LOS ANGELES, May 17, 2012 — Anthony A. Saccaro, ChFC, president of Providence Financial & Insurance Services, Inc. (http://providencefinancialinc.com), received the top advisor of the year honor at the Advisors’ Academy Top Advisors Awards Gala at the Ocean Reef Club in Key Largo, Florida on May 8.
The Advisors’ Academy is the financial advisor industry’s premier mentoring program offering one-on-one mentoring and unlimited and ongoing practice management support, with nearly 200 members in the United States. It was founded by CEO David Scranton, ChFC, one of America’s most respected and successful financial advisors, CEO of Scranton Financial Group, and author of “Financial Insanity.”
The top honors in the “Highest Percent Business Growth Year Over Year” category were awarded solely on personal performance improvements and not on overall production. There were five runners-up, each of whom had at least 33% business growth in 2011 compared to 2010. Saccaro was awarded first place for achieving 175% business growth for Providence Financial & Insurance Services, a firm in Woodland Hills, California, specializing in conservative investment and retirement planning.
Presenting Saccaro the award, Scranton said, “Anthony’s practice has grown by leaps and bounds, in large part because he’s a man of very high moral and ethical fiber. Anthony is a student of the financial markets and is a top-notch expert in income-generating non-stock market strategies. His staff is excellent and provides an extremely high level of client service. I know many advisors in the L.A. area and Anthony stands head and shoulders above all of them.”
Saccaro expressed his gratitude to Scranton and the Advisors’ Academy for their invaluable mentorship and to his staff for “their consistently dedicated work in service to our clients. Winning this award is both a blessing and an inspiration to better ourselves, go above and beyond and always keep striving to exceed our clients’ expectations, each of whom we highly value and appreciate.”
