PINELLAS PARK, Fla.—Transitions Optical, Inc. has named three finalists for the second annual Transitions Vision Benefits Broker of the Year Award—Anya Simpson of Benefit Plans, Inc., Steve Farmer of Wallace, Welch & Willingham and Patrick Tibbs of Everence Financial Advisors.
Selected for their commitment to communicating the value of vision benefits to human resource customers and employees, the three finalists will share their insights regarding vision promotion in a presentation entitled “Managed Vision Care 360: Bringing Your Vision Health Promotion Strategy Full Circle” at the fifth annual managed vision care track at Transitions Academy in Orlando in January. In addition, last year’s winner, Patsy Akridge of Akridge Insurance, will discuss her experience as the first Vision Benefits Broker of the Year during the managed vision care track. Transitions will then announce this year’s winner during an awards presentation at the event on Jan. 31.
Self-nominated or nominated by a vision plan provider, nominees were judged on their commitment to three aspects of promotion and education—1) positioning vision benefits as an integral part of the overall health benefits offering, 2) highlighting the vision wear elements of vision coverage to customers and recommending vision plans that include photochromic lenses, and 3) educating about the importance of quality eyecare and eyewear.
All three finalists will receive a trip for two to Transitions Academy and prizes and office items for themselves and their staff. The winner will receive a staff celebration, a trip for two to Transitions Championship at the Innisbrook Resort and Golf Club to be held March 2012 in Florida and use of the official Transitions Vision Benefits Broker of the Year logo.
