Risky Business: Climate Change and the Shifting Insurance Environment in Oregon and the Pacific Northwest
Friday, October 6, 2023
Spinning Room, Willamette Heritage Center
Doors open at 11:30
Program: 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Oregon Insurance Commissioner & Director
Oregon Department of Consumer and Business Services
(The first in a series of three programs on climate change mitigation, followed by programs on building Oregon’s infrastructure for electrifying transportation, and how Inflation Reduction Act money will affect climate change mitigation efforts in Oregon.)
Excessive heat, ongoing drought, destructive wildfires, coastal erosion, inundating floods, and dangerous wind events: climate change is shifting the insurance environment in many states, including Oregon. Oregon’s insurance commissioner, Andrew Stolfi, will discuss the challenges of climate change to the insurance industry and to home and property owners.
Andrew R. Stolfi was appointed Department of Consumer and Business Services director in April 2020. He is also the state’s insurance commissioner. He began with the department in February 2018 as Division of Financial Services administrator and insurance commissioner.
Previously, Andrew spent six years in Switzerland at the International Association of Insurance Supervisors in a variety of roles, including chief operating officer and chief counsel. He held various senior management roles at the Illinois Department of Insurance, including acting director, chief of staff, and special counsel for policy and legislative affairs.
His legal background includes serving as attorney and policy analyst in the Office of the Governor of the State of Illinois; judicial law clerk for the Honorable Thomas E. Hoffman in the Illinois Appellate Court, First District; and a special assistant corporation counsel for the City of Chicago Law Department.
He has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Vermont and a law degree with honors from Chicago-Kent College of Law.
