Industry veteran slated to lead Florida Insurance Council in 2017

Bill Martin, President of Bankers Insurance Group in St. Petersburg, has been appointed Secretary of the Florida Insurance Council Executive Committee and will become FIC Chair in 2017.

“We are pleased to announce that Bill Martin has been appointed FIC Secretary by Steven Smith of Florida Blue, our current Chair,” said FIC President Cecil Pearce. “Bill will rotate through other offices and become Chairman of the FIC Board in the summer of 2017. This is the highest office held by a FIC member. We are pleased Bill has agreed to join the Executive committee and eventually serve as FIC Chairman.”

“The Florida Insurance Council leads the push for more competition for each Florida customer. It is an honor to help Floridians who want free insurers to battle for their loyalty and money by providing better service, value and stability,” Martin said.

Before becoming Bankers President on November 1, 2011, Martin worked in product management and pricing roles, introducing innovations at Farmers Insurance, Progressive and Travelers. A Stanford graduate, Bill chaired the Advocates for Auto and Highway Safety and was Vice Chair at the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety.
