Governor Kevin Stitt appointed David Ostrowe as Oklahoma Secretary of Digital Transformation and Administration in January 2019. In this position, Ostrowe places a strategic emphasis on digital transformation in the delivery of services across all state agencies. He also provides oversight of state financial institutions, similarly executed by the cabinet title “Secretary of Finance” seen in previous administrations.
In addition to his cabinet role, Ostrowe serves as the President and CEO of O&M Restaurant Group. In 1999 Ostrowe launched his first business in Oklahoma City. That business grew from a one-man shop to a $65 million, multi-unit and multi-state operation with 1,000 employees. Ostrowe currently serves as the Western Regional Chair Emeritus for Young Presidents Organization and was the Oklahoma City Chair Emeritus. He has also been a board member of Allied Arts for fourteen years. Previously, Ostrowe was a member of Burger King Corporation’s Restaurant Counsel for eight years and Chair Emeritus for “The Growth Group,” a Burger King franchisee association made up of large quick service restaurant developers throughout the United States. Ostrowe is also a past professor of business, teaching two to three classes per semester at the University of Oklahoma’s Price Business School. Ostrowe holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in political science from Louisiana State University.
