Lebanon, Ind. – The Boone County Economic Development Corporation’s (Boone EDC) Executive Director Molly Whitehead has been named to the Indianapolis Business Journal’s (IBJ) “Forty Under 40” list.

“Molly’s deep-rooted commitment to Boone County is evident, and she seeks out new ways, every day, to make Boone County a better place to live, work, and thrive,” said Boone EDC President Brock Hesler. “Even more notable than her professional accomplishments is Molly’s passion for international adoption. In 2016, Molly and her husband adopted a daughter from China.”

“I am honored to be included in the Forty Under 40 Class of 2018,” said Whitehead. “What we have been able to accomplish in Boone County has been a group effort, thanks in part to the team we have and the communities we serve.”
