Our ability to grow profitably is driven by our diverse group of talented Allstate associates across the country. We increased the number of Allstate Agency Owners by 513 in 2006 further expanding our local presence to serve customers. Our non-bonus eligible employees were rewarded with a profit sharing match of $1.50 for every $1.00 they contributed to the Allstate Profit Sharing Fund. We are pleased to have Jim Hohmann join us as CEO of Allstate Financial replacing Casey Sylla, whose 12 years of service has made us a stronger company, said Wilson.
