Former bank executive Mike Alley will continue in his position as commissioner of Indiana’s Department of Revenue under Gov.-elect Mike Pence.
Pence announced Wednesday afternoon that Alley, 56, will make the transition to the new administration in January. Alley, a former president of Fifth Third Bank’s central Indiana operations, took over as the state’s revenue commissioner in April.
He previously served as chairman of Patriot Investments LLC, which makes early-stage investments.
Prior to that, he was CEO of Evansville-based Integra Bank Corp., which federal banking regulators shut down in July 2011. Alley had been hired in 2008 to try to save the debt-ridden bank but couldn't raise enough capital to pay off the bank's massive loan losses.
Pence also announced Wednesday that Robert Wynkoop, 42, will continue as commissioner of the Indiana Department of Administration. Wynkoop was named to the post in 2010.
Anita Kolkmeier Samuel, 36, will serve as Pence’s director of state personnel. She currently is general counsel for Gov. Mitch Daniels.
