The following statement was issued by Indy Chamber President and CEO Michael Huber on the passing of former U.S. Senator Richard Lugar:

“Servant leadership is the philosophy of putting others before yourself and leading by example. Richard Lugar was the embodiment of this philosophy, living not one, but multiple lives of service as a businessman, community leader, one of America’s greatest mayors, and as a transformational U.S. Senator who helped make our world a much safer place. Today, the Indy Chamber honors the life and legacy of Richard Lugar. May our region and our world seek to follow his example.”
