The Arbella Insurance Group has announced the appointment of Robin Jones (pictured above) as executive director of its charitable arm, the Arbella Insurance Foundation.

Jones’ appointment is effective March 1. She succeeds current foundation president Beverly Tangvik, who will retire on March 31.

Jones has 18 years of consulting experience and has led an independent consulting practice providing advisory and strategy services to a mix of nonprofit organizations and funders. She has also served as a consultant, staff member and director on many nonprofit boards. Jones’ background in journalism has contributed to her expertise in communications and fundraising strategies.

Jones has also served as the director of marketing, communications and public affairs for the Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children and as a writer and patient communications director for the Women’s Health Study.

“I am thrilled to welcome Robin to Arbella and have her continue to build on the excellent work we have done in our communities over the last 18 years,” said John Donohue, president and CEO of Arbella Insurance Group. “I also want to thank Beverly Tangvik for her tireless commitment, leadership and contributions that will leave a lasting legacy on our organization.

“During her tenure as president of the foundation, she has overseen millions of dollars in charitable donations to several hundred different charitable organizations annually, and her impact on the culture of the foundation cannot be understated. I also look forward to partnering with Robin Jones in her new role as executive director, and I know that her passion for giving back will be an asset to our foundation.”

“As I step into this role, I would like to thank John and the board for their confidence in me,” Jones said. “I am both honored and excited to have the opportunity to work with such a talented leadership team, employees and agents. I am honored to be able to build on the momentum started by Beverly over the last 18 years. As we look ahead, the foundation’s mission remains the same: to support nonprofit organizations and causes that provide services to individuals in need. Together, we will continue to grow and strengthen our local communities.”

Jones is the latest addition to the Arbella Insurance Group team. In September, the company appointed Matt Postulka as chief information officer.
