Radius Indiana to assume functions of Crane Region Alliance

CRANE — Radius Indiana recently announced they will assume the functions of the Crane Region Alliance. Crane Region Alliance’s individual members have long been champions of Crane, and stalwart proponents for strengthening and growing the defense and national security industry in Indiana.

Crane Region Alliance has long taken the lead on many initiatives surrounding the defense sector in Indiana, and was particularly instrumental in providing resources and community support during the 2005 U.S. Department of Defense Base Realignment and Closure.

Radius Indiana serves as the official point of contact for NSA Crane outside the gates. Radius assists business leaders and defense and national security industries with the resources and relationships needed to ensure success.

“I am pleased that the Crane Region Alliance initiatives will continue to live on and thrive under the leadership of Radius Indiana and Becky Skillman,” said Steve Howard, former Crane commander. “Crane Region Alliance looks forward to working with Radius Indiana to help fully realize the potential Crane offers to the region, state and nation.”

“This move represents the building of a stronger, more unified voice as we move forward to help strengthen and grow NSA Crane and the national security and defense industries in Indiana,” Radius President Becky Skillman said. “The Crane Region Alliance membership will remain engaged in a meaningful way, continuing to make significant ongoing contributions to the future of this region.”

Radius Indiana will assume additional communications responsibilities pertinent to NSA Crane formerly administered by the Crane Region Alliance, as it relates to defense and national security. Radius Indiana will also continue to engage in facilitating partnerships to move the region forward, including strengthening collaboration with Monroe County.
