William L. Cothran Jr., started the agency in 1981 from scratch. His initial office was located on the first floor of the Regional Office for Nationwide located at 800 Graves Mill Rd Lynchburg, Va. The first policy he wrote, and thus the first policy on the books, was his own. He worked diligently day and night to be able to provide for his family, sometimes having to go and pick up premiums from customers after dinner or over the weekend just to retain customers. He eventually grew the agency to the point that he could afford an associate agent. In 1983 he recruited his wife, Sharon Cothran. He eventually moved out of the regional office and shared space with another Nationwide agent located in a strip mall on Timberlake Rd in Lynchburg, Va. His agency expanded rapidly, eventually requiring that he move out to a larger more permanent space on his own located at 423 Laxton Rd Lynchburg, Va 24502 where his principal office has remained since 1991.
The current owner Wes Cothran has earned several designations by expanding his knowledge that he attained by the tutelage and benefit of his father's 32 year experience. He has been recognized as one of Nationwide's top commercial insurance producers. As his current client base has an ever expanding need, he is currently licensed in 23 states plus the District of Columbia. With the help of his knowledgeable staff, he aspires to continue to provide the highest level of customer service.
