George Feijoo joined Floridian Partners in May of 2016 as a Governmental Affairs Consultant.
With over a decade of experience in the insurance industry, George is an insurance expert whose practice focuses on assisting Floridian’s financial services clients in the development and implementation of strategies that meet their business, marketing, legislative, and regulatory priorities. He has deep technical expertise within multiple personal and commercial lines of insurance including auto, property, liability, life, health, med-mal and workers compensation.
While at Floridian, he has helped further the regulatory interests of our national and domestic clients in several states. Projects worked on have included the drafting of policy and manual language, product approval such as form and rate filings, market research, relief of market conduct investigations, periodic financial filings, applications, mergers & acquisitions, and tracking/analysis/drafting of agency rules.
On the legislative front, George has been involved in the passage of multiple key reforms to help reduce litigation and stem the rise of Florida insurance rates for individuals and businesses alike. This includes advocating for attorney fee reform in property insurance, Covid liability protections for businesses, and lobbying against onerous private rights of action for data privacy violations. In the auto, tax and disruptive technology space, he recently championed Florida’s first insurance & regulatory framework for Peer-to-Peer Car Sharing that supports innovation and expands transportation options for the public.
Taking his practice further, George has brought additional value to his clients at the C-Suite level through the cross section of government affairs with business & marketing strategy. In particular, he has consulted on how a cross-functional strategy can protect and further their branding, market differentiation and competitive advantages.
Before joining Floridian, George spent several years at the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation where he held various positions within both the Property & Casualty Product Review and Life & Health Financial Oversight units. Through his work there, he gained extensive knowledge and experience in the laws and regulations surrounding insurer products, operations, and solvency. In addition, with a focus on how InsurTech is impacting traditional liability theory and the insurer value chain, he has spoken at industry conferences and been a guest lecturer within Florida State University’s Department of Risk Management & Insurance.
Born in New York and raised in Miami, George moved to Tallahassee to study at Florida State University where he earned his bachelor’s degree in Actuarial Science. While working at the Office of Insurance Regulation, George received his M.B.A. from Florida State University as well as the CPCU designation from the American Institute of Chartered Property Casualty Underwriters. He is also a Florida licensed agent in P&C General Lines (2-20) and Life & Health & Variable Annuities (2-15).
Outside of work, George can usually be found playing basketball, playing guitar at church, or trying his best not to publicly embarrass his wife Samantha and children Olivia and Luka.
