On June 21, CNA National (CNAN) celebrates two decades at Lincoln Towne Center. In 1999, this became the company’s sixth home in Scottsdale, Arizona, having moved from a neighboring building at 7272 E. Indian School Road. CNAN was the first occupant of the 4150 building and remains the anchor tenant. Founded as Western National Warranty Corporation in 1982 by Paul and Judy Askos at 7033 E. First Avenue, it is one of the leading independent suppliers of vehicle service contracts sold through automobile dealerships nationwide.
We’ve always called Scottsdale home,” said Joe Becker, president and CEO. “Even after being acquired in 1995 by CNA, which is headquartered in Chicago, we remained here. Since moving in, our space in the building has expanded with us as our number of employees has grown to nearly 300. This facility provides a professional atmosphere for our staff, contributing to our results-oriented business culture of fostering a challenging and fun work environment.”
Located in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale, the center consists of two five-story office buildings built on the former site of Scottsdale High School. Closed in 1983 due to falling enrollment, the school was torn down in 1992. However, CNAN maintains a link to the old learning institution, as several employees graduated from there, including former president and
CEO Joan Saunders.
