynamic new direction.”

Monger’s hiring comes after more than six months of transitional planning and re-visioning by the organization’s executive committee, which consists of public and private sector members from throughout the county.

“I look forward to working with the Alliance board of directors alongside the elected officials, economic development professionals and the private sector to continue the extraordinary growth and development of Hamilton County. The engine for the development in Hamilton County is the eight great communities led by elected officials and staffs committed to economic development,” Monger said.

Monger will address the county at the HCA’s annual meeting on April 25 at Conner Prairie.

The Hamilton County Alliance is an Economic Development Partnership of Business and Government including Fishers, Carmel, Noblesville, Westfield, Sheridan, Arcadia, Atlanta, Cicero and Hamilton County. The Alliance acts to enhance the county’s economic health and quality of life through business attraction and expansion, resulting in high quality jobs, capital investment and a strong tax base throughout Hamilton County.
