Local insurance agent earns top honor

Bart Baker

Malibu resident Bart Baker, an agent for Farmers Insurance Group, has received the company’s top award to agents for “outstanding overall performance.” Baker joins a select group of fellow achievers as a member of the Presidents Council.

“Council selections are based on outstanding customer service, sale production in all insurance lines, overall professional competence and maintenance of the highest quality standards,” said Jim Westerman, Farmers’ senior vice president of sales.

Of the many district managers and agents serving Farmers’ customers in 29 states, just 139 individuals are named to the Presidents Council. The members will be honored at a conference at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York City.
