Rollins resigns from Citizens board to explore returning to the company

John RollinsJohn Rollins, an insurance analytics guru who was appointed to Citizens Board of directors by Gov. Rick Scott two years ago, submitted his resignation from the board today in a letter to the governor.

Rollins, 43, told the Herald/Times that he resigned to avoid any ethical breaches as he considers returning to Citizens as part of the company's reorganization. Rollins, president of Rollins Analytics Inc. in High Springs, served as chairman of the board's Actuarial and Underwriting Subcommittee. He previously served as director of corporate analytics at Citizens Property Insurance Corporation from 2006 to 2007.

"I've accomplished a lot and the board has accomplished a lot,'' Rollins said in an interview. "There is a reorganization of the company and it's possible I would have a place in that reorganization. It's also possible there may be opportunities in the private insurance market."

Rollins said he has not been offered anything at Citizens yet and expects the reorganization to be discussed at the Sept. 19 and 20 board meeting.

Rollins has formerly been vice president of AIR Worldwide Corporation from 2007 to 2009, consulting actuary at Watson Wyatt Worldwide from 2004 to 2006 and chief actuary and manager, strategic planning at Florida Farm Bureau Insurance from 1999 to 2004 and president of Rollins Research from 1995 to 1996. Rollins' term on the board expired July 31, 2014.
