AKRON, Ohio, June 26, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Valmark Financial Group has been named a Top Workplace by The Plain Dealer for the fourth year in a row.

"As we celebrate our 60th anniversary, we are proud to have achieved one of the highest overall customer satisfaction scores in our firm's history."
