Insurance is more than a business to Curtis Moring Jr. -- it's a way he gives back to the community. As president of Curtis Moring Insurance Inc., he focuses on nonprofit organizations and the environment -- as well as operating the brokerage that sells more than $12 million in coverage annually.
The company started in 1963, when Curtis Moring Sr. became licensed to sell life insurance. Originally the sales job was pitched to his wife -- but Moring decided to take on the task instead. He eventually obtained his property and casualty insurance license and started acquiring clients.
Now, the company specializes in high-risk events and customized packages specialized to the client -- something the firm can provide as an independent insurer that puts it ahead of national chain competitors.
