Local GEICO office opens to serve Clearwater area

CLEARWATER, Fla., Jan. 15, 2018 – GEICO has opened a new local office at 18423 U.S. Highway 19 North in Clearwater, near Clearwater Mall. Gus Espinosa, an experienced insurance industry professional, will lead a team of six licensed agents at the new bay-area location.

"We have some of the most competitive rates in our area," Espinosa said. "And, we look forward to working with communities up and down the U.S. 19 corridor in Pinellas, Pasco and Hernando counties and taking care of all their unique insurance needs."

Prior to opening GEICO's Clearwater local office, Espinosa served in the Air Force more than 20 years and worked in the insurance industry for more than 10 years. Espinosa and his staff members—Mike Leatherbury, April Brenay, Kristen Seikus, Ryan Arnett, Joe Gough and Daryus Dunbar—can help customers with not only auto insurance, but also coverage for homes, condos, renters, boats, motorcycles, identity theft and more. Additionally, Espinosa and other staff members speak fluent Spanish.

GEICO agents in the Clearwater local office look to bring savings to policyholders through multi-line and special association and alumni discounts. For example, alumni from Florida Atlantic University, Florida Gulf Coast University, Florida International University, University of Central Florida and University of Florida may qualify for savings. Also, as a military veteran, Espinosa can work with military members to see if they qualify for an additional discount.
