David Resnick Inducted Into the Hoosier Heritage Hall of Fame
For his commitment to community service in central Indiana, KSM chair of the board and managing partner emeritus David Resnick was inducted into the Hoosier Heritage Hall of Fame June 23.
Resnick was one of six community leaders honored during Hoosier Heritage Night, an annual event that benefits Heritage Place of Indianapolis, a not-for-profit organization that supports older adults through a combination of center-based activities and in-home services.
Along with Resnick, 2021 inductees include Dennis Bland, president of the Center for Leadership Development; Teresa Lubbers, Indiana Commissioner for Higher Education; Myra Selby, an Ice Miller partner and former associate justice of the Indiana Supreme Court; Joanna Taft, executive director of the Harrison Center for the Arts; and Robbie Williams, community advocate, businesswoman, and coordinator of the 7th Indiana Congressional District.
“I am honored and humbled to be included among a group of such accomplished and deserving men and women who have all done so much for Indianapolis,” said Resnick. “Serving my fellow Hoosiers has always been of great importance to me, and I look forward to many more years of involvement in our central Indiana community.”
Heritage Place established Hoosier Heritage Night and the Hoosier Heritage Hall of Fame in 1984 as a way to honor Hoosiers who have made a tremendous impact on the Indianapolis community. Over 37 years, more than 180 men and women have been inducted into Heritage Place’s Hoosier Heritage Hall of Fame.
“For the past 37 years, Hoosier Heritage Night has given Heritage Place of Indianapolis the opportunity to recognize the incredible work of Hoosiers in our community,” said Ed Alexander, Heritage Place executive director. “Not only are our six 2021 inductees leaders in their fields, they’ve prioritized giving back for the betterment of us all in Indianapolis.”
Growing up on the north side of Indianapolis, Resnick was instilled with the belief that everyone has a duty to better their community. He carried this principle into adulthood and as KSM’s managing partner made community involvement central to the firm’s culture.
Resnick’s commitment to community has left a deep imprint on KSM. During his time as managing partner, he established KSM’s annual Community Day, the firm’s corporate matching and Time and Talents programs, and KSM Cares, a multi-pronged initiative that began as a way to help people and businesses directly affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. KSM also sponsors and supports dozens of community events and organizations every year that reflect the different interests and passions of the firm’s employees.
On an individual level, Resnick currently serves on the boards of Indiana Landmarks, University of Indianapolis (currently serving as vice chair of the board of trustees), IU Health Philanthropy Council, Beth-El Zedeck Foundation (previously serving as chairman), Indianapolis Chamber of Commerce, Greater Indianapolis Progress Committee, and WFYI Foundation (previously serving as board chair). David also serves as an emeritus director on the board of the United Way of Central Indiana (previously serving as board chair).
Additionally, Resnick is past president and lifetime member of the board of directors of Congregation Beth-El Zedeck and past chair of the Arts Council of Indianapolis. He has also served on the boards of Methodist Health Foundation, Jewish Federation of Greater Indianapolis, Jewish Family and Children’s Services, and American Cancer Society.
