A little over a year ago, four of Georgia’s leading independent insurance agencies formed a strategic partnership, creating Oakbridge Insurance. The principals of Hutchinson Traylor, McGinty Gordon & Associates, Waites & Foshee and Founders Insurance had worked alongside each other for decades and shared common values and business culture as well as an overriding commitment to better serve the needs of their clients and their communities. Joining forces with like-minded professionals certainly made sense and seemed like a good idea.

It was a good fit, indeed!  It’s been a busy year for us, full of successes and growth. Oakbridge has since grown to include partnerships with The Greer Agency; Pittman Insurance Group; Snider-Killingworth Insurance Agency; Your Insurance Centers; Jenkins, Skipworth & Associates; McNeal Sports & Wilson Risk Advisors; Marietta Insurance Services; and Shield Insurance Partners.

Let’s take a look at what we’ve been able to achieve together:

  • Top 100 Broker in the US as determined by Business Insurance magazine.
  • Designated a Best Practices Agency by Independent Insurance Agents of Georgia.
  • Named a Top 100 Property/Casualty Agency by Insurance Journal.
  • Grew from the four founding agencies to 13 current partner firms.
  • Employs 280 employees in 30 offices across the Southeast.
  • Grew revenue from $30 million to more than $53 million in 2021.
  • Fully integrated back-office operations including accounting, marketing, IT and human resources.

At first glance, this seems like a lot of change. Digging a little deeper, Oakbridge’s foundational principals of integrity, accountability, expertise, growth and the common goal of achieving “trusted advisor” status have been essential to our expansion and fueled our success. Most importantly, we’ve never lost our client-first focus.

At Oakbridge’s core, we’re like-minded, community-based agencies for whom relationships take first priority. We’re proud of how we work – smartly and efficiently – always striving to better serve each other and our clients. Under the Oakbridge umbrella, we have the resources to implement best-in-class practices and beneficial technology tools to better sever clients in each office.

Our clients and employees are what propels our growth and what will drive our success into the future. We will never lose sight of that. We’re extremely grateful for the opportunity to help protect our neighbors’ interests and livelihoods. We’re Oakbridge, deeply rooted in communities across the Southeast.
