Patrick "PJ" McGrew, executive director of the Governor's Workforce Cabinet since 2019, is leaving the post to take a new job at Indianapolis-based student loan provider INvestEd.

The leader of the state bureau charged with developing a talent-driven education and workforce system for Indiana is stepping down.

The governor's office announced Friday that Patrick "PJ" McGrew, executive director of the Governor's Workforce Cabinet since 2019, is leaving the post to take a new job at Indianapolis-based student loan provider INvestEd.

"Workforce development has been a pillar of my administration from day one, and PJ has been at the forefront, driving our progress on many key initiatives, including the Next Level Jobs program," said Gov. Eric Holcomb.

Gov. Eric Holcomb and Indiana's top two health officials speak about COVID-19 in the Hoosier State on Dec. 29, 2021

Next Level Jobs has provided Workforce Ready Grants to help more than 25,000 Hoosiers earn at no cost a high-demand job training certificate that's translated to an average wage gain of $6,800 per person.

Another 3,000 Indiana employers have used the program's Employer Training Grant to "upskill" nearly 30,000 employees, according to the governor's office.

McGrew said it's been "a tremendous honor" to serve the state under Holcomb's leadership.

This episode of the "Riding Shotgun with NWI Cops" series takes viewers around Munster in the midst of the holiday season.

"I'm grateful to have worked with many dedicated public servants to move the needle in several important ways to make Indiana a place where Hoosiers of all backgrounds have the education and training needed to prosper and employers have the skilled workforce they need to succeed," McGrew said.

Teresa Lubbers, Indiana commissioner for higher education, will serve as interim leader of the Governor's Workforce Cabinet until her previously announced retirement takes effect in March.

The governor's office said Holcomb plans to announce a new workforce cabinet director and higher education commissioner at later dates.
