Steven Stolen named CEO of IndyHumane

May 9th, 2017

The Humane Society of Indianapolis (IndyHumane) announced today that Steven Stolen has been named the organization’s Chief Executive Officer. Stolen’s official start date is June 1, 2017.

Current CEO John Aleshire announced on September 28, 2016 that he would retire from the Humane Society of Indianapolis after leading the organization for eight years. Following this announcement, IndyHumane began conducting a search for Aleshire’s successor. The organization worked with a third-party consultant, and also spent time discussing the transition with current and former board members, staff, volunteers, and community members. The very thorough process led to the selection of Stolen, and he will lead IndyHumane into its next phase.

Stolen has been involved with organizations that have helped to shape Indianapolis’ cultural and economic landscape. He has held high-profile positions at Butler University, the Indianapolis Children’s Choir, the Indiana Repertory Theatre, Rocketship Education, and most recently, the Indy Chamber. He has also worked as an independent consultant for the Indianapolis Opera and The Julian Center. Stolen is the host of the popular WFYI program Stolen Moments. 

“My family and I have been beneficiaries of the important, life-changing work that is done by the quality people at the Humane Society of Indianapolis,” Stolen said. “It goes without saying that saving animals’ lives is game changing for our community. But, I would go on to say that the way this work connects to people profoundly impacts in a fashion we can only imagine. Whether we are pet owners, animal enthusiasts, or citizens who support the impact IndyHumane makes on our public health and public safety, we benefit from the efforts of this organization. I'm honored and humbled to have an opportunity to build upon the great work of its dedicated staff and supporters.”

Aleshire will work with Stolen over the course of the next month in an ex-officio capacity to help with this organizational transition. Aleshire’s official last day with the organization is June 30, 2017.

“I’m absolutely thrilled that Steven will be leading IndyHumane into its next chapter,” Aleshire said. “He’s been a good friend to me, and a longtime advocate and friend to the animals as well. I have full confidence that IndyHumane’s position in the community will reach even greater heights with Steven on board as CEO.”

In addition, Brian Sullivan, Indy Chamber Board Chairman, commented, “Steven has been very valuable in advancing the Chamber’s Accelerate Initiative to the point where it is now in the implementation phase. IndyHumane found a very passionate and capable leader. Congratulations to the organization and to Steven!”

The IndyHumane staff, board of directors, and volunteers look forward to welcoming Stolen and beginning to work with him in the coming weeks.

“We thank John for all his work building IndyHumane into the organization it is today and wish him well in his retirement,” Kyle Masur, IndyHumane Board Chairman, said. “We’re very pleased to have such a seamless transition as we welcome Steven as IndyHumane’s new CEO.”
