In his new role, White will oversee all four subsidiaries that make up TDC Group: The Doctors Company, Healthcare Risk Advisors, TDC Specialty Underwriters, and Medical Advantage.

“This promotion recognizes Mr. White’s extraordinary work as chief operating officer,” said Richard E.

White has more than 50 years of insurance industry experience. He served as president of insurance operations for the FPIC Insurance Group before it became part of The Doctors Company. White is chairman of the board of the Florida Justice Reform Institute, a member of the board of governors of the Florida Medical Malpractice Joint Underwriting Association, a member of the board of the Florida Insurance Council, and a member of the board of Professionals Resource Network. He served on the board of directors of the Medical Professional Liability Association and serves on three of its committees.

The strengths she has shown in leading IT – her ability to manage effectively between enterprise and business unit perspectives and the continuous improvement of projects she has overseen – make her the right leader for MPL.”
