WALNUT CREEK, CA, Jan 30, 2012 (MARKETWIRE via COMTEX) –
The San Francisco Bay Area Agency, a local office of the MassMutual
Financial Group, today announced that Tony Delumen, 34, and an
eighth-year agent, has qualified for the prestigious MassMutual
Chairman’s Club for 2012, an honor bestowed to the top 10 career
agents annually, from among 5300 agents around the US.
The Chairman’s Club recipients are the top 10 annual producers of the
entire MassMutual pool of more than 5300 agents and are considered
the pinnacle of MassMutual’s sales force. The honor recognizes the
individuals who have achieved the highest levels of all-around sales
and performance during the previous year.
“This is an incredible distinction for Tony, who has been an
outstanding member of our team since he joined the Agency,” said
Robert Fakhimi, General Agent of the San Francisco Bay Area Insurance
Agency. “He is continually attaining the highest levels of
achievement in the company by delivering extraordinary service to his
clients. This latest honor is a testament to Tony’s diligence, hard
work and supreme skills in the field.”
Other achievements by Delumen include both the title of 2009 Top
Premium Producer and Top Annuity Producer over the more than 5000
MassMutual career agents in the company’s 84 national offices. He
also earned the prestigious Freshman 5 award for his performance
during his first year as an agent, given to only five MassMutual
first-year agents nationally each year. Plus he was named Agent of
the Year four years in a row in the local office.
Delumen’s latest award continues the top achievements of the overall
SF Bay Area Insurance Agency. In the last seven years, this firm,
with Fakhimi as general agent, has developed six Freshman 5 award
honorees. In addition, the Agency has been honored with the
MassMutual Chairman’s Trophy for performance eight times in the last
nine years. The award is a reflection of an agency’s accomplishments
in revenue growth, recruitment and productivity.
