about us

history:

McMullan Conway Communications (MCC) was formed in 1997 by Terry McMullan and Naomi Conway to provide public relations and marketing services to the general insurance industry.

Shortly after incorporation we were invited to manage the bimonthly magazine of the National Insurance Brokers Association (NIBA), which we developed to become Insurance & Risk Professional. Over the next 11 years we also played an active role in the development of NIBA’s other publications, public relations and marketing activities.

In 2001 Telstra contracted MCC to supply a free weekly online news service, Sunrise Exchange News, to serve the general insurance industry. Ownership of the service was passed on to MCC in 2008 and the site was redesigned and renamed insuranceNEWS.com.au.

Today insuranceNEWS.com.au is the most wide-reaching and influential news source in the general insurance industry, and our life insurance coverage is also attracting a growing audience from that industry. The site’s readership has grown from some 3500 subscribers in 2008 to more than 22,000 today, with up to 41,000 unique visitors each month.

Its associated print publication, insuranceNEWS (the magazine) is produced bimonthly. It has a subscriber base of around 8900, making it the largest-circulation magazine of its type in the region.

Throughout the past 15 years MCC has also provided public relations, marketing, advertising, publishing and strategic advice to a wide range of clients.

We have devised and managed national advertising campaigns, developed new identities and brands for companies and assisted individuals and their companies to reach their full potential.

We’re still growing and building innovative solutions and products for the thousands of people working in the general insurance industry who rely on us to provide timely and reliable information.

what we believe in:

People who understand their professional environment are better equipped to deal with the day-to-day issues of their work.

We should always employ the best business journalists available to produce the reliable, researched information people have come to expect from the Insurance News publications.

When we get something wrong we say so and correct the record. That’s the only way our readers can be sure we are reliable.

Advertising is our sole source of publishing revenue. By making our publications free we provide our advertisers with the largest possible target audience.
