Board of Directors Spotlight: David Corbitt
January 20, 2014
It all started with a casual conversation between fellow partners at the law firm of KriegDeVault LLP. Leah Mannweiler and William Neale were board members who educated David Corbitt about Fairbanks and its mission. Leah immediately recognized David’s interest in Fairbanks and the leadership skills he could bring to the board of directors. She was confident that she could pass the torch to him and encouraged others to consider him for the open board member position.
Now David is just a few months shy of serving a year as a Fairbanks board member. He has a passion for education and knows that opportunities like this, to be a community leader, will be a vehicle for that passion in many ways.
“I view Fairbanks’ mission to not only treat those burdened with this illness, but also to prevent people from following some of those same tracks,” David said. “I have younger children and I am always looking for ways to educate them on how to have a healthy lifestyle. Avoiding substance abuse is a part of that education.”
David has over 15 years of experience practicing law and hopes that his background can bring valuable contributions to the Fairbanks committees he serves on—HR Committee and Quality Improvement Committee.
David has worked for Krieg DeVault since 2002 and is now a partner at the firm. His accomplishments include being recognized by the IBJ as one of the “Forty under 40” young leaders in Indianapolis and recognized by Indiana Super Lawyers.
David was born and raised in Indianapolis and after graduating from North Central High School, went on to pursue his undergraduate degree at Central Connecticut State University in New Britain, Connecticut. He later graduated from the Indiana University School of Law in Bloomington, Indiana.
In addition to his involvement at Fairbanks, David has served as a Board of Trustees member for Pike Township, an Indianapolis Bar Association’s Diversity Task Force member and the Founding Chairman of the Diversity Job Fair Subcommittee. He has also served on the United Negro College Fund Advisory Board.
David and his wife Kristin have four children, ranging in age from one to seventeen. He is a dedicated sports fan of the Indianapolis Colts and Indiana Pacers. He enjoys reading novels in his spare time and coaching little league sports teams, something he has done for over eight years.
