Pekin Insurance® Recognizes Winning Performances of Top Agents and Agencies

For the 52nd consecutive year, Pekin Insurance has held Award and Appreciation Banquets to honor agents and agencies for insurance production that has gone Beyond the expected.® This year, 46 Full Circle Agency Awards, 119 Underwriter of Merit Awards, 122 Gold Key Awards, 144 Silver Key Awards, and 97 Inner Circle Club memberships were presented at banquets held throughout the month of March in the states of Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Ohio, and Wisconsin.

The Full Circle Agency Award was given in recognition of exceptionally high standards of service to an agency’s customers and community. As our top award, the Full Circle Agency Award is given only to an agency which has demonstrated outstanding professional performance in both the Property/Casualty and Life and Health lines of insurance.

The Underwriter of Merit Award was presented to those agencies who demonstrated professional skill and knowledge in the field of property/casualty insurance, which was the foundation for agencies to earn the award.

The company’s Gold and Silver Key Awards annually honor those individual agents who displayed superiority in the sales of life and health insurance.

Membership in the Inner Circle Club was achieved by those agents who earned a Gold Key Award and produced excellent performance levels in the sales of life and health insurance and who also excelled beyond that to be among the top 5% of producers for Pekin Life Insurance Company.

The coveted Robert T. Tebben Agency of the Year Award was presented to one agency in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Ohio, and Wisconsin. This coveted award honors the late Robert T. Tebben, who in his over 50 years of service to the company, contributed more than any other single individual to the present success of Pekin Insurance. He believed that all Pekin Insurance agencies should strive to be Full Circle Service Agencies which provide a full range of services to their customers. The winners of this astute award were as follows: Midland Insurance Agency in Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois; Myers and Hayden Insurance, Inc., in Fort Wayne, Indiana; First Gabrielson Agency in Belmond, Thornton, and Clear Lake, Iowa; Williamson Insurance Services of Zanesville, Inc., in Zanesville, Ohio; and Bock Insurance Agency, Inc., in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.
