DAYTON, Ohio, April 30, 2018 – GEICO has opened a new local office in West Carrollton at 466 North Springboro Pike, one mile north of the Dayton Mall. Andrew Etheridge will lead a team of four licensed agents at the new location.

"Dayton is a new market for GEICO to have a local presence, and we see a tremendous opportunity to grow" Etheridge said. "We're eager to bring GEICO's competitive rates with a personal touch to customers living in the greater Dayton area, including the counties of Montgomery, Preble, Darke, Greene, Clark, Champaign, Logan, Miami, Shelby, Mercer and Auglaize."

Etheridge is no stranger to GEICO, having worked as a sales agent and supervisor for more than five years prior to opening the Dayton area local office.
