State Representative Sean Eberhart was born in Shelby County and is a life-long resident of the county. He attended the former Marion Elementary School and is a 1984 graduate of Shelbyville High School.

After high school, he enrolled at Purdue University in West Lafayette and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Engineering in 1988. After graduation, he worked for Overhead Door Corporation in Shelbyville as an industrial engineer and then as a manufacturing department manager. In 1991, Rep. Eberhart began work with Roche Diagnostics in Indianapolis as an industrial engineer and then as a quality engineer. While at Roche Diagnostics, he enrolled at Indiana University and received a Master of Business degree (MBA) in 1996. After receiving his MBA, he decided to pursue the dream of owning his own business and started Advantage Tool Rental, a rental and sales company, located in Shelbyville. Rep. Eberhart left Roche Diagnostics in 1997 and began to work full-time at the business.

Advantage Tool Rental is a local, successful small business. Rep. Eberhart built the company from the ground up and currently serves as the company’s President. He is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the business. The company was originally located in a small building in an industrial park on Elston Drive. Due to the success of the business, Rep. Eberhart relocated the company in 1999 to its current location at the corner of Michigan Road and Progress Road in Shelbyville. Advantage Tool Rental has expanded its offering of products and services over the years. This year, Rep. Eberhart and Advantage Tool Rental are celebrating their 20th year as a business.

In the Legislature, Rep. Eberhart is a strong advocate for individual rights, personal responsibility, limited government and fiscal integrity, and he uses these core principles as he considers legislation.

Rep. Eberhart and his wife Rebecca have been married since 1989 and reside just outside Shelbyville. Together they have 3 children, Nathan, Nicholas and Danielle.

House District 57 consists of all of Shelby County and a large portion of Bartholomew County along with a small section of Hancock County in central Indiana.
