A story of service: Thank you, Dan Ross!

Tuesday, December 28, 2021

For close to 14 years, Dan Ross served the State of Oklahoma within the Office of Management and Enterprise Services. For the past seven years, he has been the administrator of Capital Assets Management, a role in which he diligently watched over the Capitol Complex, managed fleet services, oversaw Central Printing, transformed Federal and State Surplus and changed many lives along the way.

“Day or night, you could pick up the phone and call Dan Ross,” said Steven Harpe, Oklahoma’s chief operating officer and OMES executive director. “Whatever needed to be done, he jumped into action. He is dependable, hard-working and will be deeply missed.”

“Over the years, I have watched Dan grow professionally and adapt to the needs of Oklahomans,” said OMES Deputy Director Dana Webb. “It has been a pleasure to serve alongside him. We will be cheering him on in his new role.”

That new role is vice president of a national consulting firm that specializes in public sector work.

“It’s hard to describe the ups, downs and all arounds I have had here in the last 14 years,” Ross said. “I can simply say that I will look back with a sense of wonder at how lucky I am to have done the things I did and how fortunate I’ve been to work with such talented professionals.”

We wish Ross well and, as he departs, let’s reflect on his tremendous work at the agency!

OMES was recently presented an American Society of Landscape Architects Merit Award in recognition of outstanding professional achievement from CLS & Associates for the Oklahoma City Bombing Memorial Grove located on the Capitol Campus. The project was dedicated on the 25th anniversary of the bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building.
