IUCAB - George Hayward Award

The IUCAB International Agent of the Year "George Hayward Award" was created by the Executive Committee of IUCAB following the passing away in May 2009 of Mr. George Hayward, the first elected US Vice President of IUCAB.

Mr. Hayward was the founder of United Sales Associates, an agency business firm in the safety/industrial market place which he started in 1982, based in Cincinnati, Ohio, USA. He was the recipient of dozens of Awards and recognition for outstanding service by the many associations in which he participated. He gave much of his heart, time and friendship to everyone in our profession and was one of the most involved and engaged agents, doing so selflessly.
