Brandye Hendrickson named commissioner of Ind. DOT

Gov. Mike Pence appointed Brandye Hendrickson as commissioner of the Indiana Department of Transportation on Wednesday, effective immediately following the resignation of Karl Browning from the post. 

“With more than a decade of executive experience in state government, Brandye Hendrickson has demonstrated a commitment to public service and a nearly unmatched depth of understanding of the Indiana Department of Transportation," Pence said. “I am confident that she will uphold the agency’s mission and serve Hoosiers well as commissioner.”

Since 2007, Hendrickson has served as deputy commissioner for the department, specifically overseeing the agency’s Greenfield District Operations, which encompasses East Central Indiana, including Indianapolis. She was responsible for a workforce of more than 360 employees, and was in charge of managing an annual construction budget of $700 million, in addition to a $50 million operating budget.

“I appreciate the opportunity to continue my service to Hoosiers as head of the Indiana Department of Transportation,” Hendrickson said. “I look forward to contributing further to the accomplishments of the Pence administration.”
