Shepard Walton King Insurance Group was formed in 1995 when Bob Shepard, Neal King, and Bob Walton bought the South Texas insurance business of Alexander & Alexander. The success of this progressive insurance group was due in part to a clever mix of competitive agencies in the Rio Grande Valley.
Shepard Walton King draws its history from many of the area’s distinguished and reputable agencies:
- Wm. F. Powell Insurance Agency
- Whitsitt, Ralston, and Stiff Insurance Agency
- Flynn Insurance Agency
- Cocozza, Shepard, Walton Insurance Agency
- Alexander & Alexander
All of these entities contributed their extensive expertise, company contacts, quality customer care, and knowledge of the Rio Grande Valley’s particular insurance needs and interests. As such, Shepard Walton King offers over 185 years of combined experience in the insurance business.
Our Team of Knowledgeable Agents and Staff
At Shepard Walton King, we take great care to ensure that our staff has the experience and knowledge required to properly serve our clients. Many of our agents and staff have come from the industry itself, including companies such as Travelers, Allstate, and Farmers. We continuously build on this established foundation by requiring everyone in our office to further their educations.
Each agent receives eight to 15 hours of continuing educational services annually. By staying on the cutting edge of the insurance industry, our leaders, agents, and office staff are uniquely situated to offer our clients quality service.
