Three Ice Miller Partners Recognized in List of Indiana’s Top 250 Most Influential Business Leaders

Ice Miller is pleased to announce that partners Michael Millikan, Phil Genetos and Melissa Proffitt were included in the inaugural edition of the Indiana 250, a list of the state’s most influential and impactful business and community leaders. 

Developed and published by IBJ Media, the Indiana 250 accepts nominations for leaders representing a variety of industries, including business, philanthropy, the arts, government, and not-for-profits. Selections for the list are made by IBJ Media editors and staff and consist of those individuals striving to make a difference locally, regionally, and across the state.

“It is an honor to be included among Indiana’s most influential leaders and executives,” Ice Miller Chief Managing Partner, Michael Millikan, said. “I’d also like to congratulate my colleagues on this accomplishment, as it signifies Ice Miller’s commitment to its clients and the greater Indiana community.”

Michael Millikan serves as the chief managing partner of Ice Miller. He focuses his practice on private equity and venture capital, as well as public-private partnerships and entrepreneurial companies. In his public-private partnership experience, Millikan has been involved in several significant projects, including the lease of the Indiana Toll Road and the negotiation of a long-term supply contract for the substitute of natural gas on behalf of the Indiana Finance Authority.

Melissa Proffitt is Ice Miller’s partner-in-charge of client relations and chairs the firm’s Food & Agribusiness Group and Energy Group. Proffitt is active in both local and national politics, and she holds many board leadership positions, including chair of the Indy Chamber and vice chair of the Indiana Black Expo. She also volunteers for causes supporting economic development, diversity, and women's issues.

Phil Genetos represents clients on single and multi-family housing, airports, industrial development, municipal gas utility, ports and 501(c)(3) bonds. Genetos is a founding fellow of the American College of Bond Lawyers and a member of the Indiana, Indianapolis and American Bar Associations, as well as the Indiana Municipal Lawyers Association.
