The National Association of Mutual Insurance Companies named John Bykowski, president and CEO of SECURA Insurance in Appleton, Wis., as the recipient of its 2013 Chairman’s Award today during its 118th Annual Convention in Seattle.
“The Chairman’s Award was established 50 years ago to recognize leadership, accomplishment, and outstanding service,” said Charles M. Chamness, president and CEO of NAMIC. “It would be difficult to find a more accurate description for the work John Bykowski has done, not only for NAMIC, but the property/casualty insurance industry. He’s set the example as an executive, as an active NAMIC member, and as an advocate for the property/casualty insurance industry in Wisconsin and on Capitol Hill.”
Bykowski is a former NAMIC chairman who, in addition to focusing on the issues affecting the property/casualty insurance industry, sought to build on the sense of collegiality and mutuality among NAMIC members. He has also served as the head of the Board of Trustees for NAMIC PAC and on several NAMIC committees.
