Arizona news exec tapped to lead Pulliam Trust

An Arizona news executive has been named to succeed Harriet Ivey as president and CEO of the Nina Mason Pulliam Charitable Trust, the trust announced Wednesday.

Gene D’Adamo, vice president of community relations for Republic Media, which publishes The Arizona Republic, will take the post in January.

Ivey, 64, is retiring after leading the trust since its inception.

The trust is named after the wife of Eugene C. Pulliam, founder of Central Newpapers Inc., the former parent company of The Indianapolis Star and The Arizona Republic.

Nina Mason Pulliam left most of her assets to establish the organization upon her death in 1997.

The trust has an endowment of about $375 million, a staff of 18 and offices in Indianapolis and Phoenix. It has awarded more than $223 million in grants to 891 not-for-profit groups in Indiana and Arizona since its establishment.

D’Adamo, 52, is expected to divide his time equally between the Indianapolis and Phoenix offices of the trust.

An Arizona State University graduate and resident of Phoenix for more than 40 years, D'Adamo serves as chairman of the Arizona Grantmakers Forum, and is on the board of the Arizona Community Foundation and the Banner Alzheimer’s Institute Foundation.

Overall, he has served on 20 not-for-profit boards during his career.

“This is a unique position because of the need for the CEO to live and work in both Phoenix and Indianapolis,” said Kent E. Agness, one of three Pulliam Trust trustees, who lives in Indianapolis. “Gene’s deep roots in Phoenix are well known, and we are sure that he will quickly become a valued member of the Indianapolis community, as well.”

  1. In reality, Lilly is maintaining profit by cutting costs such as Indiana/US citizen IT workers by a significant amount with their Tata Indian consulting connection, increasing Indian H1B's at Lillys Indiana locations significantly and offshoring to India high paying Indiana jobs to cut costs and increase profit at the expense of U.S. workers.

  2. I think perhaps there is legal precedence here in that the laws were intended for family farms, not pig processing plants on a huge scale. There has to be a way to squash this judges judgment and overrule her dumb judgement. Perhaps she should be required to live in one of those neighbors houses for a month next to the farm to see how she likes it. She is there to protect the people, not the corporations.

  3. http://www.omafra.gov.on.ca/english/engineer/facts/03-111.htm Corporate farms are not farms, they are indeed factories on a huge scale. The amount of waste and unhealthy smells are environmentally unsafe. If they want to do this, they should be forced to buy a boundary around their farm at a premium price to the homeowners and landowners that have to eat, sleep, and live in a cesspool of pig smells. Imagine living in a house that smells like a restroom all the time. Does the state really believe they should take the side of these corporate farms and not protect Indiana citizens. Perhaps justifiable they should force all the management of the farms to live on the farm itself and not live probably far away from there. Would be interesting to investigate the housing locations of those working at and managing the corporate farms.

  4. downtown in the same area as O'malia's. 350 E New York. Not sure that another one could survive. I agree a Target is needed d'town. Downtown Philly even had a 3 story Kmart for its downtown residents.

  5. Indy-area residents... most of you have no idea how AMAZING Aurelio's is. South of Chicago was a cool pizza place... but it pales in comparison to the heavenly thin crust Aurelio's pizza. Their deep dish is pretty good too. My waistline is expanding just thinking about this!
