Conexus Indiana has named 30 young professionals to its Rising 30 Class of 2022, which includes Max Faiman, a Product Engineer at Indiana Furniture.
Conexus is a network of industry, education, and public-sector leaders that work to strengthen Indiana’s competitive advantage in advanced manufacturing and logistics (AML). They leverage innovation and technology, and address the most pressing talent needs to make AML more productive and profitable. Their goal is to make Indiana a global AML powerhouse and ensure the State will be a leader in this sector for generations to come.
“This year we are honoring 30 young professionals who not only are doing amazing work now, but who will help our industries lead during a time of dramatic change,” said Fred Cartwright, Chief Executive Officer of Conexus Indiana. “This is the second year for Rising 30, and now we can count 60 young industry leaders who will inspire the next generation of talent and be at the forefront of new technologies, such as 3D printing, artificial intelligence and cobots, that define the 4th Industrial Revolution and beyond.”
Max Faiman has been with Indiana Furniture since July 2019. He was brought on board to modernize one of the company’s key product lines, and quickly helped to update existing processes and introduce new ones in order to accommodate a new global partnership.
“Max has been a valuable addition to the Indiana Furniture team and being named to the Rising 30 is well deserved,” stated Chad Nord, VP of Operations at Indiana Furniture. “Since day one, he has collaborated on both new and established product lines, creatively solved problems, and implemented customer-focused improvements. We rely on his continued contributions and give him freedom to drive further innovation for our 117-year-old company. Congratulations to Max and this year’s honorees.”
Conexus Indiana says those looking for the future of AML need to look no further. Individuals in the Rising 30, like Max Faiman, bring exceptional leadership and innovative thinking to bear on the industry’s toughest challenges. They have the collaboration, energy, and creativity to change the way the world does business. “And they’re just getting started.”
