Albuquerque, NM –  (July 2, 2019) – Southwest Reinsure, Inc. (SouthwestRe) is pleased to announce that the Company has won the 2019 Dealers’ Choice Gold Award for Service Contract Reinsurance. This is the third year in a row that SouthwestRe has been chosen for this prestigious award.

Now in its 15th year, the Dealers’ Choice awards are determined by a survey sent to readers of Auto Dealer Today, and F&I and Showroom magazine. Voting was open solely to dealers and dealership personnel, who completed a 35-category online survey.

“We are so grateful to everyone who voted to recognize SouthwestRe’s reinsurance know-how,” said Kristen Gruber, Executive Vice President of SouthwestRe. “I’d like to give a special shout-out to everyone in our Reinsurance Accounting and Client Services departments, who work incredibly hard to provide all of our clients with industry-leading reinsurance expertise and personalized service. I may be a little bit biased, but in my opinion they’re the best of the best!”

“Although this is the third Dealers’ Choice Award we have received, I can’t help but feel that we are just getting started,” said Scott Craigmile, Senior Vice President of Sales & Marketing for SouthwestRe. “Now that we are part of iA Financial Group, the positive momentum pulsing throughout the entire SouthwestRe organization is making a huge impact on our company and clients. Mark my words, SouthwestRe will be a thing to behold in the years ahead, so watch this space.”
