fmt agency spotlight hatchett insuranceHatchett Insurance is a second generation, independent insurance agency founded in 1954 in Cowan, Tennessee by Nelson’s father, Kenneth Hatchett.  Nelson’s original career aspiration was to go into industrial management which he studied in college. However, as Nelson says, “I got into insurance by accident or divine providence”. When Nelson’s father passed away, Nelson and his mother, Mildred Hatchett, ran the agency for several years before she retired.

In order to provide the best service, the team at Hatchett Insurance handles each customer’s requests quickly and efficiently by providing fast and fair quotes as well as claims handling. Coming from a small rural area like Franklin County, Nelson and his team have taken a generalist approach to business and have become knowledgeable about various lines of insurance coverage including homes, mobile homes, rental dwellings, farms, churches and automobiles.

“Whatever the need in the way of insurance, we try to get it done for our customers”, Nelson says. “Our level of service sets us apart from our competition.  We answer the phone in person.  We greet each person with a smile when they come in our door. The bottom line is we treat people just like we would want to be treated.”

The relationship between Hatchett Insurance and Farmers Mutual of Tennessee goes back many years. According to Nelson, “We really appreciate the niche FMT fills for us. They are very stable. Stability and retention work together. We appreciate the fact that FMT doesn’t try to do everything but they try real hard to be good at what they do.”

FMT also values our relationship with Hatchett Insurance and appreciate Nelson, Denise, Tammy, Virginia and Mary’s commitment to their customers.
