    This year the SAAGNY family lost an industry legend, SAAGNY Past President, John J. Pagano. John’s personality might have only have been matched by his personal style and flair.  John was a rock star in the industry and a person that was loved by everyone. The SAAGNY Past Presidents as a tribute to this great man had decided that the SAAGNY Multi-Line Rep of the Year Award will be renamed the John J. Pagano Multi-Line Rep of the Year Award in honor of John’s legacy of greatness, warmth, humanity, and professionalism to everyone including clients and competitors.

    SAAGNY members were treated to a fantastic day at Peerless Umbrella.  Peerless Umbrella, located in Newark, NJ, was established in 1927 and is third generation family owned.  If you were at Peerless today you would know that when the company was established it did NOT sell umbrellas - It sold parachutes!  After the war, they moved into umbrellas.  The day included a thorough tour by the owner, Gene Moscowitz, a compelling educational presentation by Peter Hiatrides, and with the help of the Peerless staff each of us were able to decorate our own umbrella.  Thank you Peerless!
