The MGAA has appointed a new board director, following a vote and confirmation

The Managing General Agents’ Association (MGAA) has today announced the appointment of Marco Del Carlo as a new board director.

Del Carlo, who is the managing director of Tempo Underwriting, was voted in and confirmed at the MGAA’s general meeting at Lloyd’s this morning.

He joins Charles Manchester of Manchester Underwriting, Catherine Bell of inet3, Bill O’Malley of Arch Insurance, Keith Stern of Lloyd’s, Charles Earle of Advent Solutions and Peter Staddon, the Association’s managing director, on the board.

Jeff Turner of Miramar Underwriting and Mark Birrell of Castel Underwriting Agencies have also been re-elected for a further four years, while Karen Beales of UK General and Jonathan Skinner of Pen Underwriting also remain on the board as representatives from the two largest MGA members.

Manchester, chair of the MGAA, said: “Marco brings additional depth and experience to our board that reflects the breadth of expertise and entrepreneurialism that the MGA sector is recognised for.

“We are all committed to delivering an ambitious strategy. We are building the role and profile of the Association, driving increased engagement with the broker market, working with insurers to create greater efficiency, promoting and supporting best practice in training and development of our talent, expanding our focus and support to members in the regions and helping MGAs to negotiate the challenges that Brexit and the regulatory environment creates.”

Tempo Underwriting is an underwriter-led, multi-line MGA, which focusses on specialty lines.
