PIA National Names Ryan Von Haden
2016 Young Insurance Professional of the Year

RyanAwards web

WASHINGTON — Ryan Von Haden, Partner and Vice President of Business Accounts with TRICOR insurance in Madison, Wisconsin, has been named the 2016 PIA National Young Insurance Professional of the Year. The award was presented April 8, 2016, by the National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA) and was sponsored by The Rough Notes Company.

            “You know that a young agent is destined to make his mark on our industry when he has achieved so much, and he’s still just 34 years old,” said PIA National Vice President/Treasurer Tim Russell, in presenting the award. “Ryan is Partner and Vice President of Business Accounts with TRICOR insurance in Lancaster, Wisconsin. He started with the agency in commercial sales in 2006. In 10 years, he grew his own personal book of business from scratch—zero dollars—to $8 million in gross premiums. He became a partner in 2014, the first non-family partner in the 71-year history of the agency.”

            Von Haden has been heavily involved in PIA of Wisconsin (PIAW) and was Chairman of the PIAW Young Professionals Club for six years. During that time, he took a fledgling scholarship program that was happy to award one $500 scholarship to a young student—and turned it into a single day golf outing that provides up to $25,000 annually in scholarships, to deserving students who are pursuing a career in the insurance industry.

            Ryan Von Haden is the son of PIA of Wisconsin Executive Vice President Ron Von Haden, who has dedicated more than four decades of his life to serving PIA. “We are extremely proud of Ryan and his fellow young professionals for the work they have done to provide scholarships as well as his dynamic personal sales and family achievements,” said Ron Von Haden.  

            “Encouraging young people to consider a career as a professional insurance agent must be a top priority for all of us,” Russell said. “We are particularly pleased to partner with the Rough Notes Company in this important effort.”


               The PIA National Young Insurance Professional of the Year award recognizes outstanding achievement by a young insurance professional. Sponsored for the eleventh year in a row by The Rough Notes Company, it was presented during a gala luncheon ceremony on April 8, 2016, in Arlington, Virginia, held during national PIA meetings which followed the 2016 PIA Federal Legislative Summit.
