2013 Insurance Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony
IIS Industry Recognition
From its beginning, insurance was designed to serve a major role in society - - protecting against risks to financial security, preserving assets, fueling economic growth and providing investments for the future. The value and impact of insurance has grown considerably since its inception because of its basic premise: the creation of a better life for those who use it.
The benefits of insurance have been possible through the achievements of insurance leaders – innovators, visionaries and thinkers – whose intellect, perseverance and creativity has enriched the lives of millions and expanded the influence of insurance worldwide. In turn, these qualities of leadership are recognized through the International Insurance Society’s industry awards program.
