Secretary of Commerce Mitch Roob has announced he is leaving his position to take a job as president of a healthcare technology company.

Indiana has a new Secretary of Commerce after it was announced Thursday that Mitch Roob is leaving the position.

Roob is stepping down as the head of the Indiana Economic Development Corporation to take a job as president and CEO of WoundVision, a healthcare technology company. Roob previously served in Mitch Daniels’ administration as the head of the Family and Social Services Administration before heading up the Commerce Department for the last two and a half years.

In a statement, Governor Daniels praised Roob for giving up what he called seven of his “prime earnings years” to serve the state.

Taking Roob’s place is Daniel Hasler, who has been working with the IEDC since February and spent more than 30 years working for Eli Lilly before retiring in 2010. Hasler will officially begin his new role September 16.
