When is it correct to address a doctor as Dr?

I work for a medium to large financial services company. There is a treasury expert here who insists on being introduced and referred to as Dr. TreasuryExpert. His doctorate is in chemistry. Is his insistence odd?
I don't even know the guy but hearing his assistant introduce him grandly as Dr. TreasuryExpert elicits eye-rolls from myself and others.
I know I am being petty, but am I wrong?
