TORRANCE, Calif. – Oct. 17, 2014 – Keenan, the largest privately held insurance brokerage and consulting firm in California, received an Internet marketing award at this year’s IMPACT14 conference in Las Vegas, sponsored by the Internet Marketing Association (IMA). The firm was an IMPACT14 Award winner for Best Use of Email for Internal Communications.

The messaging is designed to welcome and educate new company associates through a variety of content. Topics have included managing teams, the Keenan strategic positioning statement (or “elevator speech”), procedures and references for using social media, navigating the company intranet and corporate values.

“Internet marketing is integral to how we communicate with our clients and employees on a daily basis, and Keenan is proud to be recognized for our leadership in this area,” said Charlotte Doepker, Keenan Vice President for Digital Marketing. “We are committed to the ongoing education and engagement of our employees, and an effective internal communications strategy is just one way that we accomplish this goal.”
