As we bid farewell to another incredible year, the team at Associated Insurance Managers is thrilled to reflect on the numerous achievements and memorable events that made 2023 truly exceptional. We are excited to share our journey with you, our cherished clients, as we look back on the highlights that have defined our commitment to excellence, community involvement, and long-standing partnerships.
Safeco Ignite Elite Recognition
One of our proudest moments this year was being recognized by Safeco Insurance as an Ignite Elite agency. This prestigious honor is a testament to our outstanding performance and unwavering commitment to being a trusted advisor for our customers. We are humbled to be among the fewer than 10% of independent insurance agencies nationwide that have earned this esteemed distinction.
Travelers S.T.A.R. Award
Celebrating nearly three decades of partnership with Travelers Insurance, we were honored to receive the Superior Travelers Agent Recognition (S.T.A.R.) award. This accolade reflects our dedication to maintaining a strong and enduring relationship with Travelers, a company that has been an exemplary partner throughout our journey.
Agent Technology Council Representation
Our very own Christy Hogan had the privilege of representing our region at the Travelers' Agent Technology Council in Hartford, CT. Christy's selection by the local field sales leadership team is a testament to her expertise and our agency's commitment to staying at the forefront of industry advancements. The Agent Technology Council provides a platform for independent agents to offer insights into emerging Travelers initiatives and capabilities, showcasing our commitment to staying ahead of the curve.
Kathy Hudson's 35-Year Milestone
This year, we proudly celebrated Kathy Hudson's remarkable achievement of 35 years as an independent insurance agent. Kathy's dedication and expertise have been invaluable to our team, and we extend our heartfelt congratulations on this incredible milestone.
Team Reward Trip to Florida
Recognizing the hard work and dedication of our Personal Lines team, we treated them to a well-deserved reward trip to Florida. This trip was a small token of our appreciation for their continuous efforts in providing excellent service to our clients.
Community Involvement at "We're Here for You" Golf Tournament
Our commitment to community extends beyond our daily operations, as demonstrated by Rick and Christy's participation in the "We're Here for You" Golf Tournament. Rick, a longstanding board member of the Outreach Center of West Houston, along with his son Luke and sons-in-law, secured 2nd place in the tournament held at Riverbend Country Club in Sugar Land, TX. Christy, ever the enthusiastic volunteer, contributed to the success of the event by selling 50/50 tickets. The tournament's proceeds benefited the Outreach Center, a charity that has positively impacted our community for over 26 years.
As we close the chapter on 2023, we express our deepest gratitude to our clients, partners, and the entire Associated Insurance Managers team for making this year truly remarkable. We eagerly anticipate the opportunities and challenges that the new year will bring, and we remain steadfast in our commitment to providing unparalleled service and support.
Wishing you a joyous holiday season and a prosperous New Year!
