“If there’s a place where I can find that I bring value and make positive change, I’m not going to sit on the sidelines.”

Age: 33

Vice President-Leasing/Healthcare, Duke Realty Corp.


With the surname Tucker, Travis Tucker seemed destined to work in real estate.

“I get that all the time,” said Tucker, who is not related to the family that founded the locally headquartered F.C. Tucker Co. real estate brokerage, but instead is a vice president at Duke Realty Corp., where he handles health care projects in the Midwest.

While destiny may have had something to do with Tucker’s career, so did a used car he purchased from Jim Bremner, who at the time owned Bremner & Wiley Inc. development company. Tucker ended up going to work for the firm, which specialized in medical and surgical buildings. Six years ago, the company was bought by Duke Realty, where both he and Bremner now work.

Along the way, Tucker has built strong relationships with Mishawaka-based Franciscan Alliance, the parent of 14 hospitals including St. Francis Health on the south side. He works as Franciscan’s real estate broker as well as developer for the company’s transactions.

He serves on the board of St. Francis Hospital Foundation, where he is raising funds for a hospice house care facility and its general mission to care for the underserved and poor.

He just finished a term on the board of Paramount School of Excellence, a charter school in an economically challenged neighborhood on the near-east side.

Tucker plans to remain involved with the school, with a long-term goal of using his real-estate expertise to rehab some of the empty houses in the neighborhood for families of students, thereby stabilizing the neighborhood as well as the school.

He grew up in Pleasant View in Shelby County and attended Triton Central High School. He also attended Indiana University, before transferring to Indiana Wesleyan University to finish his degree in business management.•

  1. Of what value is selling alcoholic beverages to State Fair patrons when there are many families with children attending. Is this the message we want to give children attending and participating in the Fair, another venue with alooholic consumption onsite. Is this to promote beer and wine production in the state which are great for the breweries and wineries, but where does this end up 10-15 years from now, lots more drinkers for the alcoholic contents. If these drinks are so important, why not remove the alcohol content and the flavor and drink itself similar to soft drinks would be the novelty, not the alcoholic content and its affects on the drinker. There is no social or material benefit from drinking alcoholic beverages, mostly people want to get slightly or highly drunk.

  2. I did;nt know anyone in Indiana could count- WHY did they NOT SAY just HOW this would be enforced? Because it WON;T! NOW- with that said- BIG BROTHER is ALIVE in this Article-why take any comment if it won't appease YOU PEOPLE- that's NOT American- with EVERYTHING you indicated is NOT said-I can see WHY it say's o Comments- YOU are COMMIES- BIG BROTHER and most likely- voted for Obama!

  3. In Europe there are schools for hairdressing but you don't get a license afterwards but you are required to assist in turkey and Italy its 7 years in japan it's 10 years England 2 so these people who assist know how to do hair their not just anybody and if your an owner and you hire someone with no experience then ur an idiot I've known stylist from different countries with no license but they are professional clean and safe they have no license but they have experience a license doesn't mean anything look at all the bad hairdressers in the world that have fried peoples hair okay but they have a license doesn't make them a professional at their job I think they should get rid of it because stateboard robs stylist and owners and they fine you for the dumbest f***ing things oh ur license isn't displayed 100$ oh ur wearing open toe shoes fine, oh there's ONE HAIR IN UR BRUSH that's a fine it's like really? So I think they need to go or ease up on their regulations because their too strict

  4. Exciting times in Carmel.

  5. Twenty years ago when we moved to Indy I was a stay at home mom and knew not very many people.WIBC was my family and friends for the most part. It was informative, civil, and humerous with Dave the KING. Terri, Jeff, Stever, Big Joe, Matt, Pat and Crumie. I loved them all, and they seemed to love each other. I didn't mind Greg Garrison, but I was not a Rush fan. NOW I can't stand Chicks and all their giggly opinions. Tony Katz is to abrasive that early in the morning(or really any time). I will tune in on Saturday morning for the usual fun and priceless information from Pat and Crumie, mornings it will be 90.1
