Logan McFaddin is leaving her position as the director of legislative affairs at the Florida Department of Financial Services to join the Property Casualty Insurers Associations of America (PCI). Her final day at DFS was Wednesday, Nov. 26.

Starting Dec. 1, McFaddin’s new role will be regional manager of government relations at PCI, overseeing states in the Southeast.

“I’m very pleased with our new hire, Logan has extensive industry knowledge and understands the vital role insurance plays within the economy,” said Paul Blume, PCI’s senior vice president, state government relations. “She understands the key issues that are important to our members, helping PCI lead during these disruptive and challenging times.”

In an email to staff, Robert “Budd” Kneip, chief of staff to CFO Jeff Atwater, praised McFaddin for her dedicated service. She had been with Atwater’s office since 2011.

“For more than three years,” Kneip said, “Logan has championed our priorities and helped to make the department more efficient, more transparent and better able to serve the people of Florida.”

Prior to her time at DFS, McFaddin served as Legislative Affairs Director for the Florida Agency for Persons with Disabilities.

PCI is one of the property-casualty industry’s largest trade association, representing more than 1,000 member companies, who write over $210 billion in annual premiums. Members support 47 percent of the U.S. auto insurance market and more than a third of the homeowners, commercial property, and private workers compensation market.

Elizabeth Boyd will become new DFS legislative affairs director, after serving as deputy legislative affairs director since 2011.

“Elizabeth’s dynamic presence has served to move our mission forward,” Kneip said. “Elizabeth’s promotion solidifies our commitment to retaining the best and brightest talent available.”
