If you watch many sporting events on televsion, you've probably seen the work of Conrad Piccirillo. His finger prints too are on the works of many other sporting initiatives, televised or not, around central Indiana. For those efforts, Piccirillo will be front and center at Tuesday's Pathfinder Awards ceremony at the Indiana Roof Ballroom.

Piccirillo, president of Indianapolis-based Innovative, will receive the inaugural Difference Maker Award from Indiana Sports Corp. at the annual Pathfinder Awards gala.

The Difference Maker Award recognizes an individual who “has proven to be a reliable and inspirational leader through their ability to consistently make a meaningful impact in support of the Indiana Sports Corp. mission.”

“Conrad has been deeply involved in numerous successful Indiana Sports Corp. projects, including the 2012 Super Bowl bid effort, but never seeks attention or accolades for his stellar work,” said ISC President Allison Melangton. “He’s the type of person you want on your project team. Our community has a tremendous asset in Conrad Piccirillo.”

As an integral member of numerous bid efforts by Indiana Sports Corp. over the years that have secured premier events for Indiana, Piccirillo has orchestrated the visual elements that depict the city’s image, prestige and values, Melangton said.

From his first job with the National Playwright’s Conference and the National Theater of the Deaf, to his involvement with the first nine years of ESPN’s start-up, to his current position at the helm of Innovative, Piccirillo has earned six Emmy Awards for his direction and contributions to storytelling in sports, news, entertainment and technology.

Piccirillo and his company have worked on a wide range of sports-related projects inlcuding Super Bowl XLVI, NCAA My Coke Fest, ESPN Great Outdoor Games, ESPN X-Games, Indiana Pacers, Dallara and the Indianapolis 500. While his official title at Innovative is chief executive, Piccirillo has given himself another title: Chief Disorganizer. 

Piccirillo spent a combined 15 years working for ESPN and Disney and another 11 years working for Indianapolis-based Lingner Group Productions Inc., which is well known for its work in motorsports.

In addition to the presentation of the Difference Maker Award at this year’s luncheon, Jeff and Karen Saturday will be recognized as the Pathfinder Award recipients and Lynn Rogers will receive the Rev. Charles Williams Award. The event is sold out.

  • Great Choice!
    This is a well deserved award. Conrad is quick to help people and organizations he cares about. He pours himself into each of these efforts and always does it without pomp and circumstance. I am thankful for the work he has done in addition to the list above including Heartland Film Festival, Inspired 2 Impact, Joseph Maley Foundation...I'm sure others can add to this list. All of which many would never know about. Thanks Conrad!
  • Bravo
    What a great choice for recognition. Conrad's made a difference in so many organizations. It can be rare to have talent and the kind of attitude to make things work and keep everybody not just happy, but laughing.

  2. We are a nation of speed. All of our younger lives are filled with deadlines, quotas and bottom lines. We start to ease out of the pressured rat-race when we finally see "retirement." The most enjoyable travel on the planet is passenger rail service. Indy to Chicago does not beat Megabus or Southwest Airlines in speed. Passenger rail however has the best seating, mammoth legroon, seat backs that recline to more than 45 degrees and employers that really want you to return as a customer. Indiana municipalities need to maintain subsidies to support this transportation mode. Losing it is loss for all of us.
