Entry Description

Indianapolis – Governor Mike Pence today named Andrew Kossack as commissioner of the Indiana Department of Revenue (DOR). Kossack currently serves as chief of staff for DOR, where he oversees the Department’s business support divisions, which include finance, information technology, public relations, human resources, and project management.

“Andrew Kossack’s experience and extensive leadership in state government make him the ideal person to follow Commissioner Alley,” said Governor Pence. “Though he has big shoes to fill, I know that Andrew will take the lead with distinction and continue the enhancements, streamlining, and innovations that taxpayers deserve from their Department of Revenue.”

Before joining DOR, Kossack served as general counsel and policy director for the Indiana Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and as education and workforce policy director in the Office of Governor Mike Pence. He started his state career as public access counselor under Governor Mitch Daniels, after working at Barnes & Thornburg LLP. Most recently, Kossack served as deputy policy director with the Foundation for Excellence in Education, Inc.

Kossack earned his undergraduate degree from Butler University and his law degree from the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law. He lives in Zionsville with his wife and two sons.

His appointment is effective July 17, 2015, upon the retirement of current DOR Commissioner Mike Alley.

“I'm thankful for the years Mike Alley has served the people of Indiana as Commissioner of the Department of Revenue,” said Governor Pence.  “He has led the Department with great integrity and dedication, and the Department has become better for it. We wish him the best in his upcoming retirement."
