“We are pleased to have John and Wayne join the Board of Directors for Energi,” said Brian McCarthy, CEO of Energi. “As former Insurance Commissioners, both bring a wealth of experience and expertise in the insurance industry and will be tremendous assets to the Company.”

John Doak was elected as the 12th Insurance Commissioner of Oklahoma and served from 2011 to 2019. As a graduate of University of Oklahoma in 1988 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science, John later began working at the executive level in the insurance industry. John previously served in corporate positions at Marsh, Aon Risk Services, HNI Risk Services, and Ascension Insurance, where he was Senior Vice President of Acquisitions. As Insurance Commissioner, his visionary efforts included hosting the National Tornado Summit, an annual disaster preparedness conference for insurance professionals, emergency managers and meteorologists. John has been involved in the initial formation of the NAIC Task Force on Innovation and has been a regulator interested in assisting startup companies.  John currently is the Executive Vice President of Regulatory Affairs, Innovation and Business Development at Insurance Care Direct.

Wayne Goodwin is the former North Carolina Insurance Commissioner and insurance regulator, a four-term state legislator, and small business owner. Wayne earned his undergraduate and law degrees from UNC-Chapel Hill. Prior to his service in the North Carolina legislature, he successfully opened two law firms and served as President of his county bar association. In his four consecutive terms in the General Assembly, he sponsored legislation that prompted greater incentives for economic development, education, healthcare and public safety. During his eight years as Insurance Commissioner and State Fire Marshal, he was a strong proponent of state-based insurance regulation, protecting consumer right and fighting fraud. After two terms, he returned to the private sector creating his own insurance regulatory consulting firm and has joined various boards of directors for private businesses. Wayne currently serves as Chairman of the North Carolina Democratic Party.

“Both John and Wayne have an incredible understanding of the insurance industry as former Insurance Commissioners,” said James Townsend, Chairman of the Energi, Inc.
