Brokerslink has appointed Tiago Mora (pictured) as its regional manager for the Middle East and Africa. He succeeds Ana Cristina Borges, who will become board director of MDS, Brokerslink’s parent company, in Portugal.

Mora is a director at MDS Re and has been with the MDS Group for 12 years. He spent a number of those years developing the group’s operations in Africa and running the Angolan business, the company said in a statement.

In the role of regional manager, Mora will focus on the development and expansion of Brokerslink’s presence across the region. He will assist the independent broker partners and affiliates in 35 markets, and support Brokerslink’s strategic insurer partners to improve their access to the Middle East and Africa.

Mora will be formally confirmed at the Brokerslink Africa and Middle East meeting, will be held in Nairobi, Kenya on June 26 to 28. He will join Christos Gavriel (regional manager, Europe), Sid Garcia (regional manager, Asia-Pacific) and Esteban Sanchez (regional manager, Latin America & the Caribbean).

“I’m delighted that Tiago has taken on the role of regional manager for this important region for Brokerslink,” José Manuel Fonseca, Brokerslink chairman. “His industry experience and understanding of the local cultures and insurance markets in Africa are very valuable to Brokerslink as we continue to expand our presence in this increasingly important region.

“I would like to take this opportunity to extend my thanks to Ana Cristina for her commitment and hard work in building the MEA region to the dynamic and growing structure we have today. We wish her every success in her new role within MDS.”
