SFM and Underwriter Jeff Magee recognized by the IIAN
The Independent Insurance Agents of Nebraska recognized SFM for outstanding effort and service with two annual awards for 2022.
Senior Marketing Underwriter Jeff Magee was named the IIAN’s Company Representative of the Year and SFM was named Five Star Company of the Year for 2022.
Company Representative of the Year: Jeff Magee
The Company Representative of the Year award considers an individual’s support of the “Big I,” company-agent relations, new business production and agents’ ability to give their clients superior service. Magee’s nomination cited both his service to agencies and leadership within the organization.
“Jeff goes out of his way to make sure he is providing our agency with the highest level of service and truly values the relationship we have with SFM,” the nominator said. “Jeff has been an active leader on the IIAN Foundation Board, and promoter of our Nextgen group. Jeff is a great leader in our industry.”
Magee, who is based in Omaha, Nebraska, has been an underwriter with SFM for six years. He’s spent time working in a variety of roles for both carriers and agencies throughout his 25-year career in the insurance industry. He currently serves as president of Kids’ Chance of Nebraska , a nonprofit organization that provides scholarships to the children of Nebraska workers who have been severely or fatally injured on the job.
Five Star Company of the Year: SFM
The Five Star Company of the Year award is based on agents’ ratings of carriers in the following areas: technology, personnel, policy issuance, products/markets, claims, agency support, extraordinary factors (such as charity work or lobbying efforts) and overall relationship.
“We’re so grateful to our agency partners in the Nebraska ‘Big I’ for this meaningful recognition,” said VP of Regional Business Shawn Miner. “This award leaves us humbled and even more inspired to continue working hard for our Nebraska agents.”
