The National Association of Mutual Insurance Companieshas named a new group of Washington, D.C. insurance professionals to lead its federal affairs lobbying efforts in the nation’s capital.

Last December, NAMIC Federal Affairs Senior Vice President David A. Winston was named to lead the department.

Prior to joining NAIFA, Winston served on the staff of the U.S. Senate Committee on the Judiciary.

Marliss A. Browder, who joined the NAMIC Washington, D.C., staff last summer, is one of the department’s two federal affairs directors. She is a former federal legislative manager for Kemper Insurance Cos. Browder also served on the majority staff of the House Banking Committee and was staff assistant to Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.

Alane R. Allman-Dent joined in March as federal affairs director. She has also held positions in the federal government, notably as legislative counsel to Rep. Earl Pomeroy, D-N.D., a member of the U.S. House of Representatives Ways and Means Committee and former North Dakota Insurance Commissioner.

Prior to joining the Congressman’s office, she was a Presidential Management Intern with the Social Security Administration (SSA) and concluded her career there as a Legislative Representative.
