News Secretary Kirwan Names Undersecretary Dormitzer Acting Revenue Commissioner

Secretary for Administration and Finance Leslie Kirwan today appointed Henry Dormitzer, undersecretary for Administration and Finance, to serve as interim Commissioner for the Department of Revenue (DOR). A search for a permanent appointment to replace Revenue Commissioner Alan LeBovidge is underway.

Prior to his A&F appointment, Dormitzer was an investment banker with UBS. As Managing Director and Manager of the Boston office, Dormitzer led the bank's Massachusetts public finance operations, assisting the Commonwealth on major infrastructure and affordable housing activities, including work for transportation authorities and the State Treasury.

A graduate of Harvard University, Dormitzer worked for the Massachusetts Senate Ways and Means Committee earlier in his career. He is Treasurer of the Board of Trustees for Worcester Academy and lives in Wellesley with his wife and their two daughters.

"Alan LeBovidge has done a stellar job as DOR Commissioner and leaves the agency in very good shape," Dormitzer said, noting that DOR's Data Warehouse Project recently won the Federation of Tax Administrators 2007 Award for Outstanding Compliance Program while generating more than $200 million in collections.

An agency under Administration and Finance, DOR collects the state's revenue on which the annual budget is based, administers tax policy and Child Support Enforcement and oversees municipal finance law.

LeBovidge has directed DOR and its 2,200 employees for 5 ½ years after coming out of retirement following a 32-year career with PricewaterhouseCoopers in which he served as a partner and oversaw tax operations.

"I have very much enjoyed my time here working with a group of professionals who deserve all the credit for DOR's successes and increased efficiencies on behalf of the taxpayers of the Commonwealth" LeBovidge said.
