December 2013 Agency Spotlight – Kinghorn Insurance

Not many companies can boast of a history that dates back more than a century, but this month’s Frontline Insurance Spotlight Agency can! The Kinghorn Insurance Agency of Beaufort has been serving the insurance needs of homeowners in the Lowcountry area of South Carolina since 1898 and has weathered world wars, depressions and hurricanes over the past one hundred years.

Thirty employees make up the Kinghorn team led by James G. Taylor, Jr., Michael R. Boyne and R. Garrett Wreden, partners in the agency. Each team member is committed to providing the best service and protection to individuals, families and businesses they service.

In addition to being one of the oldest insurance agencies in the state, Kinghorn is also one of the largest privately owned agencies in South Carolina. Their unique position in the marketplace allows them to build long-lasting relationships with their clients – including one commercial client who they’ve been servicing for over 100 years!

Their dedication to service and protection has not gone unnoticed. For the past several years, the agency has won the Beaufort Gazette Reader’s Poll for Best Insurance Agency while agent Shirley Snyder has been named Agent of the Year for two years in a row. Other agents have also been recognized by earning the IIABSC Young Agent of the Year Award as well as the AAMGA Association Achievement Award.

Active in the communities they serve, Kinghorn Insurance was recently awarded the Beaufort Chamber of Commerce Civitas Award for community stewardship. They support many organizations throughout the year including Habitat for Humanity, the Beaufort Academy, Rotary and Kiwanis, Boys and Girls Club of the Lowcountry, as well as the Beaufort military bases and military families.

Kinghorn Insurance of Beaufort has been a Frontline independent agent since April 2008 and offers our HO3 homeowners insurance, HO6 condominium insurance as well as flood insurance. As a full service agency, Kinghorn also offers its customers life, health, personal auto, umbrella, commercial and other products as well as a financial services division with experienced agents that work to protect their client’s assets.

With more and more new homes being built in the coastal areas of South Carolina, Kinghorn Insurance of Beaufort recognizes Frontline’s ability to offer specialized coverage for these properties where most other markets would require a wind exclusion.

We’re proud to have a partner agency with such a rich history as part of the Frontline Insurance family, and we look forward to working with them in their next century of service.
