Oklahoma Farm Bureau Names Doye as Interim Executive Director

The Oklahoma Farm Bureau named farmer and rancher Thad Doye as its interim executive director on Monday. It comes after it was learned executive director Monia Wilke and senior vice president John Collison were no longer with the organization.

Doye is from Lawton. He has been a part of the Comanche County Young Farmers and Ranchers, serving as chairman. He started working with Oklahoma Farm Bureau in 1998 as a field service representative.

Doye is currently the crop insurance specialist for the Bureau and works with the Oklahoma Food Bank and Farming & Ranching Foundation through the Pork for Packs and Beef for Backpacks programs. He’ll continue those duties while serve as interim executive director.

“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.”
