Agency has new location, employees

Sunday, November 18, 2007

County Wide Insurance Agency officially cuts the ribbon marking its official opening at a new location.
SIKESTON -- County Wide Insurance Agency not only has a new home, it also has two new faces.

The business is now located in the Alliance Bank building, 820 B. North Main St. The agency is in Suite One, located on the north side of the building.

"It provides easier access to our agency for our customers," said Lisa Grissom, branch manager. "Everyone knows where Alliance Bank is located and will be able to find us quickly and easily."

More parking is also available at the new location.

The agency specializes in commercial insurance, which includes workers compensation, commercial property, commercial auto and general liability, Grissom said.

"We also do personal, auto, home, life and health insurance," said Curtis Tumbleson, producing agent. "We do everything."

"As an independent insurance agency our goal is to assist you with all your insurance needs," Grissom added.

Discounts are available to customers if their home and auto insurance are put together.

Tumbleson, who joined the agency in August, has several years of experience working in life and benefits insurance. Tumbleson has recently begun to work with both large and medium-sized commercial accounts.

Also new to the CWI team is Bart Ziegenhorn, who joined the agency in September.

"Bart brings a new enthusiasm to us all," Grissom said. "He is a young professional that will do great things for County Wide."

And Grissom has an extensive background in all lines of the insurance business. From service to producer to manager, she has filled all roles in the industry.

All of these changes are to better serve their clientele. "We work hard to build a trusted relationship with our customers," Grissom said. "We seek out the best companies that offer the appropriate coverages at a fair price."

Staff at the agency invite customers to stop by and visit them at their new location.

"Our staff is ready to assist you with any of your insurance needs," said Grissom.

The business is open 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday and by appointment by calling 481-9873.

The agency also provides round-the-clock service on its Web site, www.countywideins.com.
