Hoch receives award for exceptional service to the community

February 24, 2021

Ohio National Financial Services is pleased to announce Kevin Hoch, assistant vice president with Ohio National’s Disability Income Insurance (DI) product management, was honored with its prestigious 2020 Paul E. Martin Community Service award in recognition of his exceptional generosity and community service.   

Hoch spends most of his community service time through Trinity Lutheran in Mt. Healthy, where he and his wife Irene have worshipped for almost 40 years. Beginning in 2009, they have helped their church host a weekly community meal called “Feed Your Neighbor” that is open to anyone. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the sit-down meal at the church transitioned into carry out meals, with about 100 to 125 meals packaged and distributed to the community each week.

“I am honored to be recognized by my employer with this prestigious award. I feel proud that our church is reaching outside our walls and helping feed our neighbors, especially at this time when the need is so great,” said Hoch, a 36-year associate at Ohio National. In addition to the Feed Your Neighbor program, Hoch prepares and co-performs in puppet shows for children’s sermons and is involved in other activities within his church. As a recipient of the Paul E. Martin award, Hoch designated a $2,500 donation to Trinity Lutheran Church.

Ohio National established the award in 1979 to honor its financial professionals and home office associates who give unselfishly of their time and talent to aid their communities. The award is named for former Ohio National Chairman and chief executive officer Paul E. Martin, who was a prime example of community involvement and corporate leadership. During his 33 years with Ohio National, his interests extended outward from the insurance industry to the community as a whole.
