NOBLESVILLE, IN, January 27 – The Hamilton County Workforce Innovation Network (HCWIN) is proud to announce Robert Kneberg as its Executive Director starting Monday, February 3. The role was previously filled by Dan Canan, who announced his retirement in September 2019.
Robert brings decades of leadership in adult learning and career and technical education to this role. After retiring from 20 years of service in the Air Force in Education and Training Management, Robert served as a grant writer and job developer for the Las Vegas Urban League and most recently as a CTE Specialist on the Indiana Governor’s Workforce Cabinet. When asked about starting the new role, Kneberg said, “I’m really looking forward to cultivating strong, strategic partnerships with both educators and employers to best serve the workforce of Hamilton County.”
HCWIN was established through a generous grant from the Indiana Department of Workforce Development and a partnership between Gaylor Electric and Ivy Tech Community College.
Hamilton County Workforce Innovation Network, a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization, is a county-wide, collaborative workforce development effort between local business partners, K-12 institutions, higher education, and local and state community agencies to provide in-demand workforce solutions in five key sectors: Advanced Manufacturing, Ag Tech, Construction, Healthcare and Innovation & Technology. HC-WIN is made possible through a grant from the Indiana Department of Workforce Development and a partnership between Gaylor Electric and Ivy Tech Community College.
HCWIN has been an integral part of the leadership team that received the 21st Century Talent Region designation from the Governor’s office in December 2019. The designation symbolizes the commitment in the county to collaborate and focus on workforce development, attraction, retention and connection. Hamilton County has identified goals that will elevate opportunities to achieve post-secondary success, provide skills for the county’s growing industries and provide the workforce needed for our growing county.
