Ron Gifford, who served as president and CEO of Indy Partnership until two weeks ago, has taken on a new role with the Central Indiana Corporate Partnership.

Gifford has been named executive vice president for public policy and executive director of the Central Indiana Transit Task Force, CICP announced on Tuesday.

Gifford will oversee CICP’s public policy priorities, but his primary work will be with the private-sector-led Central Indiana Transit Task Force, which is the regional mass-transit initiative co-founded by CICP, the Greater Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce and the Central Indiana Community Foundation.

The task force is a group of business and industry leaders from throughout the Indianapolis region that has created a regional transit proposal. The release of the plan in February 2010 kicked off the Indy Connect public feedback campaign, which produced a revised plan in November. The task force is reconvening to work with the public sector to produce a final proposal, and to seek legislative and public approval of the plan next year.

Gifford, a former government affairs attorney with Baker & Daniels, oversaw the merger of Indy Partnership and Develop Indy, which took effect March 1.
