Governor makes Huge appointment to Indiana Finance Authority

Dan Huge has been named public finance director of the Indiana Finance Authority, a position with which he's already familiar.

Gov. Mike Pence announced the appointment Friday.

Huge, who is chief financial officer and chief operating officer at IFA, served as interim director of the agency from January to April this year after Kendra York stepped down. York had led the IFA since 2009.

This time, Huge will succeed former banking executive Dennis Bassett, who recently announced his retirement after just six months on the job.

Prior to joining the IFA, Huge was CFO of the Capital Improvement Board and executive director of the Indiana Bond Bank.

The Purdue University graduate also worked as CFO for Air Road Express, executive director of the Indianapolis Local Public Improvement Bond Bank and as a controller for Southwestern Bell Freedom Phone and Towne Air Freight.

“Dan Huge’s extensive experience in Indiana’s state financial institutions make him uniquely qualified to serve in this new role,” Pence said in written remarks. “I am confident that under Dan’s leadership, the Indiana Finance Authority will continue to provide efficient and effective financing solutions to facilitate and incentivize investment in Indiana in the years to come.”

The IFA oversees state-related debt issuance and helps various agencies with financing.
