Gov. Mitch Daniels announced Friday that Anita Kolkmeier Samuel, assistant general counsel and policy director for the governor, has been named general counsel. Samuel replaces David Pippen, who has resigned to accept a position with Indianapolis law firm Bose McKinney & Evans.

Pippen has served as general counsel since February 2010.

Samuel has been assistant general counsel specializing in state personnel matters since 2005. She also serves as policy director for five state agencies: State Personnel Department, State Library, Commission on Public Records, Commission for Women and Office of the Public Access Counselor. Prior to joining the governor’s office, Samuel was general counsel for Secretary of State Todd Rokita and was a deputy attorney general for Attorney General Steve Carter.

Samuel earned her undergraduate degree at the University of Indianapolis and her law degree at Indiana University School of Law – Indianapolis, now known as the Indiana University Robert H. McKinney School of Law. She is an alumna of the Richard G. Lugar Excellence in Public Service Series and the Indiana Leadership Forum. Samuel is a member of the UIndy Alumni Association board of directors and the Indiana State Bar Association.

The appointment is effective December 19.
