FAPIA mourns death of President Wolfman

By Chad Hemenway



Harvey Wolfman, president of the Florida Association of Public Adjusters (FAPIA), died Aug. 2 following a heart attack.

President-Elect George W. Keys will assume the FAPIA presidency, says the association in a statement.

“Harvey was truly a champion for FAPIA and the public adjusting industry, and his leadership and input will be greatly missed,” says Keys. “We will continue his good work by moving forward with the advocacy and policy goals he helped set for the year ahead.”

Wolfman, president of the BCH Group in Sunrise, Fla., was recently interview by PC360 following a ruling by the state Supreme Court that a 2008 state statute was unconstitutional.

The statute banned public adjusters from soliciting homeowners for 48 hours after an event like a hurricane, sinkhole or tornado. Wolfman said the association was never in favor of the legislation. FAPIA has worked to ensure only honest adjusters work in the state, he continued.

Wolfman became president of FAPIA at the association’s May conference in Orlando.

Key is the principal of Keys Claims Consultants in Naples, Fla. He is a founding member and past president of FAPIA, which has about 400 members. Key has also been a member of the board of directors for the National Association of Public Adjusters.
