Indiana Constructors, Inc. (ICI) is pleased to announce the addition of Eric K. “Fish” Fisher as director of talent development. Fisher worked in vertical and horizontal construction, civil engineering and architecture education at Hamilton Heights High School for more than 30 years. He is a national master teacher for Project Lead The Way (PLTW), certified craft instructor for National Center for Construction Education Research (NCCER) and curriculum developer for PLTW and Ivy Tech Community College.

A graduate of Ball State University with a bachelor’s degree in technology education, Fisher earned his master’s degree in building construction management from Purdue University. A former construction Laborer, he is passionate about construction workforce development, lean construction methods and new construction technologies.

Bringing Fisher into the ICI fold under the Work IN Roads banner will allow him to share his expertise with high school students and their parents, teachers and counselors throughout the state. He’ll be developing teachers and curriculum that will, in turn, build the workforce the highway, heavy and utility construction industry needs for the future. Along the way, he’ll be helping industry workers skill up through association programs such as the Indiana Constructors Leadership Institute and the Leadership Development Committee.
