TROY WILSON, SR.
Governor Mary Fallin selected Troy L. Wilson, Sr. as her first appointee and chairman of the Oklahoma Workers’ Compensation Commission. Wilson worked from 1967 to 1980 for Xerox Corporation, working out of offices in New York, Texas and Oklahoma City. He served as the Oklahoma branch manager for Xerox from 1972 to 1980, managing over 300 employees.
From 1980 to 1985, he was the president and owner of Business Unlimited Inc., a business brokerage organization with offices in Oklahoma City and Tulsa.
In 1985, Wilson left Oklahoma to become the CEO of Montgomery Bank, a community banking institution with over $900 million in assets. In 2006, he retired as CEO and became Chairman of the Board of Montgomery Bancorporation, Inc.
Wilson was appointed by former Missouri Governor John Ashcroft to serve on the White House Conference on Small Business. He also served as chairman of the Missouri Bankers Association, president of the United Methodist Men’s Organization, and as a member of the Board of Directors for the Graduate School of Banking at Louisiana State University.
“Troy Wilson is a successful business owner and entrepreneur,” said Fallin. “He knows that good businesses treat their workers – especially injured workers – fairly. He’s also seen firsthand how skyrocketing worker’s compensation costs can cut into a company’s bottom line and stifle growth. These lessons will help to make Troy a balanced and experienced voice on the new Oklahoma Workers’ Compensation Commission.”
Mark Liotta most recently served as the Chief Deputy to the Tulsa Board of County Commissioners. He was appointed as a Commissioner to the Oklahoma Workers’ Compensation Commission effective May 27, 2015.
He served seven years as an infantry officer in Oklahoma’s 45th Infantry Brigade as a Platoon Leader, earning two Oklahoma Commendation medals.
Mark worked 18 years in the private sector for a pipeline services company in both construction and manufacturing, as a quality manager, and as a human resources manager.
From 1996 to 2006, Mark served five terms in the Oklahoma House of Representatives, where he served in six different leadership positions, including Chairman of the Republican Caucus and Presiding Officer of the House floor.
He also served as Chairman of the House Appropriations Subcommittee on General Government and Transportation where he was responsible for 20 state agency budgets, totaling $490 million.
A native Tulsan, Mark and his wife Alice have five grown children, and have hosted three foreign exchange students from China.
