"The award is a result of the efforts of all at Pioneer," Pioneer Insurance President and CEO David Coyukiat said. Lorenzo Chan, President and CEO of Pioneer Life, sees the award as an external affirmation of the team's efforts to build one Pioneer, a company with a heart that offers several solutions to an array of needs. "It can be such a pleasing recognition yet we must look upon these awards as both an acknowledgement of what has been done as well as the many challenges that still remain to be conquered," he stressed. Pioneer Shared Services COO Candy Blaylock joined the two CEOs in thanking all stakeholders for making these awards possible.
