Will Infantine received the Distinguished Service Award, presented to him by the New Hampshire Association of Insurance Agents (NHAIA), the state’s premier association of insurance agents.

This rare award is the highest award given and presented to individuals who exhibit an exemplary commitment to the insurance industry, their community, and family. Infantine is only the tenth recipient of this award in its 18-year history.

The award was presented by Leo Paquin, chairman of the board of the NHAIA, at the Association’s 122nd Annual Convention, held at the AC Hotel in Portsmouth. Infantine is New Hampshire’s national director to the Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of America (IIABA) Board and has also served as chairman of the Board of Directors of the NHAIA.

Infantine has been a part of the independent agency system for 30 years and is managing director for Optisure Risk Partners based in Manchester. He has served his community as an eight-term NH Legislator introducing bills that led to guardrails being installed on Routes 93 and 293 around Manchester to eliminate crashes that had killed several citizens. He also introduced a bill that led to Michelle’s Law, which provided students with healthcare if they were injured or ill and no longer able to attend school. That federal bill was signed by President Bush. He currently serves as Chair of the House Labor Committee.  He also serves on the Executive Board of the NH Home Builders Association, is Vice Chair of the NH Electrician’s Board, and is a Governor’s Council Appointee to the Housing Stability Commission.
