Governor Eric Holcomb has named Lindsay Hyer executive director of the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency, succeeding Deborah Frye who announced her retirement from the post. Frye, who was named executive director in 2015, helped oversee the expansion of PLA’s online services, making it easier for the 1 million annual customers who seek license applications and renewals.
Frye’s last day is Friday.
Hyer worked as the chief of staff for Indiana Secretary of State Holli Sullivan where she served as the senior advisor and oversaw all financial and operating activities for the office.
The governor’s office says Hyer managed the growth of the agency’s portal, INBiz, that helps businesses ensure they are compliant with state laws and regulations.
Before her role with the Secretary of State’s office, Hyer worked for the Indiana Alcohol & Tobacco Commission as general counsel, where she oversaw the licensing and regulation of Indiana’s alcohol permittees.
