Indiana University Health hired Mary Beth Claus as its general counsel, replacing Norm Tabler, who retired from IU Health in December. However, Tabler has now agreed to return to the Indianapolis law firm Faegre Baker Daniels LLP, where he practiced before joining the hospital system in the 1990s. Claus, who is also a former partner at Faegre Baker Daniels, was most recently deputy chief legal officer and director of health care regulatory affairs for the Cleveland Clinic, where she oversaw all the medical center’s regulatory and legal compliance matters. She holds a bachelor’s degree from the University of Cincinnati and a law degree from Indiana University. Tabler will rejoin Faegre Baker Daniels’ health care practice, which he once chaired. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Princeton University, a master’s degree from Yale University, and a law degree from Columbia University.

Dr. Troy Payner, president and managing partner at Goodman Campbell Brain and Spine, has been appointed clinical chief of neuroscience for St. Vincent Indianapolis Hospital. He will maintain his clinical practice. Payner also serves as vice chairman of neurological surgery at the Indiana University School of Medicine. He earned his medical degree from the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine.

Indianapolis-based Dow AgroSciences announced Monday that former Indiana Director of Agriculture Joseph Kelsay is joining the company’s global regulatory and government affairs teams as senior manager of biotechnology affairs. Kelsay had served under former Gov. Mitch Daniels as director of Indiana’s State Department of Agriculture since 2009 before leaving the post this month under the change in administrations. Gov. Mike Pence last week appointed Gina Sheets to replace Kelsay. He holds a degree in agricultural economics from Purdue University.

WellPoint Inc. named Patrick Blair its chief marketing officer. He most recently served as chief marketing and development officer for Amerigroup Corp., which WellPoint acquired in December for $4.9 billion. Blair received his bachelor’s degree in economics and master’s degree in health administration from Indiana University. He also holds an MBA from Henley Business School at the University of Reading in England.

  1. I am also a "vet" of several Cirque shows and this one left me flat. It didn't have the amount of acrobatic stunts as the others that I have seen. I am still glad that I went to it and look forward to the next one but I put Varekai as my least favorite.

  2. Looking at the two companies - in spite of their relative size to one another -- Ricker's image is (by all accounts) pretty solid and reputable. Their locations are clean, employees are friendly and the products they offer are reasonably priced. By contrast, BP locations are all over the place and their reputation is poor, especially when you consider this is the same "company" whose disastrous oil spill and their response was nothing short of irresponsible should tell you a lot. The fact you also have people who are experienced in franchising saying their system/strategy is flawed is a good indication that another "spill" has occurred and it's the AM-PM/Ricker's customers/company that are having to deal with it.

  3. Daniel Lilly - Glad to hear about your points and miles. Enjoy Wisconsin and Illinois. You don't care one whit about financial discipline, which is why you will blast the "GOP". Classic liberalism.

  4. Isn't the real reason the terrain? The planners under-estimated the undulating terrain, sink holes, karst features, etc. This portion of the route was flawed from the beginning.

  5. You thought no Indy was bad, how's no fans working out for you? THe IRl No direct competition and still no fans. Hey George Family, spend another billion dollars, that will fix it.
