Marketing Agreement Expands PIA Agents Business Opportunities to Include Vehicle Service Contracts

WASHINGTON, June 2, 2004 - The National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA) is pleased to announce a new marketing partnership, effective immediately, with GE Auto Warranty Services (GE AWS).  Under the terms of an exclusive, long-term national marketing agreement, agent members will be able to partner with GE AWS to market vehicle service contracts to auto dealers.

"GE AWS's high tech administration, competitive products and compliance mindset, coupled with the professional insurance experience of PIA agents makes this a winning combination," said Elizabeth B. Luce, PIA National Services Board President.

"GE Auto Warranty Services is pleased that an association with the size and reputation of PIA would select GE AWS as their exclusive Service Contract Provider," said Jim Slavik, GE AWS President.  "PIA agents can be confident that GE AWS conducts its business in the same professional and customer-focused manner with which they treat their own customers,"
