GEICO opens local office in Knoxville

KNOXVILLE, Tenn., March 23, 2015 – GEICO has opened a new local office in Knoxville at 9165 Kingston Pike. Brian Chapman, a seasoned GEICO insurance professional, will lead a team of three licensed agents at the location.

Chapman and his staff, made up of agents BJ Sims, Jared Goins and Dionne Chapman have a combined 25 years of insurance industry experience. Along with auto policies, the team can help with boat, renters, homeowners, RV and more forms of insurance, as well as work to bring additional savings through multi-line discounts.
