Joint Venture Announced: CFG Insurance Agency and Gans & Smith Insurance Agency Inc.

Brad Tidwell, Chairman of CFG Insurance Agency of Henderson (a subsidiary of Citizens National Bank), is proud to announce a joint venture with Gans & Smith Insurance Agency Inc. of Longview.  Chairman Tidwell stated, “This is an exciting time for CFG Insurance and we couldn’t be happier to have Gans & Smith join our team.” 

Gans & Smith was organized in 1889 by J.R. and T.E. Clemmons, and has operated continuously over the last 123 years.  The agency assumed its present name in 1912, under the partnership of W. Bruner Smith and Daniel W. Gans. Ownership of the agency at the present time is vested in four corporate principals, including David McWhorter, President & Managing Partner, who will oversee the Henderson CFG Insurance operations.  David brings a wealth of experience to the table and will be a trusted CFG adviser.  Chairman Tidwell continued, “With their longevity, expertise and the excellent leadership by David McWhorter, they will be an invaluable asset to CFG Insurance.  We look forward to many years of continued success with them.”

CFG Insurance Agency was formed in 1999 when Citizens National Bank broadened services for bank clients to include home, auto, business, life and health insurance. The following year the bank provided professional depth and a large insurance customer base to CFG Insurance by acquiring The Preston Agency in Henderson which was a highly regarded family owned agency dating back to 1913. With a larger and well experienced staff CFG Insurance moved in 2003 to its current location on Hwy. 79 in Henderson.

All staff at CFG will remain in place and Linda Purcell will continue to serve as Sr. Vice President.  CFG offers competitive insurance products through all Citizens National Bank locations and directly throughout East Texas.  The agency staff includes specialists in the areas of commercial auto insurance, group life/health benefits and risk management consulting as well as the standard insurance policies needed by any individual, family or business. The service expertise, product offerings, leadership and experience will continue with the Gans & Smith relationship.

David McWhorter, President of Gans & Smith stated, “We are pleased to be a part of this partnership.  Both groups are well established in East Texas and bring similar values, views and ideas to the table.  The enhanced potential for the sales growth and improved client service to the clients of both organizations is very exciting.  Most importantly, the transition to the new partnership will be almost seamless while all CFG customers both current and new will benefit from the availability of a larger number of companies for improved coverage and pricing.”
