Albuquerque, N.M., September 20, 2007 - The National Association of Professional Insurance Agents has named the Robert A. Schneider Agency as the recipient of its 2007 Managing General Agency of the Year Award.

The annual 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 held in Albuquerque, New Mexico on September 15, 2007.

Schneider Agency, has been helping Professional Insurance Agents write their challenging lines of business for 33 years," said PIA National President-elect Robert Page, in presenting the award. In fact, they work with all agencies - from large firms to one-person agencies. Unlike most of their competitors, they do not mandate any minimum premium volume. "

In addition, the Minnetonka, Minnesota-based firm is a leader in the implementation of agency technology, developing and administering its own client, accounting and imaging system which has enabled it to become a completely paperless operation.

"On behalf of my staff, I would like to express our sincere appreciation for this award," said agency president Robert A. Schneider. "It is truly gratifying to be honored by the customers we serve. We consider this to be the highest compliment we have ever had."
