Governor Eric J. Holcomb appointed Sue McCloskey to the Indiana Economic Development Corporation (IEDC) Board of Directors today. Prior to establishing Fair Oaks Farms, McCloskey and her husband ran a successful dairy veterinary consulting practice in southern California before moving to New Mexico to start a 5,000-cow dairy farm. In New Mexico, they created Select Milk Producers, which is currently the fifth largest milk cooperative in the country.
In 1999, McCloskey moved to Indiana to create one of the largest dairy farms in the country and simultaneously opened Fair Oaks Farms. She has previously served as the creative director for Fair Oaks Farms as well as a spokesperson for Fairlife, Select’s dairy-based health and wellness company. McCloskey has also served on the Board of Trustees for Culver Academies in Culver, Indiana.
She fills a vacancy left by Angela Braly, who served as a member of the IEDC Board of Directors from 2013 to 2019. McCloskey will serve a four-year term, expiring in April 2023.
