Insurance broker and consultant NFP has announced the appointments of Kate Henry and Mike Walsh as co-presidents of the company’s Northeast region. Henry and Walsh succeed Bill Austin, who is transitioning to a managing director role focused on scaling the company’s business in South Florida.
“NFP is always working to evolve in ways that align with our values and the needs of our employees, clients and communities,” said Doug Hammond, chairman and CEO of NFP. “New challenges bring out the best in our leaders, and I’m looking forward to great results in our Northeast region from Kate and Mike. The foundation NFP has built and refined in our Northeast region and Kate and Mike’s expertise and collaborative approach put us in a great position to enhance value for clients and earn new business.”
The Northeast is NFP’s largest region, with more than 850 employees and more than $350 million in revenue.
Henry and Walsh will remain active in the company’s M&A recruiting activities, helping the company attract new firms and integrate them into the region.
Henry (pictured above) joined NFP in 2012 as the corporate benefits leader in the Northeast, leading benefits, retirement and HR consulting practices before becoming the regional managing director for benefits in 2017.
“This is a great opportunity that reflects NFP’s focus on recognizing performance and challenging leaders to deliver exceptional results in new roles,” Henry said. “Mike and I will work together with our amazing teams to deliver the integrated solutions that businesses and individuals need to achieve their objectives. There are no limits to where we can take the region.”
