Mark Lawrance has resigned from his position as director of the the Indiana University Public Policy Institute after less than two years.
Lawrance, 61, a former senior vice president at the Indiana Chamber of Commerce, joined the institute in June 2014. He said Friday he left the institute for another opportunity, which he could not announce yet, but that the new job was “a better fit.” His last day at the institute was Thursday.
“I have the opportunity to get the ideal job for this stage of life, for my experiences and what I bring to the table,” Lawrance said.
Lawrance said he had a good experience with the institute and called it a “good resource for the community.”
A former vice president of the MCL Inc. restaurant chain, Lawrance had also worked on policy issues at the Indiana General Assembly and for several governors' administrations.
