Mr. MESSER. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to honor the accomplishments of
one of my constituents, F. Joseph Loughrey, the incoming chairman of
the board of Hillenbrand, Inc. headquartered in Batesville, Indiana.
This month, Mr. Loughrey will assume the chairmanship of the board of directors of Hillenbrand, Inc. He has served as a director of the company since early 2009. That same year, he retired from Cummins Inc., headquartered in Columbus, Indiana, after serving 35 years in a variety of roles, most recently as vice chairman of the board of directors and as the company's president and chief operating officer. Mr. Loughrey served on the Cummins board from 2005 until 2009 and previously served as a director of Tower Automotive, Inc. and Sauer-Danfoss, Inc.
Mr. Loughrey currently serves on a number of boards, including as chairman for Conexus Indiana and as a member of the boards of AB SKF, Vanguard Group, Lumina Foundation for Education, the V Foundation for Cancer Research, and Oxfam America. He is also chairman of the advisory council to the College of Arts & Letters at the University of Notre Dame, where he additionally serves on the advisory board to the Kellogg Institute for International Studies.
I ask the entire 6th Congressional District to join me in congratulating Mr. Loughrey for his upcoming tenure as chairman of the board of Hillenbrand, Inc. For more than a century, the Hillenbrand companies have served as a staple in the Indiana and American corporate landscape, premiering innovative products in the funeral services, medical, and engineering industries. Joseph's leadership will continue to be a vital part of that success.
