Terry McMullan

Managing Director and Publisher

Terry’s experience has equipped him to take leading roles in industry PR, crisis consulting, communications management, marketing and journalism.

He worked for major newspapers and agencies both in Australia and abroad before moving to corporate communications at BHP, where he held senior positions in public affairs and government relations. Joining the Insurance Council of Australia, he instigated Australia-wide programs for 10,000 insurance-company staff to increase their awareness of consumer needs, while other initiatives raised the industry's profile with politicians and the public.

After setting up McMullan Conway with Naomi Conway in 1996, he was a communications and marketing consultant for a number of companies and organisations, including the National Insurance Brokers Association. Achievements include the development of Insurance & Risk Professional magazine and the online Sunrise Exchange News for Telstra. In 2009 McMullan Conway set up the independent free online weekly insuranceNEWS.com.au, and later that year Insurance News (the magazine). Each is the dominant publication in their niche, and his role as Publisher now takes up most of Terry’s time.

An entertaining public speaker and interviewer, Terry maintains close contact with insurance professionals at all levels in Australia and overseas.
