Strictly Business: Steve Leitch
The 4,200-member Independent Insurance Agents of Wisconsin announced at its 111th state convention in Madison during early May: IIAW selected local agent Steve Leitch, principal of Leitch Insurance Agency, as its 2010 Agent of the Year.
IIAW President Mark Truyman said, "This honor recognizes an insurance professional who consistently demonstrates an exemplary commitment to our business, the association and their community. Their social and business ethics must be impeccable. Our 2010 Agent of the Year excels in all areas -- community, association and insurance industry involvement. He has spent thousands of hours throughout his career in the needs of business and society."
IIAW representative Eric Schwartz said a committee selects each year's honoree, then its choice is approved by the organization's president. He said Leitch recently completed two terms on the IIAW Board of Directors and has agreed to lead the Smaller Agencies Committee.
