RDC resident makes waves in professional life

When he left his hometown of Tipton to go to Indiana University, Luke Phenicie wanted to pursue a career with the FBI. The Zionsville resident realized he could do much more than go into the FBI after earning his accounting degree: He worked in investment banking in St. Louis, a private equity firm in Chicago and is now a partner with HKW, a private equity firm in Indianapolis.

Phenicie recently was named to the Indianapolis Business Journal's Forty under 40, which recognizes central Indiana people who have become leaders in their fields.

Phenicie's journey to Zionsville has taken several turns, starting with his decision to work in investment banking instead of the FBI.

"My dad was a Vietnam veteran and, growing up, I always looked up to what he and all the veterans do," Phenicie said. "(Going into the FBI) was my way of translating that respect into a career."

Phenicie found out the best way to pursue a career with the FBI was through an accounting degree, law degree or learning another language.
