Mon, 31 Jul 2017 12:11:17 CDT

Thad Doye Named Interim Executive Director for Oklahoma Farm Bureau The Oklahoma Farm Bureau has named life-long farmer and rancher Thad Doye interim executive director.


A veteran of Farm Bureau, Doye has been associated in some aspect of the company most of his life. His involvement began when he served as Comanche County Young Farmers and Ranchers (YF&R) chairman. He later became vice president of the state YF &R Committee. He received the State YF&R Outstanding Young Farm Family Award in 1995.


The Lawton native’s career with Oklahoma Farm Bureau began as a field service representative in June 1998. He completed a fellowship with the Oklahoma Agricultural Leadership Program (OALP), then became vice president of field services.


Doye will continue to serve as the crop insurance specialist for Oklahoma Farm Bureau. He also works with the Oklahoma Food Bank and Farming & Ranching Foundation through the Pork for Packs and Beef for Backpacks Program. The Lawton native holds a degree in agriculture business from Cameron University.


“Being chosen for this position is a great honor,” Doye said. “I’m looking forward to working closely with the many people in the Oklahoma Farm Bureau family.”
Oklahoma Farm Bureau President Tom Buchanan noted Doye’s experience with Farm Bureau.


“Thad has served our organization well through various positions," Buchanan said. “Through his many years of service, he has an intimate understanding of our 75-year-old organization. He is well suited to meet our mission of improving the lives of rural Oklahomans.”


Earlier, Buchanan had a statement attributed to him regarding the former Executive Director Monica Wilke and Senior Vice President of Strategic Operations and Development John Collison are no longer associated with the organization. Buchanan's statement reads as follows:


“Executive Director Monica Wilke and Senior Vice President of Strategic Operations and Development John Collison are no longer employed by our organization. Because this is a personnel matter, we are not at liberty to comment further. The board would like to thank Monica and John for their service. We look forward to the future and remain dedicated to improving the lives of rural Oklahomans.”
