        Lee, Hill & Johnston Insurors was recognized recently as the second-highest agency in premium volume growth among 369 Auto-Owners insurance agencies in Georgia. The Statesboro-based agency was honored at a recent meeting of regional associates.
        "Our goal is to provide exceptional service for our policy holders. This award illustrates our commitment to the folks we serve and I am extremely proud of our team members' dedication and hard work," said John Lee, a managing partner with Pratt Hill for the past three decades.
        Hill echoed Lee's comments, "This is an honor shared by everyone on our staff. Auto-Owners is among the nation's leading insurors and we are proud to offer their wide array of insurance products."
        In making the announcement, Jamey Whisnant, regional vice president of Auto-Owners, said, "We are completely committed to the independent agency system. Our profitable growth is dependent on agencies like Lee, Hill & Johnston.  While we have had success in the past, we also understand that we need to continue to improve our products and services we provide to you and your policyholders."
        Founded in 1963 by the late Joe Johnston, the local independent agency has represented Auto-Owners since 1997.
        Both Lee and Hill graduated from Georgia Southern University and have been active in many civic and professional activities over the years.
        Auto-Owners has received the J.D. Power and Associates award for "Highest in Customer Satisfaction with the Auto Insurance Claims Experience," five years in a row. The company is headquartered in Lansing, MI.
