With over a decade of experience in the financial services industry, George is a Florida insurance lobbyist and consultant whose practice focuses on assisting his 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 product approval such as form and rate filings, relief of market conduct investigations, financial solvency filings, applications, mergers & acquisitions, and agency rulemaking.
On the legislative front, George has been involved in the passage of multiple key reforms to help reduce litigation and incentivize capital investment in the Florida business economy. This includes advocating for attorney fee reform, sensible liability protections for businesses, and lobbying against new onerous private rights of action. In the auto, tax and disruptive technology space, he championed Florida’s first insurance & regulatory framework for Peer-to-Peer Car Sharing that supports innovation and expands transportation options for the public. Other wins involve reducing regulatory burdens to meet modern realities, such as passage of remote work for mortgage loan officers.
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, 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 doting his wife Samantha and children Olivia and Luka.
