Leadership change at Department of Workforce Development

Greensburg — On Tuesday, Governor Mitch Daniels named Scott Sanders commissioner of the Indiana Department of Workforce Development (DWD).

He replaces Mark W. Everson, who's leaving state government to accept a private-sector position as vice chairman of Houston-based Alliantgroup, LP, which provides specialty tax services for small and mid-sized businesses.

Sanders is DWD deputy commissioner for systems information and analysis, a position he's held July 2010. He was the agency's chief financial officer from November 2006 to July 2010. He also served as chief financial officer for the Bureau of Motor Vehicles from 2005 to 2006.

Before joining state government, Sanders was with First Commonwealth, Inc., serving as chief financial officer from 2000 to 2002 and president from 2003 to 2004. After First Commonwealth was purchased by Guardian Life Insurance, Chicago, Sanders remained as second vice president.

He earned his bachelor's degree from Miami University and his MBA from Northwestern University's J.L. Kellogg Graduate School of Management.

Everson served as commissioner of the IRS from 2003 through 2007, joining the administration in January 2009 as commissioner of the Department of Administration, where he oversaw the state's participation in the successful 2010 census. He joined the DWD in June 2010, leading the agency's efforts to bring solvency to the state's unemployment insurance trust fund.

The transition from Everson to Sanders will occur May 1.
