NAPA, Calif. — F&I products provider AUL Corp. has been honored by the North Bay Business Journal’s Best Places to Work competition for the sixth consecutive year, the company announced. The competition recognizes those Northern San Francisco Bay Area companies that excel in quality, professionalism, respect, fairness, pride, and camaraderie, as voted on directly by their employees.

This year’s winners were selected from more than 100 participating companies and 8,000 anonymous employee surveys. The surveys also underwent a comprehensive review by the business journal’s editorial staff to eliminate any duplicates or fraudulent entries, ensuring a genuine and equitable result.

“Since AUL’s founding in 1990, our people have been our greatest focus and most valuable asset,” said Jimmy Atkinson, the company’s president and CEO. “Their dedication to working hard for our clients and each other has been the fuel for our amazing growth from specialist VSC provider, into a full-service F&I leader. To once again be honored by them strengthens our resolve to stay true to our mission and to our community.”

This year’s competition was co-presented by the Nelson Family of Companies, Exchange Bank, Kaiser Permanente, and the Trope Group. Founded in 1987, the Business Journal’s coverage has expanded from Santa Rosa to the rest of the North Bay area, covering Sonoma, Napa, Marin, Solano, Mendocino and Lake Counties in the San Francisco Bay Area. 

AUL Corp. and the other winners will be honored at the annual Awards Gala on Thursday, Sept. 26, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Santa Rosa.
