"John Klipsch was a key figure in the success of Lucas Oil Stadium, which was recently named the top NFL stadium and one of the best stadiums in the world. He understood the needs of the State, the City and the Colts on this project and did a masterful job of accommodating all parties while protecting the interests of his client. He was tough but fair and honest, and a pleasure to work with. I don’t know of anyone more qualified and capable to be an owner’s rep in the construction of a sports facility or otherwise."
