NEW YORK, Aug. 15, 2022 – Assurant, Inc. (NYSE: AIZ), a global provider of lifestyle and housing solutions that support, protect, and connect major consumer purchases like automobiles, today announced that Assurant has won four 2022 Dealers’ Choice Awards. These latest accolades celebrate the company’s comprehensive training and development programs and increase the total number of awards earned by Assurant companies to 39 Dealers’ Choice Awards since first participating in 2014. 

Auto Dealer Today, F&I and Showroom, and Agent Entrepreneur readers were asked to manually enter their provider’s company name in an online vote, and score their provider on quality, value, customer service, and whether they would recommend them to another dealer.                                      

“This momentum is driven by the passion and dedication of the teams who help our clients achieve their goals through our best-in-class training programs,” said Jeff Strickland, Senior Vice President, Assurant Dealer Services & Strategic Accounts. “Looking ahead, we’re excited about our world-class training and innovation, which will continue to help our dealers successfully evolve in the changing automotive landscape.”  

Assurant won awards in the following categories:

In 2020, Assurant acquired American Financial & Automotive Services, combining both company’s dealership training curriculum into the new Automotive Training Academy, by Assurant – a comprehensive training program that includes F&I, Sales, Service, Leadership, Compliance, Digital Retailing training and more. Dealership employees can participate in award-winning courses in-person at the Automotive Training Academy classrooms in Chicago or Houston, in the dealership or online via the Assurant Virtual learning Platform.
