Guy L. Berry was appointed to the Oklahoma Turnpike Authority by Governor Mary Fallin on Wednesday, according to the governor’s press release.
A Sapulpa resident, 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 previously worked as a national bank examiner for the U.S. Treasury Department.
He also served on the Oklahoma Transportation Commission and the board of directors.
