SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — CNA National (CNAN) announced this week that claims specialist Marty Bourgeois was selected as the recipient of the 2016 CNA Chairman’s Award. According to the company, Bourgeois was selected because he demonstrated all five of the company's corporate “winning behaviors,” which include accountability, collaboration, continuous learning, external focus and innovation.

“Marty is a pillar of the CNAN community,” said Mike Bacosa, senior claims manager. “He was an obvious choice to nominate for this award, and we are thrilled that he was chosen.”

Bourgeois began his career with CNA National as a claims specialist in 1990. He is now frequently called upon to work with automobile dealerships and repair shops to resolve unusual or disputed claims.

“I am honored to be selected for the Chairman’s Award,” Bourgeois said. “This is not something that was on my radar. The award is not just about me; it represents all of my incredible co-workers at CNAN. I say thank you to each and every one.”

The CNA Chairman's Award is the company's highest honor, and is awarded to only a couple dozen employees each year out of a pool of 7,000. Prior Chairman's Award winners include Lil Berry in 2015, Jason Wilhite in 2014, Brent Watkins in 2013, Diana Grimes in 2012, and Spencer Lyman in 2010.
