Learn more about the Ford Agency, Inc.
There is a lot of history behind the Ford Agency, Inc. years of service to the people of Hopewell and the surrounding Tri-Cities area. It all began in 1935 when Alfred W. Ford purchased the Caperton Insurance Agency and changed the name to the Ford Insurance Agency. Herbert M. "Buzz" Ford, Jr. joined the firm in 1939 and later became a partner of the Ford Agency, Inc. From the company's inception in 1935 until 1948, there were only four persons involved in the operation if business - Alfred and Buzz Ford, Patsy Sheally as Secretary/Treasurer, and her sister, Mary Nelson Batte. Fred C. Morene was hired to the growing insurance firm in July 1948 and served as president for 15 years.
When the business moved to larger quarters, it then became incorporated and the name changed to Ford Agency, Inc. At this time, the Real Estate Department was added. George W. Mahaney, Jr. joined the organization in 1966 to assist with the growing insurance department and served as president for 9 years. His Brother, Michael L. Mahaney came aboard in 1973 to help with the Real Estate Department and is now President and Secretary. Mike is also a Realtor/Broker and oversees the Real Estate operations. James "Jim" Fannin serves as Vice-President and Treasurer of the Insurance department. In 2016, Lee Mahaney became a partner as Vice-President of our Commercial Lines Insurance department.
