Schellinger Resigns State Post

(Indianapolis, IN) - The state’s Secretary of Commerce, Jim Schellinger, stepped down from his position earlier this week.


In a memo, Schellinger resigned effective immediately, but did not give a reason or any indication of his future plans.  He said he is proud of contributing to the addition of 3,900 new Hoosier jobs in the past year, as well as $450 million in capital investment across the state.


Schellinger, who has family ties to the La Porte area, was appointed as Indiana’s top economic development official in 2017.


Governor Eric Holcomb said he intends to fill the position as soon as possible.
