Burgess previously served in that role from 2004 to 2007 and from 1990 to 1997. Most recently, he was the staff director for the Florida Senate Banking and Insurance Committee.

Burgess follows Robin Westcott who resigned as insurance consumer advocate in September to become the vice president of the American Association of Insurance Services.

“Steve’s career experience and his understanding of the insurance industry will help further our efforts to hold insurance companies accountable and ensure that Floridians are being treated fairly,” said CFO Atwater. “He is a proven advocate for Florida consumers and I am confident he will represent the best interests of Florida families.”
