The MacNeill Group has been honored by being named the recipient of the first annual PIA National Managing General Agency of the Year Award.  The award recognizes outstanding achievement in furthering the interests of agents, a commitment to the agency system and successful efforts to create a better business environment for professional insurance agents.

The award was presented during a ceremony in Savannah, Georgia on September 9, 2006.

"The MacNeill Group, is unique in that it's partnership with and support of PIA of Florida goes back 50 years," said PIA National Vice President/Treasurer Robert Page, who presented the award. "When the first of the recent big hurricanes hit Florida in 2004, the MacNeill Group's President was on the phone to PIA with one question: 'How can we help?' MacNeill's dedication to agents continued throughout the devastating 2004 hurricane season and into 2005's." 

The nomination of the MacNeill Group was made by PIA of Florida. "MacNeill has an unsurpassed commitment to PIA of Florida, as evidenced by their 50-year strong membership, the longest-standing partner membership in our organization," noted PIA of Florida Executive Vice President Mark O'Connell in making the nomination. "This commitment to PIA extends to agents across the state and is evidenced by MacNeill's support during the horrific 2004 and 2005 hurricane seasons when the company reached out to insureds and agents alike, offering assistance."

The award was accepted by MacNeill Group President Doug Bullington.
