Palm Beach Post – Charles Elmore
Brace for a change of direction at one of Florida’s two biggest property insurers.

That’s where Citizens expects to gain customers — particularly in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties.
“When we forecast 2017, we’re actually forecasting a slight increase in policy count,” Citizens CEO Barry Gilway told company officials ahead of Wednesday’s board meeting.
