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 $34 million in unspent funds to the state treasury, attracting almost 100 captives to Oklahoma and hosting a Healthcare Innovation Summit that offered cutting-edge solutions to the country’s healthcare challenges.
Commissioner Doak is an active member of the National Association of Insurance Commissioners where he serves as chair of the Property and Casualty Insurance Committee, chair of the Antifraud Task Force, vice chair of the Surplus Lines Task Force and vice chair of the Midwest Zone. He is also a member of the Innovation and Technology Task Force, a new effort to monitor technology, data collection and cybersecurity developments in the insurance industry. Commissioner Doak shapes important national insurance policy issues as a member of the Government Relations Leadership Council and international insurance issues as a member of the International Insurance Relations Leadership Group. Additionally, Commissioner Doak represents the NAIC with the international Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development.
