Dimond Bros. honors Coughlin

CHERRY — At the recent Dimond Bros. Insurance annual awards banquet, Jim Coughlin of the Cherry office was named Producer of the Year for his outstanding performance in 2013.

The award recognized Coughlin from more than 35 Dimond Bros. locations and 75 producers across all of Illinois. The award is given to the producer who exemplifies an insurance agent’s best traits and professionalism.

Coughlin joined Dimond Bros. in 2013 with the merger of his firm, CBW-Inc., with five locations in Cherry, Ladd, Amboy, Kinsman and Ottawa. Recently, Coughlin was named vice president of retirement services for all of Dimond Bros., founded in 1867.
