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.

"We're here to deliver highly competitive rates with a personal touch to Knoxville's many local communities."

Chapman has more than 15 years of experience with GEICO serving in a variety of roles. Prior to opening his own local office, he was GEICO's sales director for the southeast U.S., where he gained a wealth of knowledge about the specific needs of the Knoxville regional market.
