PIA National has named Erie Insurance Group as the recipient of its prestigious 2010 Company Award of Excellence. The award was presented October 2, 2010 during a ceremony in Traverse City, Michigan held in conjunction with a national PIA board of directors meeting.

"Erie Insurance is an industry leader that is committed to excellence - and achieving it through independent agents," said PIA National President Jon D. Spalding. "PIA and Erie share the same values. That's why I'm pleased to present this award."

The annual 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.

Erie Insurance is constantly striving for excellence while carrying out their founding purpose, which is to provide policyholders with as near perfection protection, as near perfect service as is humanly possible and to do so at the lowest possible cost," said PIA of Indiana President Larry Mayfield.

The award was accepted by Terry Cavanaugh, the President & CEO of Erie Insurance.

"Since the company's beginnings in 1925, Erie has remained dedicated to its independent agents," said Cavanaugh, Erie Insurance president and CEO. "It's a tremendous honor to be recognized nationally by agents for our commitment to the independent agency model.  Independent agents, like consumers, have many options when it comes to insurance carriers and the relationship we have with them is critical. It's my pleasure to accept this recognition on their behalf."
