Our company was founded in 2003 by Robyn Jones, a real estate investor. After trying hard to find an insurance agent that was both smart AND cared about her business, she finally threw up her hands and proclaimed, “I’m starting my own insurance agency.”
Over the course of the next few months, she created TWG Insurance and then convinced her husband, Mark – a Harvard MBA and senior partner of Bain & Co. – to join the company as CEO.
Mark Jones’ vision was to build an insurance agency that was completely different than anything in the industry. Based on his business experience, he concluded that by assembling a team of the most capable people, they could deliver an extraordinary client experience. Rather than just try to improve on the current industry model, he started with a blank sheet of paper and designed from scratch a business model with laser focus on providing the best service, value and experience to our clients. This strategy was successful – very successful. Over the next decade he and his team built TWG into one of the largest and fastest growing insurance agencies in the United States.
In 2012, the company extended itself under the brand Goosehead Insurance to franchise owners who were, themselves, the finest the insurance industry had to offer. In 2014, the company combined its corporate and franchise operations under one name: Goosehead Insurance.
Goosehead Insurance continues to grow exponentially and now has over 300 franchise agency partners. Goosehead’s strategy is very simple: provide a true, concierge client experience that is unique in the insurance industry and give clients the power of choice from the top rated national and regional insurance carriers.
