SIIA Announces Expanded Government Relations Team

SIIA Continues to Enhance Strategic Membership Capabilities

January 25, 2022 - The Self-Insurance Institute of America, Inc. (SIIA) has announced an expansion of its government relations team as the association continues to grow and enhance industry leading advocacy activities on both the federal and state levels.

Catherine Bresler, formerly Vice President and Counsel, Government Relations for Trustmark, is joining SIIA as State Policy & Regulatory Advisor. Catherine brings years of experience on state legislative and regulatory issues, including relationships with key regulatory staff across the country.

Another new addition, Anthony Murrello, is a recent graduate of American University in Washington, D.C. Anthony will join the D.C.-based team as Government Relations Coordinator, having interned previously in the U.S. House of Representatives for Rep. Mikie Sherrill (NJ). Anthony will help manage the day-to-day operations of the Self-Insurance Political Action Committee (SIPAC), as well as supporting federal and state advocacy work.

These new additions supplement the association’s longtime government relations team consisting of SIIA CEO Mike Ferguson, Ryan Work, Senior Vice President of Government Relations, and Chris Condeluci, Washington Counsel.

SIIA’s government relations growth is part of a larger coordinated effort within SIIA to proactively strengthen policy and regulatory engagement on behalf of the self-insurance/ captive insurance industry in the years to come.
