AHERN Insurance Brokerage is honored to have received the STAG ONE™ Agency designation from our partner carrier, The Hartford.

AHERN’s own Summer Gorsica, AHERN Vice President, was recently selected to throw out the first pitch at a San Diego Padres game! The prestigious honor of throwing out the first pitch was a result of Summer and AHERN being designated as a STAG ONE™ Elite Insurance Agency by The Hartford.

STAG ONE™ is an exclusive Small Commercial Rewards & Recognition program designed by The Hartford to recognize their most highly-partnered Small Commercial agents.  Being designated as a STAG ONE™ agency goes beyond production numbers; it’s about Hartford’s strongest partnerships, trust, and development of long-term mutual beneficial initiatives.

Summer has been pivotal in building the AHERN/Hartford relationship and is a big reason for AHERN earning the prestigious STAG ONE™ designation. Summer represents what STAG ONE™ is about – a strong representative for The Hartford and the local insurance industry, and was therefore nominated and selected to throw out the first pitch at The Hartford’s STAG ONE™ Suite Night event. And…. she threw a perfect pitch!! Congratulations, Summer!
