Dan Schmidt is joining Thomas P. Miller & Associates, Inc. (TPMA) as Senior Director for Indiana. Schmidt was energy, environment, transportation, and gaming policy director under former Indiana Governor Mike Pence. Schmidt also holds a masters degree from the University of Colorado School of Business and is a licensed attorney.
