Bellefontaine High School class of 2000 graduate Matt Simon has been named the Young Agent of the Year Award. The award is presented annually by The National Association of Professional Insurance Agents.
He received the award at the Professional Insurance Agents National Awards Luncheon in Arlington, Virginia.
Contestants are judged on professionalism, achievement, and contributions to the insurance industry.
Simon separated himself with his willingness to educate his clients, to form positive relationships with his associates, and to commit his energy to meeting all of his client's needs.
He has been vigilant in making sure that clients worry about more than just the cost of insurance premiums noting "at the end of the day, if you don't have the coverage you need for a devastating claim, it doesn't matter what you paid."
Simon, who has been in insurance since 2004, joined Hill & Hamilton in Bellefontaine in 2006 as an insurance advisor.
Simon is the oldest of three of Tom and Andrea Simon of Bellefontaine. He and his wife Jaime live in Dublin.
