Merchants Insurance Group is pleased to announce that the Lawley Dunkirk office has qualified for membership in the Merchants Insurance Group President’s Club.

Lawley’s Dunkirk branch has been serving Western New York since 1983 and has been partnered with Merchants since 1994. This is the agency’s tenth year qualifying for membership, and the agency’s sixth year in a row. The 2017 President’s Club meeting took place in late April at Guanacaste, Costa Rica.

“We are honored to be consistently recognized by Merchants Insurance Group as a member of this prestigious Club. Every day, we work hard to provide the best options for our clients so by continuing our long-standing relationship with excellent partners like Merchants, we can stand behind what we offer them,” said Wally Gotowka, Lawley’s Dunkirk branch Partner.

The Merchants Insurance Group President’s Club is composed of an elite group of independent insurance agents who have demonstrated a commitment to Merchants and that have achieved excellence in the insurance industry. In its 18th year, the 2017 President’s Club has 24 members.
