Award of Distinction
Managing Director, Schneider Huse & Associates LLC
Schneider’s influence from Ball State actually began in fifth grade with his teacher, Irene Park. She was his favorite teacher, an educator with roots at Ball State. Park Hall, the newest residence hall on campus, honors the Park family.
Park inspired Schneider to love learning. He carried that love through his school years and into Ball State. After graduation, he worked with Bank One Capital Markets Inc. (BOCM) as managing principal of BOCM’s Indianapolis office, where he had responsibility for Indiana, Kentucky, and southwest Ohio. Schneider moved on to Schneider Huse & Associates but never forgot the influence of his education.
A 1980 graduate of the Miller College, he also earned a MBA degree from Butler University. He continues to give back to the university by serving as the chairman of the Ball State University Foundation and has been on its board since 1995. He is a member of several organizations including the Ball State University Entrepreneurship Advisory Board, Venture Club of Indiana Inc., Association for Corporate Growth, and the Lacy Leadership Association.
