Online PR News – 20-August-2014 – McLean, VA – For 45 years, Business Insurance has been the leading Insurance journal in the country. ‘Top 40 Under 40’ is an annual, globally recognized accolade which acknowledges the 40 most accomplished insurance brokers under the age of 40. Nominees are selected based on a criterion of excellence, leadership, service, and expertise. All honorees are selected on a nationwide scale by a panel of Business Insurance editors. An award reception will be held for all recipients on October 14th in Atlanta.

As the Assistant Vice President of Commercial Lines at Sahouri Insurance & Financial, Mr. Hudson’s award recognizes him as a representative of the country’s Southern region. When asked about what ranking among America’s most prestigious insurance professionals meant to him: “To represent our region and to be recognized by the industry’s most prestigious insurance journal is an extremely humbling experience that I am truly grateful for. I would have never expected this.”

Mr. Hudson has been a licensed property and casualty agent in Washington D.C., Virginia, and Maryland for the last 10 years. Last month, he was named Northern Virginia Magazine’s ‘Top Financial Professional’ of the year in Risk Management. Allen is especially known for his role in developing Sahouri’s real estate project, the Community Underwriters Specialty Program (CUSP).

The first of its kind, CUSP was created on the basis that thousands of people were at a disadvantage due to a relative monopoly in the real estate insurance market. Cusp has been saving policy holders an average of 27% on their premiums since 2011.

Mr. Hudson expressed his gratitude to Business Insurance for selecting him: “I sincerely appreciate the professionals at Business Insurance who made this possible.” He has been working at Sahouri since October of 2010. Vice President of business operations, Michael Sahouri had the following to say in light of Mr. Hudson’s recognition: “Allen is most deserving of this award and we are honored to have him as a part of the Sahouri Insurance family."
