Ryan Vaughn has spent the past eight years leading the Indiana Sports Corp., a job that requires constant work attracting big sports events to the city and then pulling them off once they arrive. The goal is to always have a pipeline of events coming to help bolster the region’s tourism industry and economy overall.

IBJ reporter Mickey Shuey (in for vacationing host Mason King) talks with Vaughn about what he’s learned during his time in the post and why he’s leaving to take a job in the tech sector.

Plus, Shuey presses Vaughn about the challenge the next Indiana Sports Corp. president will face—and whether Vaughn might someday run for mayor.
