Hall lives in Elk City and is the owner of 4GH Ranch, a land and cattle operation, Joe D. Hall General Contractors, a construction firm, and is the chairman of InterBank.
Hall was first appointed in 2003 by Governor Brad Henry.

“Joe has proven himself to be an effective and dedicated regent,” Fallin said of Hall. “No one is more passionate about the quality of our universities and colleges than he is. I know he will continue to do a great job.”
