Cleve Pierce Joins OWRB As Chief Of Administration

Cleve Pierce has been hired as Chief of Administration at the Oklahoma Water Resources Board (OWRB). At the OWRB, Pierce will be responsible for coordinating the agency's budget, as well as leading the agency's Administrative Division which includes managing OWRB's staff involved with information technology projects, geographic information systems, human resources and public information. Cleve replaces the OWRB's former Chief of Administration, Amanda Storck, who left the agency for the role of Vice President of Finance and Human Resources at the YMCA of Greater Oklahoma City.

Pierce comes to the OWRB after holding administrative and operations positions at multiple state agencies including the Corporation Commission (OCC), Department of Tourism, and Department of Corrections. Most recently at OCC, Pierce served as Director of Finance and on multiple occasions as the Interim Director of Administration. Prior to his public service career with the State of Oklahoma, Pierce worked for private businesses in both the gasoline retail and banking industries.

"We are excited for Cleve to join the OWRB family, and his experience with budgeting, public affairs, strategic planning, and administrative management will be a great help to our agency's mission," said OWRB Executive Director J.D. Strong. "I would also like to thank Amanda Storck for her hard work and dedication to the OWRB, and I know she'll be a great asset in her new role with the YMCA."

Originally from Maud, Okla., Pierce earned an MBA from Oklahoma City University in 1989 and a BS in Finance from Oklahoma State University in 1980. Pierce enjoys landscaping and gardening. He is most proud of his family and the relationships he has developed while working in state government.
