Doug Ommen was appointed by Governor Terry Branstad as Insurance Commissioner in January 2017, after serving as Interim Commissioner since December 2016. Ommen has a strong and varied public service background.

Ommen has served as Deputy Insurance Commissioner since joining the Iowa Insurance Division in August 2013. Ommen also served in the Missouri Department of Insurance (DOI) from 2005–2008, and as Missouri’s Insurance Director was instrumental for several key regulatory reforms.
Ommen obtained his law degree in 1985 from the Saint Louis University School of Law, and is licensed to practice law in both Iowa and Missouri. Ommen and his wife, Sharon, have two married children and two grandchildren.
