Indiana Lieutenant Governor-elect Suzanne Crouch has selected Tracy Barnes to serve as chief of staff. Barnes currently serves as deputy auditor of operations in the Auditor of State’s office.
Barnes previously served as director of information systems in the auditor’s office before being promoted to his current position in October. He is also the former president and CEO of Indianapolis-based consulting firm ENTAP Inc.
