WASHINGTON —  Nicholas W. Ruickoldt of the The Russell Agency, LLC, of Southport, Connecticut, has been named the 2015 PIA National Young Insurance Professional of the Year. The award was presented March 27, 2015, by the National Association of Professional Insurance Agents (PIA) and was sponsored by The Rough Notes Company.

"The 2015 PIA National Young Insurance Professional of the Year is truly an outstanding young agent,” said PIA National Secretary/Assistant Treasurer Tim Russell.

“I know, because he works for me.”

“Nick started with my agency as a college intern,” Russell said. “I’ve had the pleasure of watching his growth from intern to young leader in our industry. Nick’s energy is boundless, his enthusiasm is infectious, his professionalism is exemplary and his commitment to being the best possible young Professional Insurance Agent is total.”

This past March, he began his third term as president of the Connecticut Young Insurance Professionals. Nick worked with the Connecticut Congressional delegation to secure passage of the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act, helping to make flood insurance more affordable for his clients.

Sponsored for the tenth year in a row by The Rough Notes Company, it was presented during a gala luncheon ceremony on March 27, 2015, in Arlington, Virginia, held during the national PIA meetings, which followed the 2015 PIA Federal Legislative Summit.
