Pasadena, California – Bolton & Company, one of the nation’s largest privately-owned insurance brokers, has been named the Los Angeles Business Journal’s 2016 Corporate Partner of the Year.
The announcement was made during the Los Angeles Business Journal’s annual Nonprofit & Corporate Citizenship Awards ceremony. This program recognizes and honors the standout philanthropic efforts of nonprofit professionals, organizations and corporate citizens.
There were more than 100 organizations nominated for several distinct award categories, and hundreds of representatives from LA’s largest nonprofit and for-profit companies were in attendance during the event.
Bolton President and Chief Executive Officer Steve Brockmeyer said the honor confirms a longstanding commitment to nonprofits that stems from the individual dedication of the firm’s employees.
“It’s really amazing to accept this award on behalf of our incredible staff who do so much to support such wonderful nonprofit organizations,” said Brockmeyer. “Corporate giving has long been woven into the Bolton & Company story, and our employees are reinforcing this legacy of giving back through their active involvement in all of our philanthropic and charitable efforts.”
Bolton was recognized for its impact on multiple nonprofit organizations through financial contributions, fundraising efforts and non-financial contributions. Last year, through its philanthropic arm called The Bolton Foundation, the firm awarded $72,000 in grants to 18 nonprofits.
Matt Toledo, Los Angeles Business Journal Publisher and Chief Executive Officer, points to the program as a way to honor those who demonstrate outstanding dedication to nonprofit causes.
“Tapping the resources of the corporate world to strategically match social, community and public needs creates immense benefits for all parties,” Toledo said. “And that is something we can’t afford to lose.”
