Awards & Recognition

AUGIE is pleased to recognize our supporters.

The Andy Fogarty Industry Impact Award

The Andy Fogarty Industry Impact Award has now been established in honor of Andy Fogarty, a 40+ year participant of the Independent Agent distribution channel who worked at IBM in Insurance Industry Marketing and then joined Ohio Casualty Insurance as CIO, was the ACORD chairman of the Board, an ACORD Board member and who continues to support AUGIE, and the industry long after he has officially retired from Ohio Casualty in 1997.

“There are many unsung heroes who work very hard, some in the spotlight, and many others in the background, to further the cause of independent agents. These are the people who are working in carriers, agencies, vendors, user groups and as industry thought leaders to help advance processes and technologies to make things more efficient, more effective and better for agents. Please let us know who they are and why they should receive this year’s “Andy Fogarty Industry Impact Award” – Please click and complete the short nomination survey
