Chief Financial Officer Jimmy Patronis Appoints Marc Dunbar to Citizens Board of Governors


TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) Jimmy Patronis announced the appointment of Marc Dunbar to the Citizens Property Insurance Corporation Board of Governors. A resident of Tallahassee, Dunbar has nearly 20 years of experience working with Florida businesses and consumers.
“Marc is a maverick who doesn’t just accept the status quo, and this fresh perspective will make a solid addition to Citizens Board of Governors,” said CFO Jimmy Patronis. “His experience in both the private and public sectors will help keep Citizens accountable and transparent. Marc adds incredible value to the board and I know he will be a champion for Florida’s insurance consumers.”
Dunbar, a partner at national law firm Jones Walker LLP, has spent time in both the public and private sectors. He is an expert in his field, and is often called upon to litigate complex legal and constitutional matters. Governor Rick Scott appointed Marc Dunbar to the Northwest Florida Water Management District, where he served from 2015 to 2018. He also serves as an adjunct professor for the Florida State University College of Law.
“It’s an honor to be chosen to help lead a corporation that protects Florida homeowners,” said Marc Dunbar. “My priority is to make decisions that best serve the policyholders and the taxpayers of our state. Consumers must be at the forefront of our decision-making process.” 
Dunbar succeeds Don Glisson and his term begins immediately, expiring on July 31, 2019.
