APA Executive Director
APA Executive Director Doug Quinn is a Marine Corps veteran who was living a comfortable life as an investment advisor until he lost his home in superstorm Sandy. Although he had the maximum legal amount of flood coverage, Doug’s Insurance Company only offered him 37 cents on the dollar. In the process of fighting this injustice, Doug found out that many of his friends & neighbors were also being shortchanged & his eyes were opened to just how unfairly the American insurance consumer is treated on a day-to-day basis.
Doug has fought FEMA, the insurance industry, & the bureaucracy of a disaster recovery gone wrong for 6 grueling years. Do to his activism on behalf of consumers, Doug was asked to take the helm as the Executive Director of the American Policyholder Association, a nonprofit Organization whose mission is to protect American insurance consumers from Fraud perpetrated by insurance companies as well as the engineering and adjusting firms they hire. Still displaced from hurricane Sandy, Doug lives in a rental apartment in Toms River, NJ while he patiently awaits the rebuilding of his home.
Doug volunteers his time collecting & delivering donated supplies to disaster zones across America, rescuing animals, distributing hot food & winter clothing to the homeless, & mentoring children in his community thru coaching Lacrosse. Doug values the opportunity to build the American Policyholder Association into a powerful force for change in the industry that will effectively stand up for those who cannot defend themselves.
