Conexus Indiana, the state’s advanced manufacturing and logistics initiative, today announced the appointment of Bryce Carpenter as director of community and industry outreach. In the position, he will work with David Holt, Conexus vice president, operations and business development, to strengthen Conexus Indiana’s Regional Logistics Councils through outreach to business and community leaders across Indiana.
Carpenter comes to Conexus from the Marion County Republican Central Committee where he was executive director, creating and executing individually tailored campaign platforms and grassroots strategies, and partnering with the Indianapolis City-County Council, the Indiana General Assembly, and the Indianapolis mayor’s office to advance issues and legislation. Prior to ascending to that role, he served as the Central Committee’s communications and political director, developing and executing press conferences and media relations. He also managed efforts to recruit, develop and mobilize volunteers.
Prior to joining the Central Committee, Carpenter was deputy political director for the Friends of Governor Fletcher gubernatorial campaign in Frankfort, Ky., and worked in the administration in administration planning and education policy.
“It is a pleasure to welcome Bryce to our team,” said Holt. “His experience creating working partnerships with centers of influence and business and community leaders will expand our community and industry relationships. As an initiative that relies on the volunteer efforts of executives throughout the Hoosier state, we also appreciate Bryce’s background in recruiting and mobilizing dedicated volunteers.”
Carpenter earned a bachelor of arts degree from Centre College in Danville, Ky., with a major in government and a minor in history.
