NRH: HealthMarkets Receives Prestigious Marketing Awards
For the third year in a row, HealthMarkets, one of the largest independent health insurance agencies in the US that distributes health, Medicare, life and supplemental insurance products from more than 200 companies, was honored at the annual Insurance Marketing and Communications Association (IMCA) Conference and Showcase Gala in Minneapolis.
The company received seven different marketing industry awards, including the company’s chief marketing officer, Michael Stahl, being the recipient of the inaugural IMCA Icon Award.
The IMCA Icon Award recognizes “the person whose strategy, energy and strong performance provides an inspiring example of how marketing and communications can advance an insurance organization’s business objectives, while elevating the standard for exceptional work through innovation, creativity and impact in the marketplace.”
In addition to this top honor, the company received six additional awards, including two Best of Show and four Award of Excellence awards.
“We are honored to have the results of our hard work recognized by the IMCA again this year,” Stahl said.
“To receive this recognition from our peers in insurance, marketing and communications speaks volumes about the strength of our team, the quality of our work and our overall commitment to excellence. I could not be prouder of our team and company, and I could not be more humbled to be the first ever recipient of the Icon award.”
The IMCA competition includes a wide range of marketing categories that are judged on numerous criteria including:
· Strategy and goals
· Design and presentation
· Content/audience and focus
Judging is conducted by teams of marketing, advertising, communications, design and audiovisual professionals from outside and within the insurance industry.
