Sevierville, Tenn. – Sevierville independent insurance agency Ownby Insurance Service, Inc. is celebrating their 70th year in business this June. Founded in 1952 by Clyde Ownby, the agency had humble beginnings as Clyde sought to insure the individuals and businesses that call East Tennessee home. The agency has grown substantially over time, but their mission is still the same – make customers the top priority and provide them with honest and fair service to help them protect themselves, their loved ones, and their businesses that make the community what it is today.
Seventy years later, the agency is still proud to be a family-owned business. Clyde’s son, Mike Ownby, and grandson, Kevin Ownby, continue the tradition as owners of the company.
In celebration of the 70th year milestone, the agency has made a commitment to donate to numerous community organizations throughout the remainder of 2022. The first donation will be in support of the local Sevier County Fire Chief’s Association, in partnership with VFIS, an insurance company that provides coverage for emergency organizations in recognition of their tireless efforts to protect the public in Sevier County.
Ownby Insurance Service will be announcing the additional community organizations throughout the year as they continue to give back and celebrate 70 years in business.
