Pasadena, California – The Pasadena Chamber of Commerce has named Bolton & Company, one of the nation’s largest privately-owned insurance brokers, Corporate Citizen of the Year in recognition of its exemplary service to the community.

The firm was honored for its longstanding commitment to excellent customer service, its role as an employer and contributor to the local economy, and its philanthropic and charitable efforts. The award was presented during the Pasadena Chamber of Commerce Inaugural Gala.

“Bolton & Company is a significant employer and a tremendous asset to our local economy, as well as being very supportive of nonprofits and some of our neediest citizens in the Pasadena area,” said Pasadena Chamber President and CEO Paul Little. “The Pasadena Chamber is proud to count Bolton & Company as a member and honored to recognize the company as Corporate Citizen of the Year for 2016.”

Bolton earned the award in the large business category, and it received additional recognition for the accolade from the City of Pasadena, County of Los Angeles, California State Senate, California State Assembly and Congresswoman Judy Chu. The Pasadena Tournament of Roses was also recognized for the distinction in the small business category.

Bolton & Company Chief Operating Officer Mike Morey said the award speaks to the strength of the firm’s staff and the continued support of the local community.

“Earning this distinction is exciting for everyone at Bolton & Company,” said Morey. “It really highlights the excellent work of our employees and the continued support from our local partners, especially the City of Pasadena, Pasadena Chamber of Commerce and the Pasadena Community Foundation. They have all been instrumental in our success, and they enabled us to turn our dream of creating our own nonprofit foundation into a reality.”

The award also recognized Bolton & Company’s philanthropic arm, The Bolton Foundation, which has raised more than $200,000 since its launch in 2014 in support of nonprofits that serve in the areas of community development, education, youth services and multiculturalism.
