Natalia Dinets honored with 2018 award for commitment to company culture and values.

HORSHAM, Pa. – November 14, 2018 – The Penn Mutual Life Insurance Company (Penn Mutual) is pleased to announce that Natalia Dinets, senior business transformation specialist at Penn Mutual, is the recipient of the 2018 Penn Mutual Award.

This prestigious award is presented annually to one full-time home office associate who has at least three years of service with the company. The Penn Mutual Award is the highest recognition that an associate can receive, and honors a team member who consistently emulates the company’s culture and values. 

Dinets began her career with Penn Mutual in 2008 and has quickly progressed in her role after starting as a business analyst. Dinets’s colleagues nominated her for exemplifying Penn Mutual in every interaction, for being “a steward of transformational change, for always respecting values and diverse opinions, and for her integrity to protect Penn Mutual’s legacy.”

Her outstanding performance makes her a valued associate, and Eileen McDonnell, chairman and CEO at Penn Mutual, compliments Dinets’ dedication to living the Penn Mutual values. McDonnell says, “Natalia is a woman of great integrity and serves as a role model for all. Like those winners before her, she is an example of the very best of Penn Mutual, and is respected by her peers for her professionalism, positive attitude and collaborative style. She is truly deserving of this honor and I am pleased to present her with the Penn Mutual Award.”  

In addition to a cash award, Penn Mutual donated $10,000 on behalf of Dinets to the charity of her choice, the Organization for Autism Research.
