The Zebra in the Wild series celebrates award wins, speaking engagements and thought leadership from our company and our talented employees (aka Zeebs). The Zebra's influence as a brand and expertise in insurance extends nationally on some pretty big stages and publications.
Our public relations team is always on the prowl to find new opportunities that recognize our herd and what they’ve accomplished. We love to show off the talent and innovation of The Zebra's team, and, the good news is, we're not the only ones that recognize it. The first quarter of 2022 was a big one for our fellow Zeebs out "in the wild." Take a look at some of our most exciting award wins, news coverage, and speaking engagements so far this year!
