The June 2018 issue of the National Underwriter features a profile of PIA National Executive Vice President & CEO Mike Becker. The article traces Mike’s career at PIA, delves into his leadership philosophy. Mike talks about some of the issues that independent agents face, empowering agents with the new PIA Market Access Program – and his love of baseball.

from the article:

An attribute that sets PIA apart from some other organizations is its sense of mission, Becker asserts. “This is one thing I hope never will change about PIA — our sense of mission,” he says. “PIA has a vision of how our industry, lawmakers and regulators should treat independent insurance agents: with the respect they earn every day.” To earn that respect, he notes, PIA engages in advocacy — before Congress, state legislatures and regulatory bodies.

But there’s much more at work. Becker says there’s a sense of common interest, of camaraderie, that “has bonded PIA members from our founding in 1931 until today. It’s part self-interest, of course, but there’s an intense feeling that our association contributes to the greater good.”
