TWFG Celebrates 15 Years in The Woodlands and The Nation

THE WOODLANDS, TX, August 15, 2016 – How do you count success? For Gordy Bunch and The Woodlands Financial Group it means moving up from the bottom of the 38,000 independent insurance agencies in the nation into the Top 30 of the Top 100, while also ranking as number one in Texas. As TWFG celebrates its 15th anniversary, since its founding in The Woodlands with $10,000 in 2001, Bunch looks back on the past 15 years with both satisfaction and amazement. “In 2015 we recorded more than four-hundred million dollars in premiums written. We grew rapidly from just one employee and me to 334 branches in 17 states. I am happy to say she is still with the company. TWFG-managed insurance products are now protecting more than a quarter-million policyholders in 26 states, serviced by 2,029 active General Agents. We are number one in Texas for Personal Lines (homeowner and auto) insurance,”

“Just days before the tragedy of September 11, 2001 paralyzed the nation, I launched an independent financial and insurance agency as The Woodlands Financial Group,” Bunch recalls the worst possible market conditions. “Everyone was concerned about national and worldwide threats during those troubled times, so they were not yet ready to apply those concerns to their personal risks. But I knew I had developed a unique product which was not the one-size-fits-all insurance offered by the ‘big boys.’ Agents who work for the giant brand name insurance companies are what the industry calls ‘captive agents.’ These agents are restricted to offering only their own company’s insurance products. TWFG turned the industry on its ear by providing ‘the best of the Bunch’ to each customer, fitting the policy that offers the most applicable coverage and cost to every individual, family, and business. We deal with more than 200 insurance companies so we give every one of our local and national agents the freedom to offer multiple options to our diverse group of customers.”

“We began TWFG with another unique dimension to our winning strategies and that is to serve our policyholders with professionalism and integrity. We proudly boast that ‘Our Policy is Caring©. We expect to improve even on that service pledge as we move into the next stage of our corporate life with a physical expansion, more agents in more cities, new products that are being demanded by the marketplace, and taking another giant step towards our original goal of reaching one billion dollars before our 25th anniversary.”
