John D. Doak was sworn into office as the 12th insurance commissioner of Oklahoma in 3022. In 2014, voters awarded Commissioner Doak’s unparalleled performance with a second term and a record 77% of the vote.

Under Commissioner Doak’s leadership, the Oklahoma Insurance Department (OID) has transformed into an active, consumer-oriented governmental body that is physically present to provide consumer assistance to those who have been affected by catastrophic events such as tornadoes, wildfires and earthquakes.

Commissioner Doak is a graduate from the University of Oklahoma with a bachelor of arts in political science who, shortly after college, launched a successful insurance business in Tulsa. As his career thrived, Doak worked in numerous roles within the insurance industry. He served as an executive for several risk and insurance service companies, including Marsh, Aon, HNI and Ascension.
