“Bob is a hard-working public servant who has taken his private sector experiences and leveraged them to improve our state,” Gov. Holcomb said. “I’m confident that under his direction the Department of Revenue will continue to ensure that Hoosiers receive great government service at a great value.”

Grennes has served as the chief operating officer at the Indiana Department of Revenue since 2017, where he has worked to improve the department’s operations and customer service. He also serves on the Project NextDOR Executive Steering Committee, which leads a modernization project to allow Hoosiers to use state-of-the-art technology to file tax returns, make payments and manage accounts.

Grennes built his career over four decades in the private sector leading information technology and financial services organizations – including at USA Funds, USA Group and Sallie Mae – while holding a variety of management, executive and board positions.

The Department of Revenue administers 65 tax types and annually processes nearly $21 billion of tax revenue including processing millions of tax returns and completing thousands of audits.

Grennes’s new position is effective Feb. 1.
