|The tradition of issuing the
Financial Service Provider of the Year Award (formerly known as the
Check Casher of the Year Award) began in 1991, with FiSCA deciding to
recognize those individuals within the financial services industry who
have achieved outstanding accomplishments in business management,
community involvement, and industry advocacy. Since 1991, each year
the award has been presented to the person(s) who best demonstrates
leadership and dedication within his or her company and as a member of
FiSCA. These individuals are the industry’s finest
ambassadors and for this they are recognized with the industry’s
In 2008, FiSCA lost one of its founding fathers and brightest lights
with the unexpected passing of Bill Siegel. Bill embodied all the
characteristics of the Financial Service Provider of the Year –
and then some. His passion, dedication and willingness to take on
various industry challenges was evident. His commitment and
contributions to the industry, as one-time FiSCA Chairman and long-time
Board Member, were vast. It is for this reason that the FiSCA
Board of Directors unanimously voted to remember and honor Bill by
having this prestigious award carry his name. Starting in 2008,
recipients will receive The William Siegel Financial Service Provider of
the Year Award.
