Less than two years after launch, Wells Media’s newest publication for the property/casualty insurance industry, Carrier Management, is making its mark in the publishing world, garnering three honors at last week’s 2014 Eddie and Ozzie Awards.
The awards are given annually by media company Folio to honor the best design and editorial work in the magazine and publishing industry.
Wells Media Group’s Vice President of Content attended Thursday’s awards breakfast where Carrier Management nabbed the top prize in the editorial category, “B-to-B Series of Articles: General Interest,” for the series, “Making P/C Operations Work: From Calm Multitaskers to Maniacs with a Passion,” published in the February 2014 edition.
The article series by Senior Editor Susanne Sclafane profiled executives who held the title chief operating officer or chief operations officer at RLI, QBE, Farmers, Markel Corp., and Endurance Specialty Holdings during the first quarter of 2014, and also provided the views of executive recruiters on what it takes to be a P/C insurance carrier COO.
In addition to winning that “Eddie,” Carrier Management received an honorable mention in the new magazine “Ozzie” design category, “B-to-B: Design, New Magazine,” and honorable mention in a second “Eddie” category, “B-to-B Full Issue: Banking/ Business/ Finance. Both honors were for the Winter 2014 edition.
Wells Media’s Insurance Journal also took home another winning prize in the “Eddie” category B-to-B Single Article: Banking / Business/ Finance for the article “E&O Dangers for Agents” by Editor-in-Chief Andrea Wells in the November 2013 edition of IJ.
According to Folio, more than 230 awards were handed out across the entire publishing spectrum including B2B, consumer and association publishers last week.
In total, Wells Media made four entries and all four were finalists in their categories.
