When he took office in January 2011, John Doak’s goal was simple: Do everything possible to improve the lives of Oklahomans. He’s done that with groundbreaking initiatives, fiscal conservatism and an unwavering commitment to public service.
Under Commissioner Doak's leadership, the Oklahoma Insurance Department (OID) has transformed itself into a proactive and mobile organization. His team fans out across the state to educate citizens before disaster strikes and offers assistance after it does. OID employees have responded to tornadoes, earthquakes, wildfires and ice storms to help victims quickly recover from catastrophe.
Commissioner Doak’s visionary efforts include hosting the National Tornado Summit, an annual disaster preparedness conference for insurance professionals, emergency managers and meteorologists. With more than 5,000 attendees over six years, it is the nation’s premier event for catastrophe response. His focus on disaster resiliency also earned him a trip to the White House to share best practices with experts from around the country.
Other accomplishments by Commissioner Doak include holding the state’s first-ever rate hearing on earthquake insurance premiums, returning $40.5 million in unspent funds to the state treasury, attracting over 100 captives to Oklahoma and hosting a Healthcare Innovation Summit that offered cutting-edge solutions to the country’s healthcare challenges. He has also testified in front of U.S. Senate committees seeking input on insurance fraud and the health care exchanges.
Commissioner Doak is an active member of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners where he serves as chair of both the Antifraud Task Force and the Midwest Zone. He is also a member of several committees including Executive, International Insurance Relations and Property and Casualty of which is the former chair. Additionally, Commissioner Doak represents the NAIC with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development and is a member of the FEMA National Advisory Council.
Commissioner Doak graduated from the University of Oklahoma with a Bachelor of Arts in Political Science. Shortly after college he launched a successful insurance business in Tulsa. Later, he served as an executive for several risk and insurance service companies including Marsh, Aon, HNI and Ascension.
