HNI Risk Advisors employee receives award

West Bend Mutual Insurance Company recently presented its Spirit of the Silver Lining Award to Chad Tisonik, Wisconsin president of HNI Risk Advisors, Milwaukee. The award honors West Bend agents and the nonprofit organizations they support for their dedication to delivering a silver lining to those in need.

Tisonik was presented the Spirit of the Silver Lining Award for his involvement with the Hope Center, HNI’s exclusive local charity. The mission of the Hope Center is to minimize the poverty risk factors by providing clothing, food, and furniture to those in need. HNI employees organize food and clothing drives throughout the year. HNI also matches employee donations to the Hope Center up to $200 per employee per year. In 2017, an estimated $8,000 was donated to the Hope Center. Additionally, as part of the Spirit of the Silver Lining Award, West Bend donated a $10,000 grant to the organization.

“We are thrilled to bring recognition to Hope Center and grateful to receive this generous grant from West Bend,” Tisonik said. “This grant will allow us to further support Hope Center and relieve homelessness in Southeastern Wisconsin.”

“At West Bend, we have a proud tradition of giving back to the communities in which we do business,” said Kevin Steiner, president and CEO of West Bend. “The Spirit of the Silver Lining Award is a unique program that allows us to express our gratitude to our agent partners on whom we rely to identify the causes that matter most in our communities.”
