University of Southern Indiana President Ronald S. Rochon, PhD, has been named to the inaugural IBJ Media Indiana 250 list. The list includes 250 of the most influential executives across the state in an array of economic sectors.  

In its nomination process, IBJ Media, comprised of Indianapolis Business Journal (IBJ), Inside INdiana Business and Indiana Lawyer, looked for individuals statewide who make the biggest differences for Indiana’s economy and Hoosiers overall. Nominations were not pre-determined by companies or titles—instead, the goal was to find individuals who make an impact in their industries and communities. Nominations were reviewed and selected by the editors and publisher at IBJ, Inside INdiana Business and Indiana Lawyer. 

“I am extremely humbled by this honor,” Rochon says. “For me, this is a shared recognition with my USI community. Because of our continued, collective effort to serve our students as well as this beautiful region, we are recognized and honored by IBJ Media.” 

Rochon was recognized at an exclusive Indiana 250 reception featuring remarks from Indiana Governor Eric Holcomb on Thursday, July 21 at the Salesforce Tower in Indianapolis, Indiana.  

“The leaders included on the Indiana 250 have made significant contributions in their communities, across their regions, and to the state and nation,” says Nate Feltman, IBJ Media CEO. “But the Indiana 250 is more than a directory or an honor roll. It’s a way to help Hoosiers in one part of the state learn about leaders and organizations in other areas of the state. We hope the Indiana 250 will create a bond between influential Hoosiers and help them work together toward a stronger Indiana.” 

IBJ Media published profiles of the honorees in a magazine, available for purchase for $100 at Indiana250.com, which will be distributed with the July 22 issue of IBJ. Indiana Lawyer subscribers will pay $50 for a book. All subscribers of IBJ, Inside INdiana Business and Indiana Lawyer can access the profiles and additional information online at Indiana250.com.
