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 in part due to a clever mix of the best and most 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 and Alexander & Alexander.
All these entities contributed their extensive expertise, company contacts, quality customer care and knowledge of the Rio Grande Valley’s particular insurance needs and interests. Shepard Walton King has emerged through its unique position as the premier insurance agency in the Rio Grande Valley, offering over 185 years of combined experience and expertise in the insurance business.
