(INDIANAPOLIS) — Indiana Chamber of Commerce President and CEO Kevin Brinegar reflects on the passing of billionaire hotel magnate Dean White of Merrillville-based White Lodging:

“Dean White was a tremendous businessman and civic leader. No matter the cause or need, you could count on him to come through. What I will remember most is Dean had such a passion for the state and wanted to see it flourish. He leaves behind a wonderful legacy of a life fully lived; he so positively impacted not only Northwest Indiana but the entire state.”


The Indiana Chamber partners with 25,000 members and investors – representing over four million Hoosiers – to achieve the mission of “cultivating a world-class environment which provides economic opportunity and prosperity.”
