Stokes Media to produce content for FAnews
FAnews has contracted with Gareth Stokes of Stokes Media to represent the respected insurance publication at select industry events, and produce content for the print magazine and FAnews.co.za, starting 1 May 2020.
Gareth is a content and communication specialist with extensive knowledge of the South African financial services sector, gained as contributing online editor at FAnews.co.za from 2007-2012, and during a 5-year stint as communications manager at the Financial Intermediaries Association of Southern Africa (FIA). He retains his role as MD of Stokes Media, where he provides content solutions, on retainer, to an exclusive group of financial services clients.
“FAnews is excited to welcome Gareth back to the team,” says Rianet Whitehead, Co-owner of FAnews and creator of The Insurance Apprentice. “He has a long history with our publication and enjoys a close connection with our readership and other stakeholders in the broader financial services industry”.
Gareth has welcomed the opportunity to serve FAnews’ diverse readership and get back to his writing roots. “This was a spur of the moment decision following an informal discussion with Rianet about the challenges facing print and online media, especially in the insurance sector,” he says. “I am proud to align my financial journalism pedigree with the undisputed leader in South African insurance news”.
