Calls, emails and letters of congratulations from across the country are finding their way to Richmond’s RMD/Patti Insurance. Industry peers are responding to news that Independent Insurance Agents of Indiana, Inc. (IIAI) has named RMD/Patti its 2010 Agency of the year. Now in its 112th year, this statewide award finds its home in Richmond for the first time in decades. RMD/Patti was nominated from a pool of over 600 Indiana member agencies. Finalists were evaluated by the judging committee according to standardized award criteria. According to the IIA,
“This award is given to a member agency that exemplifies leadership and innovation within the independent agency system. RMD/Patti Insurance Agency scored high in the category of unique and innovative marketing strategies, a strong agency perpetuation plan providing a solid base for a continued family-owned independent insurance agency; agency-company relationships, current technologies and utilization of automation, premium volume and policy count, and involvement in IIAI programs and activities, as well as contributions to the community in which they serve.”
RMD/Patti traces its roots to 1927. The company’s modern structure is a byproduct of numerous mergers and acquisitions following the formation of Robbins, Mathery, Dils Agency in 1967. Jerry Dils, founding principal, continues to lead the company as President. The executive team also includes Rick Niersbach, Executive Vice President; Jenny Dils, VP-Insurance Sales; Greg Easley, VP-Insurance Sales; John Dils, VP-Business Development; Anna Lohmoeller, Director of Operations; Tyler Vanderpool, Director of Benefits; Todd Byrd, Director of Benefits; and Tom Schamel, Director of Marketing.
RMD/Patti represents strong providers of personal, commercial, life and health insurance products. Insurance clients from across the nation are served by RMD/Patti agents, service, claims and support teams from Richmond, Indianapolis and Liberty, Indiana offices. The company also operates three complimentary, non-insurance business units: RMD/Patti Financial Services, Wellnessworks and Momentum Marketing. As a full service creative services, advertising and business development firm, Momentum Marketing is also the force behind the unique and innovative marketing that helped RMD/Patti earn its 2010 award. Momentum Marketing also prepared the written application profile used by judges to help determine the award. RMD/Patti accepted the award during a ceremony at the IIAI Annual Conference in November. Based in Indianapolis, the Independent Insurance Agents of Indiana provides its members quality legislative and regulatory representation while serving as the state's premier provider of insurance agent education.
