Glen Mulready became the 13th Oklahoma insurance commissioner after receiving 62% of the vote. He was sworn into office on Jan. 14, 2019.
Mulready is a recognized leader and champion in the insurance industry. Starting as a broker in 1984, he rose to serve at the executive level of the two largest health insurance companies in Oklahoma. In 2007, he joined Benefit Plan Strategies, a company helping businesses provide employee benefits and health insurance to their employees.
Mulready also served as president of both the Tulsa and Oklahoma State Health Underwriters Associations and has been named State Health Underwriter of the Year.
In 2010, Mulready successfully ran for state representative and quickly became the point person for the House of Representatives on insurance issues and was appointed chairman of the Insurance Committee after the 2014 elections. In this role, Mulready passed legislation that resulted in more insurance companies offering services in the state, and he reformed the state employee insurance program to save Oklahoma millions of dollars a year while also saving thousands of dollars for those families.
Mulready also authored and passed a plan that – when fully implemented – could save taxpayers $1 billion in the state’s Medicaid program over 10 years. Because of these successes, Mulready was tapped as majority floor leader in 2017.
Mulready has been married to his wife, Sally, for 30 years. They are the proud parents of three sons, Sam, Jake and Will. In 2008, Glen and Sally were the recipients of Leadership Tulsa’s Paragon Award for their work with Big Brothers Big Sisters.
Mulready is active in his community, having served on numerous boards and committees, including Big Brothers Big Sisters, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, March of Dimes, Shepherds Fold Ranch Christian summer camp, Crime Commission and Tulsa Tough.
