MONTEREY, Calif., March 12, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Capital Insurance Group® (CIG) has named Oxnard-based Jones & Maulding Insurance Agency as the 2013 Ventura Agency of the Year. The company has earned the award for the second consecutive year due to its high performance and large overall sales growth. Additional criteria for the award emphasize a commitment to maintaining exceptional business and client relationships.
Founded in 1952 by Robert Matthews, the company was purchased by Southern California native Tim Jones in 1972. In 1978, Dave Maulding joined as a partner. The firm grew steadily from three to 16 employees; four of which have been with the company for more than 20 years. The agency has represented CIG since 1983. Tim and Dave have been active participants on the CIG Agency Council, with Tim serving multiple terms as head of the Council.
"When Jones & Maulding is recognized by a company for excellence in performance and partnership, is it extremely gratifying — this is the highest honor we could receive; and to me personally, to win this award two years in a row is extremely meaningful," said Tim Jones, Principal of Jones & Maulding. "This is the ultimate recognition for all our hard work."
Each year, the CIG Agency of the Year award recognizes businesses with outstanding performance and strong customer service practices. Top-performers are nominated by CIG Regional Management for evaluation; and the final selection is made by an executive committee.

"Our long-time partnership has been rewarding for both of our companies as well as providing clients with the highest quality of products and service."
"Over the past 31 years, both CIG and Jones & Maulding have seen significant growth and change, but maintained the same commitment to quality and service," said Peter Cazzolla, President and CEO of Capital Insurance Group.
