Fort Wayne native Tim Berry's career path took another turn Tuesday when Crowe Horwath LLP announced the former state treasurer and auditor has joined the firm as director in the government group of Performance Consulting.
He will specialize in municipal advisory services at Crowe, one of the largest public accounting, consulting and technology firms in the U.S. Berry’s primary responsibility will be assisting local units of government in finding innovation solutions for their financial concerns.
The move came just five months after Gov. Mike Pence named him as head of the Indiana Department of Financial Institutions.
Before that Berry resigned as Chairman of the Indiana Republican Party in March - making this his third job this year.
Berry has held several government positions, including as state auditor and state treasurer, as well as being Allen County treasurer. He grew up in Fort Wayne, but has lived in Indianapolis since 1999.
As state treasurer, he assisted a record number of local units of government with their short- and long-term financing through the Indiana Bond Bank – issuing nearly $9 billion in notes and bonds. He also served as a member of the Indiana Finance Authority board.
Berry received his bachelor’s degree in business administration from Bowling Green State University and his MBA from IPFW.
