Back to TopCommentsE-mailPrintBookmark and Share

Trustees of The Lacy Foundation announced Thursday that they have elected Jill S. Lacy as president of the foundation.

She succeeds Margot Lacy Eccles, who served in that role for more than 30 years before her death June 25.

In making the announcement, Andre Lacy, chairman of LDI Ltd., said Jill Lacy’s appointment had been in the works for more than a year.

“Last year, Margot began the process of succession planning for the foundation,” he said in a prepared statement. “She believed, and all of us agree, that Jill is the perfect family member to take our foundation into the future. We are thrilled to have her at the helm.”

She also will serve on the Stanley K. Lacy Advisory Council and was a member of the most recent SKL executive leadership class.

Jill Lacy is a graduate of Ball State University, where she earned a double major in political science and exercise science. She holds a master’s degree in higher education administration from Indiana University and completed the Executive Education Program in Corporate Board Governance at Kellogg Graduate School of Management at Northwestern University.

She is the co-chair of the grants committee for the Women’s Fund of Central Indiana, a fund of the Central Indiana Community Foundation.

Lacy is married to Peter Lacy, Andre Lacy’s youngest son and nephew of Margot Eccles. They live in Carmel and have three children.

  1. How can any company that has the cash and other assets be allowed to simply foreclose and not pay the debt? Simon, pay the debt and sell the property yourself. Don't just stiff the bank with the loan and require them to find a buyer.

  2. If you only knew....

  3. The proposal is structured in such a way that a private company (who has competitors in the marketplace) has struck a deal to get "financing" through utility ratepayers via IPL. Competitors to BlueIndy are at disadvantage now. The story isn't "how green can we be" but how creative "financing" through captive ratepayers benefits a company whose proposal should sink or float in the competitive marketplace without customer funding. If it was a great idea there would be financing available. IBJ needs to be doing a story on the utility ratemaking piece of this (which is pretty complicated) but instead it suggests that folks are whining about paying for being green.

  4. The facts contained in your post make your position so much more credible than those based on sheer emotion. Thanks for enlightening us.

  5. Please consider a couple of economic realities: First, retail is more consolidated now than it was when malls like this were built. There used to be many department stores. Now, in essence, there is one--Macy's. Right off, you've eliminated the need for multiple anchor stores in malls. And in-line retailers have consolidated or folded or have stopped building new stores because so much of their business is now online. The Limited, for example, Next, malls are closing all over the country, even some of the former gems are now derelict.Times change. And finally, as the income level of any particular area declines, so do the retail offerings. Sad, but true.
