This edition of Northwest Indiana Business Magazine comes during a time when the world faces a challenge unlike anything in recent history. Interviews conducted for the articles throughout this edition often mention the crisis created by the COVID-19 pandemic. Our writers learned business and community leaders adapted to the situation, providing expertise to guide clients and customers through uncertain times. The health care industry adapted as did higher education. Both already had been modifying their
business approaches to cater to the changing needs of students and the communities where they operate. Marketing professionals were proactive and worked with clients on ways to stay in front of their customers even when interaction was limited. Service organizations, including Meals on Wheels of Northwest Indiana, found heightened demand during the crisis but rose to the challenge as did food delivery provider DineIn. And just before the country faced the pandemic, Region native Rob Chapek took the reins of The Walt Disney Co., one of the world’s most recognizable brands.
We hope you enjoy this issue!
