Karl Browning Joins The Schneider Corporation as COO

Indianapolis – (March 1, 2010) – The Schneider Corporation (http://www.schneidercorp.com), a provider of creative solutions for land, infrastructure and facilities projects that help increase revenue, lower costs and mitigate risk, announced that Karl Browning has joined the company as Chief Operating Officer.

Browning previously was commissioner of the Indiana Department of Transportation (INDOT), where he served in Governor Mitch Daniels’ cabinet.  Prior to being named commissioner of INDOT, Browning was Chief Information Officer of Indiana’s Office of Technology (IOT).

Browning left public service in 2009 to return to the private sector.  At that time, Governor Daniels said, “Karl Browning has been spectacular in this job. I did everything I could to keep him as long as I could.  His legacy will live for generations through record-breaking road building that he has put in motion for Indiana.”

Browning has spent nearly two-thirds of his career managing service delivery organizations with two Ross Perot service companies, EDS and Perot Systems, helping customers improve their operations and profitability.  Immediately prior to joining the Daniels’ administration, Browning served on the executive team of Golden Rule Insurance as senior vice president and Chief Information Officer.

“We are delighted to welcome Karl to The Schneider Corporation,” said Victoria Schneider Temple, CEO and chairman of The Schneider Corporation.  “Karl’s background in customer-focused service delivery will enhance Schneider’s momentum of increasing value to our customers, improving our efficiency and finding creative solutions to our clients’ problems.”

“This is an exciting time to be joining The Schneider Corporation,” said Browning.  “While the engineering, construction and architecture industries have changed dramatically over the past few years, Schneider has emerged as a financially sound company with a renewed focus on the customer.  I look forward to helping take the company’s growth to a new level.”
