Our history

John began his insurance career in January 1976 with the National Life & Accident Insurance Company where he served for 10 years, first as an agent, and the later 6 years in management. Then in July 1986 he had the privilege of opening his own Nationwide Insurance Agency as an independent contractor. With his 38+ years of knowledge, experience, and customer care, John has established his agency here in Knoxville as the trusted choice of many.
