As we begin the 2023 calendar year, the IBB would like to formally welcome Indiana's 56th Treasurer of State as our newest Board Chair!
Daniel Elliott was elected as the 56th Indiana State Treasurer on November 8th, 2022. In this role, Treasurer Elliott serves as the Chair of the Indiana Bond Bank, the Statewide E-911 Board, the Indiana Education Savings Authority, the ABLE Authority, and the Sole Trustee of the State Police Pension Trust, among a number of other positions. As the state’s chief investment officer, he oversees the management of $16 billion on a daily basis.
Prior to becoming Treasurer, Daniel Elliott worked as a small business owner focused on software development and website design. Treasurer Elliott has also served in local government as a member of the Morgan County Council County and President of the Morgan County Redevelopment Commission, where he worked to create economic development opportunities in Morgan county. As President of the RDC, he has learned the importance of developing infrastructure for our local communities. As a County Councilman, he joined his fellow councilman in leading a county government of more than 350 employees. Daniel has seen firsthand the challenges local elected officials face.
Daniel Elliott grew up in a town called Nebraska, in rural Jennings County. Now, he lives on a farm in Morgan County with his wife Laura, and their four children. He is a proud school choice dad and a believer in traditional Hoosier values. Treasurer Elliott holds a B.A. in Business and Computer Science from Utah Valley University, and is the first Latter-Day Saint to be elected to statewide office in the State of Indiana.
In his free time, Daniel loves to spend time with his family and can often be found riding horses on his land and getting his boots dirty.
The Office of the Indiana State Treasurer is one of five constitutional offices and has broad responsibilities and authority in the areas of investment and finance. Kelly Mitchell serves as the 55th Treasurer of State, the fifth highest-ranking statewide government official. The Treasurer is elected statewide every four years. In addition to being the State’s chief investment officer and banker, the Treasurer serves as chairperson or a member of numerous State boards, commissions and authorities.
Below are some of the Treasurer’s key responsibilities:
We uphold fiduciary responsibilities while investing and safeguarding public funds, overseeing the management of the state’s financial assets, and providing accurate and timely funding to state and local stakeholders.
As stewards for the State of Indiana, we will serve Hoosiers with honesty, integrity, transparency, and dedication. We will do all we can to protect and strengthen Indiana’s fiscal present and future, while learning from the past. With steadfast determination, we will deepen relationships, stay open to possibilities, and listen well to the people we are privileged to serve.
