Steven F. Dwyer is Conexus Indiana's president and CEO, leading an organization focused on growing and promoting the advanced manufacturing and logistics sectors in Indiana and preparing Hoosiers to take advantage of new opportunities in these industries. Dwyer’s background in manufacturing and supply chain logistics, combined with a personal concern for the region’s focus on employee development, bought him to the team as an external chairman in early 2009. He previously held positions with Rolls-Royce Corporation (Indianapolis) and Allied Steel (Greer, South Carolina).

Dwyer is a 25-year veteran of the aerospace and defense industry and has extensive knowledge of lean manufacturing concepts, continuous improvement programs and comprehensive internal control systems. Dwyer serves on the Board of the Indianapolis 500 Festival, the Advisory Board of Indiana’s Education Roundtable, the HIRE UP Indy Council, and Langham Logistics Advisory Board.
