Tera Klutz has served as State Comptroller since 2017.
INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana’s Auditor of State has announced her retirement from public service.
Tera Klutz, whose operating title was recently changed by state law to State Comptroller, submitted her resignation to Governor Eric Holcomb this week.
“The past 20 years of leading and serving the financial offices of state and local government have been challenging, rewarding and the opportunity of a lifetime,” Comptroller Klutz said about her career in public service.
Comptroller Klutz was appointed by Holcomb in 2017 as State Auditor. In nearly seven years, she has implemented a more efficient way to pay the state’s bills in half the time, modernized the state’s payroll system and overhauled the Indiana Transparency Portal to include easier access to government finance information.
“The highlight of my public service career has been working with my team of dedicated public servants who provide accountable and reliable back-office functions that keep our State running efficiently and successfully. My service as the State Comptroller afforded me the opportunity to travel the state and meet so many Hoosiers. I am especially grateful for the welcome and respect our local and state officials have shown me,” said Klutz.
Comptroller Klutz will continue her service through November 30.
“I am excited about my next chapter - spending more time with family and friends, and returning to a career in the private sector,” said Comptroller Klutz. “I have committed to helping the Governor, if so desired, to find a qualified individual to serve as Indiana’s next State Comptroller and assist in a smooth transition of responsibilities.”
Governor Eric J. Holcomb gave the following statement regarding Indiana State Comptroller Tera Klutz’s announcement that she will step down:
“I’m grateful for Tera’s service and partnership as Indiana’s State Auditor, now State Comptroller, since I appointed her in 2017. As the first CPA to serve in the position, Tera has been a faithful fiscal steward with a keen focus on transparency and accountability, most notably by modernizing technology. Throughout her tenure, Indiana has been recognized nationally for its responsible financial reporting. I wish her the absolute best in this next chapter.”
