Karen Fuson Ferguson


I am a strategic, purpose-driven senior executive experienced in leading teams through complex digital and organizational transformations at scale.  I have deep experience in both business-to-business and business-to-consumer sales and marketing.

I graduated from Northwestern University's Medill School of Journalism and in time became the second female president and publisher of the Indianapolis Star.

I was recently inducted into Medill's Hall of Achievement in honor of my work and leadership in the media business and for my passionate commitment to a free press and equality for all. I serve on the Riley Children's Foundation Board of Governors and have been actively engaged in multiple community boards, including Central Indiana Corporate Partnership, Visit Indy, Indianapolis Zoo, Phoenix Chamber of  Commerce, Fresh Start Women's Foundation, and Junior Achievement.
