When Target Markets Program Administrator Association (TMPAA) announced the creation of its Certified Programs Leader (CPL) designation 2 years ago, the intention was to build an educational program (Target University) around the most critical elements for program administration success. The designation was to provide a vehicle that recognized individuals who, through education and experience, demonstrated an expertise in programs business. That goal was realized at TMPAA’s 12th annual summit, where nine members were awarded the first designations—the first of its kind.

CPL recipients are: Greg Thompson, chairman, THOMCO; Kim Ayala, president and CEO, Landscape Contractors Insurance Services;  Joseph Peloso, vice president; Penelope Thomas, assistant vice president; Michael Bachman, underwriting specialist and Deborah Francis, assistant vice president of Liberty International Underwriters; and Jeffrey Gauthier, senior vice president; Carolyn Miller, divisional vice president and Julie Roberts, senior production underwriter, Great American Insurance Company.
