Rusty joined Nationwide as a NADP (Nationwide Agent Development Program) in November 1989. He was originally housed in the district office on I 220 in Jackson at that time. In April 1991, he opened his first office, a one room office ("with a bathroom thank you" says Rusty) in the old Log village on Hwy 51 in Ridgeland, second floor. "The unit had been a little girls clothing shop previously" remembers Rusty. "The walls were a bright pink. It took 3 coats of paint to finally get rid of it." There, the work that started at the district office continued in earnest. 60 hour work weeks with lunch and often dinner at the desk or on the road to the next appointment. "I put over 60,000 miles on my little black Nissan Sentra over the next 2 years, just working the Metro area." In May 1993, the opportunity came to move to a more visible location on Hwy 51 in Madison. "That office had 2 rooms and a bath" states Rusty proudly. "The rent was more, but you could actually see the sign from the road, which was more than the Log Village afforded, and I was able to cut the grass in front and to the side of the building to lower the rent. It all worked out." This location served as the Agency's home for the next ten years. Here Rusty became heavily involved with the City of Madison Chamber of Commerce (serving as its President in 1997), the Madison Lions Club (president in 2000) and other local civic activities. He also hired Dolores Snead as an associate in 1998 and Donna Wade in 2003. "Very fortunate for me and our insureds" says Rusty. "Dolores and Donna took us to the next level." In 2003, Rusty had the opportunity to move to the Agency's current location at 7738 Old Canton Road. With more than double the space, he added Angela Wade in 2004, Shawna Cox in 2011, and both Landon Thompson & Elizabeth Howe in 2015.
