The Managing General Agents’ Association (MGAA) announced the election of Darren Doherty of Pioneer, Jeff Turner of Miramar and Catherine Bell of inet3 to its board at its annual general meeting.
They join existing directors Charles Earle of Arista, James Gerry of GB Underwriting and Nicholas Hales of R&Q who were all re-elected.
MGAA’s board also includes a director to represent each of the two largest full members, a director elected by the insurer members and a director elected by the supplier members. These roles will continue to be fulfilled by Sian Fisher of OIM, Peter Hubbard of UK General, Keith Stern of Lloyd’s and Bobbie Turton of RSA.
Votes were cast by full members of the MGAA and the results independently scrutinized by David Matcham of the IUA.
In addition, the MGAA board took the opportunity to acknowledge the significant support provided by Reg Brown, the association’s chairman, by presenting him with the position of honorary life member.
Peter Staddon, managing director of the MGAA commented: “While longevity provides the MGAA board with continuity and a considerable depth of knowledge, new blood is essential to regularly revitalize the leadership team and stimulate new ideas. We are therefore very much looking forward to harnessing the combined skills of our new board to drive the association forward for the benefit of its members.
“The board would also like to formally thank Reg Brown who as chairman has been at the forefront of the MGAA from its early days by awarding him the position of honorary life member.”
