FULTON, NY – In an email to agency partners, Travelers Insurance Regional Sales Director Marcus Reidell recently named Oswego Valley Insurance Agencies as winner of its “Western & Central New York Key Agency Partner of the Year” award for 2017.
Although there were several worthy finalists, OVIA stood out from other agencies operating in Western and Central New York with the consistency of its excellence in all key areas: profitability, new business production, retention, and policy growth.
OVIA has grown its Travelers business by over 34% since 2014, an exceptional achievement.
“It is a tremendous honor for our agency to be chosen from more than 300 other agencies that represent Travelers Insurance in this massive portion of New York State. Anyone who has driven from Utica to Buffalo on the New York State Thruway knows how large this section of the state is. To be selected as the top agency is a very special honor for OVIA,” said James Poindexter Jr., OVIA’s president. “We don’t do this for awards or recognition, but it feels good to know that focusing on our customer’s needs and protection is paying off. The proof is in the results. Customers learn quickly from our actions that they can trust us to protect them and save them money.”
The office received a plaque to commemorate the award, and a reception was held at La Parrilla Grill & Wine Bar in Oswego.
In addition to offering a full range of insurance services, OVIA is also deeply involved in the community, supporting United Way of Oswego, Fulton Little League, Making Strides Against Breast Cancer (Syracuse), Christmas in Mexico, Thousand Islands Emergency Rescue Service (TIERS), several area chambers of commerce, and various youth and senior organizations.
Oswego Valley Insurance Agencies, LLC, was founded in 1997 upon the merger of two longstanding local insurance agencies and maintains five offices in Oswego, Onondaga and Jefferson County – including Oswego, Fulton, Brewerton, Mexico, and Clayton – servicing clients all over the State of New York.
OVIA’s local, friendly staff has years of experience in the Upstate New York market, and is committed to earning customer trust by creating coverage options and saving money.
