ATLANTIC CITY, NJ: Glenn Watkins of Sewell, N.J. was awarded the NJYIP Director of the Year award by the New Jersey Young Insurance Professionals at the Professional Insurance Agents of New Jersey and New York state’s Joint Annual Business Conference, held at the Trump Taj Mahal Resort Casino, June 12-14.

The NJYIP Director of the Year award is given to an individual who actively supports and works for the goals and objectives of NJYIP. Watkins was honored for his leadership, attention to responsibilities and tireless work ethic.

In 2007, Watkins was awarded the John Laux Company Person of the Year award. This award honors a company member of NJYIP who exemplifies a commitment to the high standards of professionalism, networking and service. This award was instituted in 1995 in memory of John Laux, a former NJYIP company member, who lost his valiant battle with cancer earlier that year.

Watkins received PIANJ’s Company Professional of the Year in 2005. PIANJ presents this award to the company representative who best fosters a sound working relationship between insurance agents and companies, and who exemplifies a commitment to professionalism and service as a company professional.

“Glenn continuously strives to provide outstanding service and enthusiasm to association initiatives,” said Tom Wilkins, newly elected president of NJYIP. “His tireless commitment to NJYIP, and the industry make him more than deserving of this recognition.”
