January 19, 2004

The Professional Insurance Agents of New York State Inc. announced that Faina Aynbinder will receive its Bernard I. Kozel Memorial Scholarship award and Nicole DeVito will receive its Arthur I. Moll Memorial Scholarship award.

The awards will be presented at the PIANY’s Metropolitan Regional Awareness Program, Jan. 22, 2004, at the New York Marriott in Brooklyn.

Aynbinder is the president of Prestige Insurance Broker Corp., which she started in March 2002, at the same time that she passed the New York State Insurance Broker test, becoming a licensed insurance broker. PIANY presents the award, which honors Bernard I. Kozel, a long-time member of the insurance profession, to a member who is a full-time insurance professional with less than five years of experience in the industry.

DeVito is an assistant account executive at the Seigerman-Mulvey Co. Inc. in East Setauket, N.Y. PIANY presents the award, which honors Arthur I. Moll, past president of both PIANY and PIA National, to a PIANY member who is a full-time insurance professional with less than five years of experience in the insurance industry.

Aynbinder will receive tuition for two courses conducted by PIANY toward the Certified Insurance Service Representative (CISR)designation. “Faina’s extraordinary work for her customers is a positive reflection of the Prestige Insurance Broker and of the independent insurance agent field,” commented PIANY past President Shelly Kozel, Bernard I. Kozel’s son and president of Lezok Ltd.

DeVito will also receive tuition for two courses conducted by PIANY toward the CISR designation. “Nicole has shown great dedication to our agency and our customers,” stated Barry Seigerman, principal of Seigerman-Mulvey Co. “She is a determined individual, who continuously strives to increase her knowledge of the insurance industry.”

PIANY President T.J. Derella, CPIA, noted that “One of the easiest ways for an independent insurance agent to stay on the cutting edge of all the insurance products and sources available to their customers is by earning a CISR designation.”
