Agent Kyle Hoium of Melrose has earned the prestigious AFLIC award from American Family Insurance. He joins a select group of agents who distinguished themselves in 2014 through outstanding sales of life insurance products offered by the company’s subsidiary, American Family Life Insurance Company.

Hoium has been an agent for American Family since June 2012. He is a 2004 graduate of Osakis High School.

“This is a tremendous honor for Kyle but not surprising when you consider the emphasis he places on relationships,” said Mike Quesnel, district sales manager for the company. “He takes the time to listen and work with his customers to make sure they understand their insurance options and how each fits their unique needs.”
