retail property insurance brokerageSAN MATEO, Calif., Feb. 22 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — EPIC (Edgewood Partners Insurance Center), a retail property, casualty and employee benefits insurance brokerage, announced today that Allen Amos and Nancy Hahn have been recognized by Risk and Insurance magazine as 2011 property and casualty insurance “Power Brokers.”

To qualify for a Power Broker designation, nominees must be considered a top performer in a particular industry practice sector. The three principal criteria for evaluating candidates are creative risk problem solving, industry practice expertise and client service. Amos and Hahn were two of only 144 people nationwide to be selected from thousands of nominations received by Risk & Insurance this year.

During the course of nominee interviews, a client of Amos’s stated, “Allen’s knowledge and history with transportation has helped me guide my corporation through the proper channels of protection.” A second client noted that, “Allen has more technical knowledge than any other insurance broker I have dealt with. He is not your typical salesman.”

Hahn’s clients were equally complimentary. “Nancy has a lot of integrity. I never feel that she is applying sales pressure,” one client said. “As a result of staying ahead of the game, Nancy is always able to present us with different approaches and venues. She is very technically skilled and personable and she always comes to meetings extraordinarily well prepared.”

Amos and Hahn are both EPIC shareholders and principals. Amos is based in the company’s San Ramon division where he specializes in transportation and trucking. Hahn divides her time between offices in San Mateo and San Francisco, focusing on the needs of technology companies and financial institutions.

“Nancy has been a partner, great friend, and confidant for 31 years,” said EPIC co-founder and chief executive officer, Dan Francis. “I cannot think of anyone more deserving of this recognition. Nancy is the epitome of the EPIC spirit.”

“And in life, there are those who seek attention and then there are those who, day in and day out, ‘get it done,’” Francis noted. “Allen is a person who takes care of business and consistently produces strong results because he focuses first on the needs of others. It is what makes Allen an outstanding broker.”
