Buckner Promoted to Senior VP of Operations for Oklahoma Farm Bureau

Thu, 21 May 2015 14:40:35 CDT

Buckner Promoted to Senior VP of Operations for Oklahoma Farm Bureau Gary Buckner has been promoted to Senior Vice President of Operations for Oklahoma Farm Bureau and Affiliated Companies.

Buckner, former Vice President of Claims for OKFB Mutual Insurance Company, takes over an expanded and redefined position following the untimely passing of Robert Peeler, Vice President of FB Building Corp. Buckner's new responsibilities include managing the building's infrastructure, company vehicle fleet and the Information Systems department.

His new duties basically cover everything that has a "moving part," from the heating and air conditioning system, to company cars, to the companies' vast computer infrastructure.

"I am excited by the challenges and opportunities to continue to be an asset for Oklahoma Farm Bureau," Buckner said.

Comparing his previous work in claims with his new position, Buckner said there are similarities.

"Both roles are demanding, fast-paced with new, daily challenges and are service-oriented."

Buckner said his background helped prepare him to take on new challenges.

"I was taught to work hard and the rest will fall into place," Buckner said. When asked about his favorite part of the position, Buckner said, "learning more about Oklahoma Farm Bureau."

Buckner joined Farm Bureau in 1996 as an all-lines claims adjuster for the McAlester district claims office. He was promoted to manager of the Shawnee district claims office in 2002, and in 2005 he was named associate claims manager-property. In 2010, he was promoted to vice president of claims.

Buckner is a native of Talihina and graduated from Northeastern State University in Tahlequah. In his spare time he enjoys spending time with his wife, Ashley, and two sons, Logan, 16, and Lawson, 13. Favorite family activities include camping and riding dirt bikes.
