Fallin Appoints Berry to Turnpike Authority

Governor Fallin Wednesday announced she has appointed Guy L. Berry to the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority.

Berry succeeds Albert “Kell” Kelly, who resigned. Berry will serve on the board pending Senate confirmation next legislative session.

“Guy Berry realizes that maintaining and repairing our turnpikes and transportation infrastructure is important to our citizens and important to Oklahoma’s economy,” said Fallin. “He understands that as Oklahoma’s population grows, it will require a greater commitment to modernize and improve our turnpike system. I have confidence he will ensure the Turnpike Authority is competently and efficiently run.”

Berry has worked the past 36 years at American Heritage Bank in Sapulpa, as president and vice chairman of the board. Before that, he was president and owner of a bank auditing company in Tulsa. He previously worked as a national bank examiner for the U.S. Treasury Department.

“I appreciate Governor Fallin’s trust in me,” Berry said. “I will work to make sure our roads in our turnpike system are safe and well-maintained for our motorists.”

Berry previously served on the Oklahoma Transportation Commission and on the board of directors of both the Oklahoma Bankers Association and the State Chamber of Oklahoma.

He is married to Caroline Berry, and has two children, Elizabeth and Henry.
