Founder – Claude Wilmoth (1990)

The agency was founded in 1939 by Claude Wilmoth, who at the time, was a barber. Because business was slow during the working day, Claude found time to pursue other interests which lead him into insurance and the establishment of the agency that bears the family’s name. To this day, Wilmoth Insurance remains an independent, family-owned agency that has provided insurance services for the residents of the Upper Cumberland region of Tennessee for three generations.

With a combined experience of over 220 years, the team includes Keith Wilmoth, Larry Wilmoth, Roger Wilmoth, Vickie Wilmoth, Alton Freeman and Glenda Thomas. Five of whom graduated from the local, Tennessee Tech University. They have also been proud to support the local community by sponsoring sports at both Cookeville High School and youth levels. They currently sponsor the Wilmoth Insurance Agency Hot Rods coaches pitch baseball team.

“The agency is a legacy, as we strive to live up to the standards Claude instilled in us,” says Larry Wilmoth, one of the principals at Wilmoth Insurance. “We like to think that our years of experience and attention to the customer’s needs set us apart from our competitors.”
