WASHINGTON, September 9, 2003 - The National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA) has presented Progressive Insurance with its prestigious Company Award of Excellence for 2003. The award was presented September 6, 2003 during a ceremony in Milwaukee, Wisconsin held in conjunction with a national PIA board of directors meeting.

The annual PIA National Company Award of Excellence honors companies for their commitment to PIA, to the American Agency System, and to furthering the interests and creating a better business environment for independent insurance agents.

PIA National President Carl Stoecklin and incoming President-Elect Terry Adams presented the award to Progressive. "This year's recipient of the PIA National Company Award of Excellence is a carrier with a longstanding commitment to independent insurance agents," Adams said. "Progressive demonstrates that commitment every day and is a steadfast supporter of the agency distribution system."

The award was accepted by Willy Graves, Director of Agent Marketing for Progressive Insurance (pictured above, on the right, with Adams).

"This award was bestowed on us by PIA members - independent insurance agencies - and, to us, acknowledges our efforts to help them grow by providing them with the products, technology and services that help them attract - and retain - more business. Progressive thanks the agents of the PIA for this award - it means a lot to us. It helps affirm our strategy and highlights our commitment to independent agents. We value our long-standing relationship with them and look forward to continuing to grow together."

Nominations for the 2004 PIA National Company Award of Excellence, to be presented in September 2004, will be accepted beginning in January 2004.

Founded in 1931, PIA is a national trade association which represents member insurance agents and their employees in all 50 states and Puerto Rico who sell and service all kinds of insurance, but specialize in coverage of automobiles, homes and businesses.
