Harleysville Insurance Named to Ward’s Top 50

August 27, 2003

Pennsylvania’s Harleysville Insurance announced that the company has been named to the Ward’s 50, a benchmark group of the top-performing insurance companies in the nation, for the fifth year in a row.

“We are proud once again to achieve this distinction,” commented Walter R. Bateman, Harleysville’s chairman and CEO. “We realize, however, that the real driver of our success is our employees. As a result of their dedication and hard work, we have been able to deliver long-term results that place us among a very well-respected group of industry competitors.”

Ward Group, a Cincinnati-based management consulting firm specializing in the insurance industry, completes an in-depth analysis of the property/casualty insurance industry each year. The objectives of the analysis are to recognize the 50 companies that have excelled at balancing financial safety, consistency and performance over the past five years (1998-2002), and then to benchmark their performance with the industry overall.
