Former Treasurer was at term limits
INDIANAPOLIS (January 10, 2023) — Daniel Elliott became Indiana’s 56th State Treasurer on January 1, 2023. Elliott was formally sworn in at a public ceremony in the Statehouse yesterday afternoon. He succeeds outgoing Treasurer Kelly Mitchell, who served since 2014 and was constitutionally ineligible to seek another term.
Elliott has outlined several priorities the Treasurer’s Office will pursue in his administration. He is dedicated to expanding the reach of the Indiana Bond Bank, particularly in its service to rural counties and municipalities. He will continue to shepherd the development of the Indiana Education Scholarship Account Program (INESA), which allows parents and guardians to tailor their child’s educational experience to their child’s needs.
“My team and I are ready to roll up our sleeves and get to work,” said Elliott, who intends to use his background in Information Technology to improve the cybersecurity and data privacy of our state’s financial and banking assets. “We have many issues to address, and we plan to tackle several of them my first year in office, including the impact of ESG investing on the State’s pensions funds and investments. ESG investing has been a growing concern for Hoosiers,” Elliott added.
As the state’s Chief Investment Officer, Treasurer Elliott will investigate and review the investments and assets with a focus on what is in the best financial interest for the State of Indiana. “It is the honor of a lifetime to serve as State Treasurer, and I am grateful to my fellow Hoosiers for their faith and trust,” said Elliott.
Prior to taking office, Elliott served on the Morgan County Council and as President of the Morgan County Redevelopment Commission. For many years, he owned and operated a software development company based in Martinsville.
Elliott lives with his wife and their four children in rural Morgan County.
