The Yates Agency, Inc.

Our history

In 1977, Bill Yates opened his first Nationwide Agency in Hinton, WV. He was recruited into Nationwide Sales management from 1990 to 1994 where he served as the Chattanooga District Sales Manager. In 1994 Bill relocated to Kingsport, TN and started what today, we now know as THE YATES AGENCY, which has grown to nine offices in East Tennessee and Southwest Virginia. Bill's two sons have always been active in the family business and in 2015, Jonathan Yates took over the designation of the Principle Agent. THE YATES AGENCY believes that focus on their members and strong leadership team have attributed to their successes. THE YATES AGENCY has received Nationwide's top honors, achieving the prestigious All Star Award and induction into Nationwide's Hall of Fame.
