WASHINGTON — The National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA) has named Frankenmuth Insurance as the recipient of its prestigious 2013 Company Award of Excellence. The presentation was made on September 20, 2013, at a ceremony held in conjunction with PIA’s Fall Governance Meetings in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“Frankenmuth Insurance is a true partner for Professional Insurance Agents,” said PIA National President Andrew C. Harris, in presenting the award. “In addition to their outstanding product line, Frankenmuth Insurance does business through 530 local independent agencies in a total of 15 states. It is with pride that PIA National bestows the 2013 Company Award of Excellence to a stalwart business partner and staunch supporter of agents.”

The 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.

“Receiving this national industry recognition is particularly gratifying since it comes directly from the independent insurance agents with whom we partner,” said Frankenmuth Insurance Chairman, President and CEO John Benson. “We strive to continually exceed their expectations, and receiving the 2013 PIA National Company Award of Excellence is confirmation we are achieving that goal.”

“We are truly honored to be selected to receive this award from the PIA National,” said Frankenmuth Senior Vice President Fred Edmond. “Our commitment to supporting our independent agency partners aligns both our interests and contributes to our mutual success. On behalf of our dedicated employees, leadership and Board of Directors, we wish to thank the PIA National as well as the Michigan PIA for nominating our organization.”

“With the advancement of technology, automation and product pricing sophistication, we cannot forget this is still a people business,” Edmond said. “It’s not always about just finding the lowest price, but it's about working with those you know, trust and like. Our mutual success is based upon strong agency partnerships and meaningful relationships.”
