DES MOINES – Paul Hall, owner and primary agent of Paul Hall and Associates and Anna Hall, Managing Associate Agent at Paul Hall and Associates, were recognized at the Nationwide Agribusiness Insurance Company national sales conference held in Bonita Springs, Fla., as one of the company’s leading writers of farm insurance.

The annual FAST Track Conference was held in recognition of top-producing agents in sales of new farm insurance policies during the 2014 calendar year.

“Our FAST Track Conference recognizes agents who have made the commitment to specialize in farm insurance — an increasingly complex line of business,” said Joel Feller, sales development director, Nationwide, Des Moines. “As the number one insurance writer of farms and ranches in the country, we’re proud to acknowledge agents who excel in doing so.”

While more than 6,400 agencies write farm insurance for Nationwide, only 65 qualified for the 2014 FAST Track Conference.

Not only did Paul Hall and Associates qualify for the conference, but they have consistently been invited to this prestigious event for many years because of their continued growth in the farm insurance market.

“Congratulations to Paul Hall and Associates on reaching this level of recognition,” said Feller, “and for their ongoing dedication to protecting Ohio and Kentucky farmers.”
