Jeff Atwater Names Thomas Kirwin as Deputy CFO
State CFO Jeff Atwater named Thomas Kirwin as deputy CFO on Thursday, overseeing law enforcement efforts in the Department of Financial Services -- and to handle the CFO’s attempts to crack down on insurance fraud.
Atwater named Kirwin, who served as an assistant U.S. attorney, to lead the Bureau of Fire and Arson Investigations, the Division of Insurance Fraud and the Office of Fiscal Integrity.
“Tom’s long service as a prosecutor in military, state and federal courts makes him uniquely qualified to marshal a team of dedicated law enforcement officers and more aggressively prepare and present trial-ready cases for prosecution,” said Atwater. “I am honored that he agreed to join in the fight against fraud that is costing Florida families millions of dollars each year.”
