We are thrilled to announce Ferri Dawson Insurance Group won Best Insurance Agent in Westmoreland County in the 2023 TribLIVE Best of the Best Awards.  Each year the TribLIVE grants these official community choice awards by allowing the community to submit nominations to identify the top 5 businesses in each category – which appear on the ballot.  Readers then vote from these finalists to name the top 3 in each category – including the winner.

The Best of the Best Awards celebrate and recognize the best the community has to offer.  This is an incredible achievement, as over 65,000 nominations were counted in the initial round of the Westmoreland regional contest.  By contest-end, participants submitted over 286,000 votes. 

Winning or placing among the top two finalists in the TribLIVE Best of the Best Community Choice Awards is a prestigious achievement that reflects a company’s excellence in its respective industry. 

Licensed agent, Taylor Gallagher, stated “As a lifelong Greensburg resident, voting in the Best of the Best awards is something I always look forward to participating in.  It’s a wonderful opportunity to support your favorite local businesses.  Voting meant a great deal more to me this year, particularly because FDIG won or placed in the top three since the inception of the contest.  When you work for a driven, dedicated, and passionate employer, your heart is tied to contests like Best of the Best.  As my first year as a licensed agent, I was driven to work hard to meet the standard necessary to earn to nomination for the award.  Earning Best Insurance Agency in Westmoreland, and placing top three in Allegheny East, proved that the authentic effort advocating for clients is working.  We always give our very best to our clients and stive to ensure they have a positive experience working with the team at FDIG.”
