The Valley Center Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce its 2015 Business of the Year. Pauma/Valley Insurance Agency, Inc. (PVI) has been selected as the recipient of this prestigious award.
PVI has been a well-respected fixture in the Valley Center community since its inception in 1978 by Barni Strausbaugh. From the beginning, Barni stressed that PVI is much more than just selling insurance; it is about building and maintaining relationships with the community and its members. These solid relationships have been built over the past thirty-eight years based on mutual trust and respect, and excellent service. In 2007, Barni’s son, Brandon, joined PVI following in his father’s footsteps. Brandon has now assumed the reins of Manager, continuing the Strausbaugh legacy. Brandon, speaking on behalf of PVI, stated he is very honored for his family and his team to receive this award.
PVI’s commitment to the community has been exemplified over the years through its support of numerous business and charity events, sponsorship of local sports teams and involvement in service groups such as the Valley Center Chamber of Commerce, Valley Center Rotary and Valley Center Community Aid Group.
In addition to being a valuable community asset, PVI strives continually to be of evermore value to its clients. They accomplish this goal by holding fast to the traditional, strong values and work ethic that have contributed to their success, and at the same time seeking and embracing innovative ways and new opportunities to better serve their clients. Being comprised of independent insurance agents, PVI works for You, instead of an insurance company, thus ensuring the best custom-designed insurance portfolio to meet the individual client’s needs, while fulfilling their PVI Pledge: To do everything they can to make your live Safer, Simpler and more Secure.
In order to bring even more value and options to their clients, Brandon and his team of professionals have continually pursued and accomplished even higher levels of training, certifications and programs. These ongoing efforts have resulted in numerous recognitions, commendations and awards, including PVI recently receiving the Mercury Insurance Service of Excellence Award and Brandon earning his CPCU (Chartered Property Casualty Underwriter) designation.
Although PVI is much more than facts and figures, the importance of their numbers should not be underestimated. PVI is licensed in 19 states, affiliated with 49 insurance carriers and handles almost 70 types of insurance, from ATVs to Worker’s Comp, and most things in between.
Although PVI continually pursues, and has excelled at, expanding and growing its business (both in services and in scope) in their quest to better serve their clients, PVI will never lose touch with its home-town roots and its small-town feel. Exactly what you’d want and expect from a business that was born and grew up in Valley Center.
