Chief Executive magazine reflects Huntbridge’s views on the remarkable business opportunities in Indiana.

Indiana ranked first in the Midwest and fifth in the nation for doing business by Chief Executive magazine, maintaining its position as a top state for business.

The magazine’s “Best & Worst States For Business” ranking is based on surveys of more than 500 CEOs. According to Chief Executive, the results of the 13th annual survey show that CEOs favor states with friendly tax and regulatory climates, quality workforces and strong living environments, which includes cost of living, education and state and local attitudes toward business.

“Over the last 12 years, Indiana has worked to create a world-class economy by passing balanced state budgets, reducing regulatory burdens and investing in the future,” Governor Eric J. Holcomb said. “Today’s ranking reaffirms the benefits of our pro-business climate as we work to take Indiana to the next level.”
