PIA of Florida Announces Award Winners at Agent Expo 2015

Tallahassee, FL – March 5, 2015 – During the Agent Advocacy & Awards Luncheon at the enormously successful Agent Expo 2015, PIA of Florida presented the Agency of the Year, Partner of the Year, and Brain Marino Service Award.

“PIA of Florida is proud to recognize those agents and companies that support our association and allow us to have such a strong impact on the Florida insurance industry” says Corey Mathews, CEO/Executive Vice President of PIA of Florida.  “It is important to recognize those that make our industry so great.”


Agency of the Year: McMahon and Hadder Insurance

McMahon and Hadder Insurance headquartered in Pensacola, Florida provides top quality personal, commercial, and employee benefit insurance solutions for the state of Florida. They are committed to establishing successful partnerships between their clients, staff, and their companies so that the interests and goals of each party are respected and obtained. One of their main philosophies is to be proactive and not reactive in their approach to service, and it truly shows in their dedication to their clients. McMahon and Hadder Insurance has been involved with PIA of Florida for over 20 years and we look forward to their continued involvement.


Partner of the Year: Security First Insurance Company

Founded in 2005, Security First Insurance Company has become one of Florida's largest and most trusted names in homeowners insurance. Security First Insurance was built on a nearly 100-year history in insurance and an acute understanding of Florida's vulnerability to natural catastrophe. Their founder, Locke Burt, served in the Florida Senate in 1992 when one of the worst U.S. natural disasters, Hurricane Andrew, roared through South Florida. Locke witnessed the devastation first hand, which left behind more than $26 billion in insured losses. Locke’s experience and keen understanding of Florida’s inherent vulnerability to natural disasters has helped shape his vision for Security First; an organization that maintains an unwavering commitment to Florida.
