While not his official job title, Tom Easterday has become quite the tour guide.
The Subaru of Indiana Automotive, Inc. executive has been known to do as many as a handful a month around the company's Lafayette manufacturing facility. Whether leading top industry officials or a group of young students, he has a favorite opening line.
"I always like to say that if someone stops for a cup of coffee on their way into the plant," Easterday said, "then they have put more trash into the landfill than we have for the entire year."
