LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) —The Senior Executive Vice President of Subaru of Indiana Automotive, one of Tippecanoe County's largest employers, is retiring at the end of the year. Tom Easterday will retire on Dec. 31.

Easterday joined SIA in 1989 as Corporate Counsel, according to his biography. In addition to Senior Executive Vice President, he also served as Secretary and Chief Legal Officer at SIA. 

According to the magazine for Subaru "Drive," SIA's production volume has tripled in the past decade. Since 1989, SIA has produced more than 5 million vehicles. 

Easterday was named Business Leader of the Year for 2017 by the Indiana Chamber of Commerce. At the time, those who chose him said Easterday stood out for the growth of the company, and for the respect he's won from others.

Easterday has close to 6,000 associates working under him.

He said while nobody will "take over" per se, four people, who used to report to him, have been promoted. Doug Meyer, Rachel Hazaray, Scott Brand and Ed Wulbrecht will all share his responsibilities. 

Enjoy retirement, Tom!
