“We are most pleased that Mr. Donahue has agreed to lead the IFPA’s insurance fraud prevention efforts,” said IFPA Board Chairman Charles Wilker. “In Pennsylvania, 60 percent of suspected acts of insurance fraud reported to law enforcement agencies and 75 percent of arrests made involve fraudsters who victimize auto and homeowners’ insurers and their policyholders. Tom’s 20 years of multi-line experience in investigating and supervising investigations of property and casualty insurance claims, coupled with his understanding of how law enforcement pursues insurance fraud, make him the ideal candidate to tackle Pennsylvania’s estimated $2.1 billion dollar a year insurance fraud problem.”

Donahue is a member of the Pennsylvania Auto Crime Investigators Association, and holds the professional designations of Fraud Claim Law Specialist and Certified Insurance Fraud Investigator. A 1987 graduate of Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, he resides with his wife Terri and their three children in Swarthmore, PA.
