Michael J. Sicard, USI’s chairman, president and CEO, said, “It’s an incredible honor to have such a wonderful group of Summit winners representing our corporate headquarters. Each day they help to lead and develop our brand as we grow USI into the premier insurance brokerage and consulting firm in the United States. The power of USI, and our ability to bring the best solutions and services to our clients and our communities, comes through the knowledge and experience of great individual associates together as ONE – the USI ONE Advantage™. All of our Summit winners across the country exemplify superior professionalism, a driving passion to succeed and the true spirit of this award, and I am proud to have them as members of the USI family.”
The USI ONE Advantage is a game-changing value proposition that delivers a unique set of enterprise solutions and resources to clients and provides a unique platform and path for the professional development of the Company’s associates. USI ONE™ is an acronym for Omni, Network, Enterprise, and it represents the three key elements that create the USI ONE Advantage and set USI apart as the leading middle market risk management firm in the United States.
The USI Summit Awards were created in 2011 as reward and recognition for USI’s associates country-wide who serve both internal and external clients. It was the first of its kind at USI and unique for the insurance brokerage industry. The “Summit Experience” includes company-wide recognition, local office celebrations, and a “special” off site day planned for the winners in recognition of how they go above and beyond each day in their jobs. For 2014, USI Summit winners nationwide ranged from one to 43 years of service. The Summit 2014 class of honorees increased by 33 percent over last year and will continue to grow as USI’s business expands.
