  • "I joined in 1979 on a friend's recommendation, having spent a few months at another company. I didn't know much about the insurance industry, but the product portfolio at The Principal looked like a good match with the prospects I hoped to turn into clients. What I didn't know at the time, but became apparent over the next 29 years, was how much the backup support provided by The Principal would factor in to my success. To deliver innovative ideas and superb service to my clients, I have relied on local and home office personnel to give me that critical edge." -- Donna Patton*
