Wed, May 9, 2012 - Broker Craig Musico named 2011 IBAO Broker of the Year
(Toronto, Ontario), October 21, 2011, Sarnia resident Craig Musico, insurance broker from Callister Musico Ins. Group Inc., was presented with the Insurance Brokers Association of Ontario’s (IBAO) 2011 Broker of the Year Award of Excellence during IBAO’s 91st Annual Convention held this past weekend in Toronto.
IBAO’s membership includes over 12,000 brokers province-wide and this Awards event highlights the achievements and initiatives of IBAO’s most outstanding members through their local work as businesspeople and as involved and caring community citizens. Craig was selected as this year’s Broker of the Year Award of Excellence recipient for his community and professional contributions that are examples of the great impact insurance brokers have on their communities.
Craig is very involved in the community, and in the recent past was awarded a ‘Coach of the Year’ from Sarnia Minor Hockey. He visits local schools to discuss money management and has spoken at the local college on the importance of protection with starting your own business. In the past year, his brokerage has doubled its staff in order to respond to consumer demand. This is an achievement Craig says “is a reflection of a strong team that works with consumers through our four business philosophy pillars – professionalism, independence, integrity and excellence.
“Insurance Brokers are known to be very active and involved in their communities,” said IBAO CEO Randy Carroll. “Craig is equally committed to growing his business and to his community, which makes him the perfect recipient for this award.”
Craig obtained his Fellow Chartered Insurance Professional (FCIP) designation and is working on a broker principal designation.
“I am honoured to be recognized by my industry peers. Our organization’s core values are based on the premise of understanding the needs of our clients and offering the very best solutions. Insurance can be challenging at times and we want our clients to know that solutions do not always come easy, but we are here to provide assistance, support and advice when they require it. It’s this dedication by every member of our team, that allows us to build such great partnerships with our clients and as a result we are able to take the same approach in giving back to many community initiatives.”
