Sawyer named auditor of state

INDIANAPOLIS — Gov. Mike Pence announced this week that Dwayne Sawyer is the new auditor of state for Indiana. He will complete former Auditor Tim Berry’s term, which runs through 2014.

“Dwayne’s professional background, experience in public service, strong character, and involvement with the Republican Party make him the best choice to serve as auditor for the people of Indiana,” Pence said in a press release. “I am honored to appoint him, and I know Dwayne Sawyer will serve all the people of Indiana with professionalism and integrity as our new auditor.”

The auditor of the state has four primary duties: accounting for all of the state’s funds; overseeing and disbursing county, city, town, and school tax distributions; paying the state’s bills; and paying the state’s employees.

Sawyer brings experience in financial systems, information technology, and project management to this position. He most recently worked in software development for Positron. Sawyer also worked on financial management solutions while employed by Roche Diagnostics, Dow AgroSciences, and Eli Lilly and Company.

Sawyer has served with distinction in local government. Elected to the Brownsburg Town Council in 2009, he became president of the council in '12. As town council president, Sawyer led his community through a period of unprecedented growth while managing a budget in excess of $40 million.

Active in local politics since 2005, Sawyer also serves as the secretary of the Fourth District Republican Committee. He is a member of the executive committee of the Hendricks County Republican Party, serves on the board of directors of the Indiana Leadership Forum, and is a 2009 graduate of the program.

Sawyer also sits on the board of directors for the Hendricks County Regional Health YMCA. In 2013, he was appointed by Pence to serve on the Indiana Commission on the Social Status of Black Males. Sawyer graduated from Purdue University.
