Milliman Inc., a global consulting and actuarial firm, has added a property and casualty team to its Tampa, Fla., office in response to the growing demand for the firm’s property insurance analytics. It has tapped consulting actuary John Rollins to lead the team.

As domestic property insurers expand throughout the Atlantic and Gulf coasts, the new Tampa property and casualty presence demonstrates Milliman’s continued commitment to the region and its growing insurance market, according to a company press release.

Rollins brings 27 years of experience to the role and specializes in catastrophe-exposed property and flood insurance. As an end-to-end consultant with C-suite operational experience, Rollins has actuarial expertise in handling disaster events.

Prior to Milliman, Rollins served as chief risk officer for various insurance entities, including Cabrillo Coastal General Insurance, a managing general agent with operations in Florida and New York, and Citizens Property Insurance Corp., the largest state-run windstorm insurer in the U.S.

The Tampa property and casualty team will also work closely with Nancy Watkins, a principal and consulting actuary in Milliman’s San Francisco office who has experience in Florida.

Founded in 1947, Milliman is an independent firm with offices in major cities around the globe. It has consulting practices in healthcare, property and casualty insurance, life insurance and financial services and employee benefits.
