Celebrating the PIA

Robertson Ryan & Associates logo

We are proud to recognize RRA team members past, present and upcoming professional accomplishments. Robertson Ryan has a long history of being involved in the Professional Insurance Agents (PIA) of Wisconsin. We are Wisconsin’s largest Independent Insurance Agency and 1 of 620 Wisconsin agencies involved in the state’s PIA. Beyond Wisconsin, we are a high contributing member of PIA on a national level.

PIA was founded with objectives that are as relevant today as they were back in 1931:

  • Educate agency owners and staff about insurance concepts
  • Keep agents informed about changing company offerings
  • Allow agents to assist one another in proper underwriting of their business
  • Increase cooperation between carriers and agents
  • Encourage uniform policy writing and assist in proper form completion
  • Advocate for agents in legislative matters
  • Foster acquaintanceship among agents so they could support one another
  • Protect the American Agency System

We’re proud to recognize the following RRA Agent Owners:

Jim Polaski, Mark Besting and Dennis Kuhnke are all Past Presidents of PIA in Wisconsin. For a company to have 3 past presidents, that’s outstanding!

At the WI PIA Convention last week Sean Paterson was elected President and is starting his 1 year term. Congrats Sean!

Dennis Kuhnke will be elected PIA National President next month. This is yet another significant accomplishment!

We recognize it takes a lot to balance family, career and volunteerism, so we owe a great deal of gratitude to everyone volunteering in our industry and in the communities we work and live in.
