A local insurance agency owner was recognized this past weekend with a high honor within the company.
Jay Peterson owns the Pekin Insurance Agency in Clinton, and Saturday night was presented with the Robert T. Tebben "Agency of the Year". Peterson explains the award goes to the top agency based on a number of factors.
To receive the award was a complete shock to him however, he explains the banquet is an annual event for the agency, which he normally attends alone. However, once he arrived, his family several members of his office staff were there, which tipped him off something was going on.
Peterson credits his staff for their hard work and dedication to the company. He feels Pekin Insurance is a great company to work for and credits them for their long standing relationship with his business.
Peterson and his staff are excited about the award.
They utilized the Wednesday Chamber of Commerce Business Expo as an opportunity to display the award to their customers and those who attended.
