A.P. Reid Insurance Named Brokerage of the Year

Excellent Customer Service Helps A.P. Reid Claim Top Honours from 2011 IBANS Insurance Awards

HALIFAX, NOVA SCOTIA--(Marketwire - April 13, 2011) - A.P. Reid Insurance Stores was given the highest honour an insurance brokerage in Nova Scotia can receive when they were announced as Brokerage of the Year at the 2011 IBANS Insurance Awards on April 6th.

Presented by Carolyn James, President of the Insurance Brokers Association of Nova Scotia, the award recognizes a member brokerage that is active in both the industry and wider community, supports the broker distribution network and encourages the professional development of their staff. The IBANS website also notes that A.P. Reid won in part because of their solid business practices and customer service that is "second to none".

The recognition comes after a successful 2010, which saw a number of landmarks for A.P. Reid. They included Jamie Reid succeeding Aileen Reid, his mother and founder of the company, as CEO; a corporate partnership with the Canadian Red Cross; and new offices opening up in New Glasgow and Cape Breton.

"Although it is a huge honor to accept this award on behalf of APREID, this awards evening is really all about our people," said Jamie Reid. "The wonderful, hardworking, and dedicated insurance advisors, admin and support staff who make up our company."

The awards program, designed for property and casualty insurance professionals, celebrates the work done by IBANS members and other insurance companies and providers throughout the year. The award program was launched in 2008.

"This is a wonderful vehicle for promoting our industry and the many talented and dedicated people working in it every day," states Carolyn James. "It provides us with an opportunity to honour those organizations and individuals who enhance the broker distribution network and industry as a whole."
