Mike Becker has been named Executive Vice President & CEO of the National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA National), effective December 10, 2013. The announcement was made by PIA National Executive Vice President & CEO Ron Von Haden.

“PIA is pleased that Mike Becker will assume his new responsibilities on behalf of our national association,” said Von Haden, who will continue as Executive Vice President of PIA of Wisconsin when he relinquishes the additional duties he had assumed at PIA National over the past year. “We are proud that PIA is moving forward in such a dynamic manner.”

Becker heads PIA’s day-to-day lobbying efforts on Capitol Hill. He began his career at PIA in March of 2007, rising to Assistant Vice President of Federal Affairs, then being appointed to his current position of Vice President of Federal Affairs in February 2013. Prior to joining PIA, he worked on the congressional relations team for the Consumer Healthcare Products Association (CHPA), an organization representing pharmaceutical companies. He joined CHPA in 2004 after a stint as a legislative staffer on Capitol Hill.

“Mike Becker is a can-do person who is fully and firmly committed to the continuing success of PIA,” said PIA National President John G. Lee. “He is the right person at the right time for PIA. The leaders of PIA National are determined that our Association will continue to grow and prosper in the years to come.” Lee added that Mr. Becker’s strong background as a federal lobbyist does not mean that PIA’s emphasis will change. “PIA is firmly committed to maintaining and continuing to expand the full range of legislative and regulatory advocacy, carrier relations and services that we currently provide on behalf of our members.”
