WASHINGTON – The National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA) has named Curt Christofferson of Napoleon, North Dakota as its 2018 Company Representative of the Year. The presentation was made on September 28, 2018 during a gala ceremony held in conjunction with PIA’s Board of Directors meeting in Portland, Maine.

“Curt Christofferson is one of the most knowledgeable marketing people in the area of crop insurance,” said PIA National Vice President/Treasurer Dennis Kuhnke in presenting the award. “Curt is the person agents call when they have a problem or a tough question about crop insurance.”

“When the last round of Farm Bill changes were announced, Curt made it his personal goal to learn all the details of the program, so he could provide answers to the questions that agents were receiving from their farmer-clients,” Kuhnke said.

The criteria used to select the PIA National Company Representative of the Year includes professional experience, assistance given to agents, technical knowledge and demonstrated awareness of industry problems and market conditions. Their contributions to the industry through participation in PIA and other insurance organizations are also considered, as are their contributions to serving the public and their community.

Christofferson, Regional Manager for NAU Country Insurance, began his career in 1988 as a crop adjuster. In 1997, he helped his father launch a start-up company, AgForce. He was promoted to Marketing Manager by NAU Country Insurance, when that company purchased AgForce on the retirement of Curt’s father. Curt received his undergraduate degree from Valley City State University and his Masters degree from Northern State University. Curt was named the PIA of North Dakota Company person of the Year in 2003, and again in 2017.
