Town Manager

The Town Manager, Jacob Blasdel, is the administrative manager for the Town of Speedway. Under Indiana Code 36-5-5, Jacob is appointed by and serves at the direction of the Town Council, overseeing the delivery of essential public services including public safety, roads and streets, water and waste water utilities, storm water, and parks and recreation, while also working toward long-term improvement. 

Jacob became the town manager in April of 2017, building on a 10-year career in finance and infrastructure. Most recently, he worked in project finance at The AES Corporation, financing utility infrastructure and electric generation projects in Oklahoma, Southern California, Maryland, and Ohio. He also previously spent time in the public sector, serving at the State of Indiana in the Office of Management and Budget and Indiana Finance Authority during the second term of the Daniels Administration.

Jacob has lived in Speedway since 2012 and resides here with his wife and daredevil, racing enthusiast 3-year-old.  As a lifelong Hoosier, returning his professional focus to Indiana and the community he lives in was an opportunity he was thrilled to accept.

Jacob received a bachelor’s degree in economics from DePauw University and an MBA with a concentration in finance from Indiana University Kelley School of Business.
