The Indiana Department of Revenue today announced Valerie Hunt as the department’s new chief financial officer. Hunt has served as deputy controller for the department since July 2012. Hunt will lead the department’s finance division, which includes accounting operations and reporting, electronic funds transfer and related banking functions, contracts and accounts payable, internal audit, and financial planning and analysis.
“Valerie has done an outstanding job of enhancing our accounting and budgeting process and reporting,” said Commissioner Mike Alley. “She is uniquely qualified to assume the role of chief financial officer for the department and build on our recent success.”
Hunt has experience in financial management at Brightpoint, Rolls Royce and Guidant Corporation. Hunt is a CPA with a BS in accounting and an MBA in finance from the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University, Bloomington. She replaces Mike Ashley, who was appointed chief financial officer by Governor Mitch Daniels in May 2012. Ashley is retiring at the end of the year.
