It is with great sadness that we advise all of our friends in our close community that our beloved Mechlin Moore passed away last night in his sleep, following a lengthy battle with cancer.  He was 87.

Mechlin was President of MDM Communications consulting services in marketing, advertising, public affairs, media relations and editorial.  He served as our NRRA Director of Communications for many years.  Mechlin also was a Marketing Communications Executive at Ultimate Risk Solutions, LLC, an international financial risk software firm, and was a Feature Writer at the Risk Retention Reporter.  Mechlin formed his firm after serving 12 years as President of the Insurance Information Institute.  Earlier he was Senior Vice President of Public Affairs at United Airlines.  Moore began his career as a staff reporter on The Washington Post.  He was a graduate of Harvard University.

Our most sincere prayers and thoughts go out to his wife, Valery, the "love of his life," and to his family members.  He will be fondly remembered.  Service will be Friday, June 23, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. at St George's Church, 30 E 7th St, New York, NY 10003
