The O’Neill Group Ranks High on List of State Auto Agencies

Wadsworth, OH, January 10, 2010 --( The O’Neill Group Insurance Agency has achieved a superior sales ranking of #97, out of the 3,121 independent agencies in 34 states that represent State Auto. The list of the top 100 State Auto agencies, referred to as the State Auto Star Parade, was released earlier this week after sales calculations were finished for the 2009 year.

In addition to the coveted #97 spot, The O’Neill Group has also once again obtained State Auto’s “Inner Circle” status. The Inner Circle is an elite group recognized by Columbus-based State Auto Insurance Company. The achievement honors successful agencies that demonstrate outstanding sales, service and business management. The O’Neill Group has represented State Auto since 1924, with last year marking the group’s 85th anniversary of offering State Auto products.

“We’re proud to have an agency like the O’Neill Group representing our companies in Ohio,” added State Auto Chairman/CEO Robert Restrepo in response to The O’Neill Group’s Star Parade ranking and Inner Circle achievement.

“I am proud of what our outstanding team members have accomplished this past year. In a difficult economic climate they worked particularly hard to achieve this and other goals. Our clients also benefit from the strong business relationships we maintain with our insurance companies, like State Auto,” said Patrick O’Neill, President and CEO of The O’Neill Group.

As an independent insurance agency, The O’Neill Group represents various companies, including State Auto, and provides Property and Casualty programs, Life and Health programs, and Financial Services to residents and businesses in Wadsworth and the surrounding community.
