INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — Indiana Gov. Holcomb named David Rosenberg as the state’s secretary of commerce on Tuesday.

Rosenberg will take over the role immediately. He had previously served as chief operating officer and chief of staff of the Indiana Economic Development Corp. (IEDC) since 2021.

“I’m incredibly humbled and grateful to Governor Holcomb for the opportunity to lead the IEDC and serve Hoosiers as Indiana’s next secretary of commerce,” Rosenberg said in a Tuesday release. “Over the last two years, we’ve executed against a strategic vision that enables businesses and talent to be successful in Indiana while setting new committed capital investment records and unprecedented investments in communities throughout the state.”

Holcomb also said Ann Lathrop, chief strategy officer of the IEDC, will “continue to lead the agency’s integrated business development strategy while assuming more of the agency’s strategy-focused responsibilities,” the release said.

She will also join Holcomb’s cabinet.
