TALLAHASSEE — Florida CFO Alex Sink announced today that Terry Butler has been tapped to serve as Interim Insurance Consumer Advocate.  Butler has spent his entire 32-year career as an attorney in Tallahassee, Florida, working on legislative and regulatory matters involving insurance.  He has served as the Senior Attorney in the Office of the Insurance Consumer Advocate since August 2007 and has been with the Department of Financial Services for more than 17 years.
 
“Terry’s legal experience and expertise in standing up for Florida’s insurance consumers is invaluable and he is very well-prepared to take on this new role,” said CFO Sink. “The Office of the ICA is a strong, independent voice for Floridians who rely on quality insurance products to protect their homes and property, their health and their financial well being. “
 
Butler holds a B.A. in Political Science from Miami University of Ohio and a J.D. from Florida State University.  He replaces Sean Shaw who resigned effective September 2.
