State Auto Insurance recently named Joe Padon, an agent for Mountain West Insurance and Financial, a “PaceSetter” agent.

“We were very selective in choosing our PaceSetter agents who come from only our very top agencies,” State Auto Chairman and CEO Robert Restrepo said in a news release. “This group is truly our ‘cream of the crop’ and we’re proud to have members of Padon’s caliber in the group, representing State Auto in Colorado.”

According to the release, the company will work with its PaceSetter agents to form a “true sales alliance” and will provide assistance and feedback as necessary.

“The program was designed to make a good thing even better, and that’s what we hope to accomplish during the program period,” Restrepo said.

Mountain West is located at 100 E. Victory Way and can be reached at 824-8185.
