The National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA) has named Auto-Owners Insurance Company as the recipient of its 2017 Company Award of Excellence.
The presentation was made on September 15, 2017, at a gala ceremony held in conjunction with PIA’s Board of Directors meeting in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
The PIA National Company Award of Excellence honors a company for its commitment to PIA, to the American Agency System and to furthering the interests of professional insurance agents by creating a better business environment.
“Auto-Owners is highly deserving of this, our association’s highest company honor,” said PIA National President Gary Blackwell, in presenting the award. “For independent agents, Auto-Owners is a true partner. Many of us have placed Auto-Owners Insurance high among the carriers we represent. There are many good reasons for this: Financial strength and stability. Excellent service. Superior products. Unparalleled quality. And ease of doing business.”
“We are honored and humbly accept this award on behalf of the associates of Auto-Owners that make such awards possible,” said Auto-Owners Chairman & CEO Jeff Harrold, who along with Mary Pierce, senior vice president, marketing & sales, was on hand for the presentation.
