WASHINGTON – The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) recognizes the Office of Surety Guarantees award winners for their continued work to help small contracting businesses acquire surety bonds.
Three SBA surety bond partners were selected to receive awards based on their participation, activity, claims and recovery, and their commitment to helping small businesses obtain contracts with both government and private sector entities.
Crum & Forster was recognized as Surety of the Year. The Surety Place and Kenneth Turner of KOG International, Inc. were honored as Surety Agency of the Year and Surety Agent of the Year, respectively.
“The success of the Surety Bond Guarantee (SBG) Program is a direct result of our great relationship with the surety industry. The awards are an important way to recognize and thank our partners for helping small and emerging businesses requiring surety credit in the marketplace,” said Peter C. Gibbs, Director for the Office of Surety Guarantees.
