AMELIA, Ohio--(BUSINESS WIRE)--American Modern Insurance Group named Sheri Zukowski as National Sales Leader of the Year at the specialty insurer’s annual sales awards banquet held in Charleston, SC on January 27, 2014. The banquet also recognized six President’s Cup winners for achieving outstanding sales results in 2013.
“But, the individual accolades pale in comparison to my pride at being part of a team that accomplished such tremendous things in 2013.”
Zukowski, a resident of Shawnee, Kansas who is senior territory manager for the states of Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska and Iowa, won the top award for significantly exceeding her objectives in identifying new business opportunities, growing premium and generating leads.
“Sheri’s performance set the bar very high for our sales team and helped contribute to an excellent overall year that saw us exceeding some very ambitious goals,” said Dick Dowd, senior vice president of sales. “In addition, she had a lot of help from other members of our team, especially the six individuals who earned our President’s Cup award for sales excellence.”
President’s Cup winners honored at the banquet, included:
- Brett Carter from Oswego, Illinois, who is senior territory manager for Illinois, Minnesota and Wisconsin;

- Kelli Woosley from Cincinnati, Ohio who is a business development representative for the west region.
While accepting the award before an audience that included the sales team and senior managers from other American Modern departments, Zukowski tried to put it into perspective.
“It’s always self-affirming to receive recognition such as this from your management because it says that you’ve done your job well and contributed to the success of your team,” Zukowski said. “But, the individual accolades pale in comparison to my pride at being part of a team that accomplished such tremendous things in 2013.”
