DOC Names New Communications Director

OKLAHOMA CITY -- The Oklahoma Department of Corrections has appointed Matt Elliott as Communications Director, the department announced Monday.

Elliott was appointed to the position after the resignation of Mark Myers. Elliott will serve as DOC's chief spokesperson, and manage the department's day-to-day internal and external communications. He joined DOC Sept. 6 as its public information manager.

"I'm looking forward to working with our leadership, Director Joe. M Allbaugh, and staff as we continue to tell DOC's story, while also meeting the needs of our state's press corps," Elliott said.

Elliott came to DOC from Family & Children's Services, a Tulsa outpatient behavioral health provider and nonprofit where he was a grant writer and social/traditional media producer. He has also worked as a communications specialist and lecturer at Oklahoma State University. Elliott began his career as a reporter for the Tulsa World and Muskogee Phoenix daily newspapers.

He holds a master's degree in business administration from Oklahoma State University, and a bachelor's degree in sociology from the University of Tulsa.
