MGAA appoints new Head of Communications and Digital Strategy


The Managing General Agents’ Association (MGAA) has today announced the appointment of Helen Ferris as Head of Communications and Digital Strategy to drive forward its digital offering and enhance communications with the Association’s 248 members. 

Helen was previously Head of Communications and Marketing at JLT Re and has had an extensive career in marketing having held senior roles with NIIT Insurance Technologies and Moore Stephens Consulting.

Mike Keating, who took over as managing director of the MGAA in September has prioritised improving engagement with the Association’s existing membership base and bolstering its regional representation. He said the new role will be an integral part of achieving both of these aims as the Association continues to grow.

Keating commented: “I’m really pleased to welcome Helen to the Association.  With a strong background in digital marketing and communications, her skillset and knowledge is very attractive to the Association as we look for new ways to engage with our existing and future members and develop a stronger digital footprint to reflect the needs of MGAs today.”
