Agent Mark Hop of Holland, Michigan was awarded the Farm Bureau Insurance Distinguished Sales Award (DSA) for outstanding sales and service across 2022 at the Farm Bureau Insurance Multi-Line Marketing Convention on February 24th of 2023 in Grand Rapids, Michigan. This is Hop’s sixth consecutive year capturing the statewide honor and ninth overall. Hop previously brought home the award for the years of 2006, 2008, 2009, 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, and 2021. Mark credited his team at the Hop Insurance Agency for this accomplishment and noted the efforts of his son, agent Jonathan Hop, who has taken on additional responsibility in helping lead the agency into the future.

The DSA is the top sales honor given each year and represents the highest performance achievement for an individual in the company. It is presented to one statewide winner for exceptional personal accomplishments and contribution to the success of the Farm Bureau Insurance Companies.

Over the past year, Hop has finished first in Life Commissions, Life Volume, and Life Policies while placing second in Property/Casualty policies. He also earned the number one position in the Life Elite Club for the eighth year in a row. Farm Bureau Insurance of Michigan CEO, Don Simon, noted, “The Hop Agency generates tremendous loyalty among those that come to them for protection. It’s truly a credit to the time and effort they put into helping everyone they work with.”

Simon said, “Mark is the first agent to achieve the Double Platinum level of the prestigious Praesidium Award. He’s a member of the Director’s Cup team, Circle of Champions, Executive Club, Legacy Club, Life Elite Club, Life Centennial Club, Commercial Century Club, Partners in Growth, and Presidents Council. What an incredible year.”
