Serving Indiana state government since 2003, Neely was one of the initial employees to join the newly created Indiana Office of Technology. Since that time, he has spent the last decade with the Indiana Office of Technology and has held several other senior positions within the office. Neely received his undergraduate degree from Purdue University’s School of Technology and his MBA from Indiana Wesleyan University.
