“I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.”- L.M. Montgomery’s Anne of Green gables. This latest show car circuit was the last of the year and was a good one. You couldn’t ask for a better fall trip to take driving through Georgia and Tennessee as the autumn leaves were showing their colors both in the trees and on the ground. The weather was warmer than usual, possibly the calm after the storm that was Hurricane Matthew. Originally scheduled to start this last show car circuit on the coast of South Carolina and already halfway there, it was decided that it would be best for those GAINSCO Auto Insurance® partner agents to take a rain check until after things get back to normal. That meant heading back home for a few days’ rest, before heading back out but this time for southern Georgia to work with GAINSCO’s “Glowing” Territory Manager Ashley Buice and some of her agents. 

From Georgia it was up to Tennessee to officially meet GAINSCO’s newest Territory Manager Amanda Whitehead! Amanda comes to us from an insurance family as her father and grandfather have had their own well-established agency in Crossville, TN for decades. This is exactly where Amanda would get her first on the job show car training! Pictured above are Amanda (far right) and her family along with the tight-knit staff at Brown Insurance Group! This kicked off a full week of show car events and traveling back and forth across the state before ending the weekend setting up and attending GAINSCO Auto Insurance’s first appearance at the annual Insurors Of Tennessee convention in downtown Nashville, TN.
