LONGWOOD, Florida, Sept. 16, 1016 – Insurance Office of America (IOA) is honored to be named 14th on Orlando Business Journal‘s 2016 Golden 100 list. An award luncheon was held today to recognize honorees and their commitment to growing not only the state’s economy, but the regional economy as well. Recipients of the coveted award were announced prior to the event on Aug. 9, 2016.
“It’s an honor to make such a prestigious list,” said CEO Heath Ritenour. “While our goal has never been to grow for growth’s sake and we understand the temptation to focus solely on growth and the next deal, at IOA, we strive to get better every single day knowing that, if we do, growth will take care of itself.”
