TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, Florida Insurance Commissioner David Altmaier announced the appointment of Alexis Bakofsky as the Chief of Staff for the Florida Office of Insurance Regulation (OIR).

“Since joining OIR in 2019, Alexis has been invaluable as we’ve navigated a host of insurance matters that are critical to Floridians around our state. Alexis has a strong commitment to the policyholders we serve and I look forward to having her serve in this role as we implement strategies to further promote a stable and competitive insurance market for consumers,” said Commissioner Altmaier.

Bakofsky’s appointment is a continuation of her service to the state, having recently served as OIR Deputy Chief of Staff and Communications Director, where she was responsible for providing management oversight of strategic priorities and leading internal and external messaging related to a variety of insurance issues central to Floridians.
