(INDIANAPOLIS) – Gov. Eric J. Holcomb Friday announced that State Budget Director Jason Dudich will leave his post in May to serve as the vice president, chief financial officer, and treasurer of the University of Indianapolis.
“Jason is an enthusiastic problem-solver who has served the state with great skill and integrity,” Gov. Holcomb said. “I wish him continued success in his new role at the University of Indianapolis and thank him for helping us take Indiana to the next level.”
Dudich has served as the state budget director since 2017 after being appointed by Gov. Holcomb. During his tenure, Dudich developed, presented and managed one balanced budget and is diligently worked on a second. He has helped manage the fiscal operations of the state ensuring integrity as well as maintaining strong reserves and the state’s AAA credit rating.
“I want to thank Gov. Holcomb for giving me the opportunity to serve in his administration. I am proud that the State Budget Agency is in a position that the next director will have a strong team in place,” Dudich said. “I am confident that the relationship we’ve built between the budget agency and the state agencies will continue into the future and ensure collaboration to meet the needs of Hoosiers.”
Dudich will continue in his current role through the conclusion of the legislative session and depart the administration in mid-May. Gov. Holcomb will appoint a replacement in the near future.
