Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis announced the appointment of attorney Bo Rivard to the Citizens Property Insurance Corp. Board of Governors.
The Panama City resident has more than 20 years of experience working for the families and businesses of our state, Patronis said.
“I’m thrilled that he will be joining the Citizens board,” he added. “He has seen first-hand the financial impact of natural disasters, and I know he will work tirelessly for every policyholder.
“Bo’s experience with statewide boards and commissions, as well as his private and public sector work and depth of skill, will help this board better serve each and every Floridian.”
Rivard succeeds John McKay, a former Senate President, and the term begins immediately, expiring July 31, 2020.
Rivard, a partner at Harrison, Rivard, Duncan, & Buzzett, recently served as chairman of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. There, he was a “staunch proponent of conservation—the well-being of wildlife and marine resources, and the benefit of people,” Patronis said.
“I’m honored to be part of Citizens and to help give a voice for Florida homeowners,” Rivard said in a statement. “My top priority is to ensure Floridians are at the forefront of every decision made, and I look forward to advocating every day for the families who call our state home.”
