My first experience with Nationwide began in 1962 when my father, Donald P. DePue began his 30+ year career as a Nationwide agent. I still remember answering the phone & greeting his policyholders when they came to his office located in the basement of our home in Kresgeville, PA. I would often accompany him when he would go out to do homeowners inspections. I would hold one end of the tape measure while he held the other and recorded the length of a wall on a diagram of the house. I graduated from Pleasant Valley High School in 1973 and the Pennsylvania State University in 1977. I thought that I would give retail a try and managed a Radio Shack on Hamilton St. in Allentown for two years. In September 1980, my father asked me if I had ever considered a career in insurance and that Nationwide was looking to hire an agent for the Lehighton area. I applied and after numerous interviews and countless tests, I was hired in November 1980 as a second generation Nationwide agent. Since moving to Lehighton, I have been active in many things - Lehighton Fire Dept. Lehigh Fire Co. No. 1, Lehighton Lodge F&AM No. 621, Mauch Chunk Trust Co. Advisory Board, Boy Scouts, Franklin Twp. Little League and the Bach and Handel Chorale to name a few. Many things have changed since 1980. Typewriters and paper applications are a thing of the past replaced with computers, printers and new policy forms. The one thing that has never changed is our personalized one on one service. We are proud to serve the Carbon County and surrounding counties and we are looking forward to earning your insurance business.
