PIA CEO, Mike Becker, has resigned to accept a position outside the insurance industry, which will be announced separately at a later date. He will continue as PIA’s CEO for an extended interim period to ensure a smooth transition. The PIA Board has formed a search committee, led by PIA Immediate Past President Gerald Hemphill, to identify a successor. 

“Mike has significantly raised PIA’s value by greatly expanding product offerings and services to benefit our members. He has also expanded our association’s reach and built new relationships with carriers and technology companies,” said PIA National President Rich Savino. “He is a real visionary—the innovation he brought to our organization will be felt for years to come.” 

In 2023, Becker created the PIA Technology Council, technology leaders working with PIA to provide ideas, input, and insights on technology to agents. He has championed the PIA Partnership, the association’s carrier council. His outreach to large, multi-state mega agencies led to a change in PIA membership that embraces a broader swath of independent agencies being part of PIA. 

“Our role is to provide tools and resources to help our independent agent members take on the daily challenges and become more successful and more profitable,” said Becker. “I will always believe in the independent insurance agency distribution channel and all the good, honest, hardworking people who are PIA. It is with the greatest sense of affection for PIA and all the wonderful people who have come to be friends that I embark on a new chapter in my career.” 

Founded in 1931, PIA is a national trade association that represents member insurance agents and their employees who sell and service all kinds of insurance but specialize in coverage of automobiles, homes and businesses. PIA’s web address www.pianational.org
