The Taylor Agency

Centauri launched in South Carolina during August 2014.  Because of the relationship The Taylor Agency had with Rick Espino and Lora Rees with a prior carrier, it made sense that they were one of the first agencies appointed.  “It has been a GREAT relationship. The Taylor Agency ranks number one in Total Written Premium in South Carolina.” said Wyatt Hall, SC Regional Sales Manager.

The Taylor Agency is very active in their community. They have a group of employees who make up their Community Events Advisory Committee and are in charge of finding or creating opportunities to support some of their favorite local charities. Kim Taylor says "It's an excellent opportunity for everyone to be together, to give back and to show off our mad teamwork skills."

AGENCY HISTORY


The agency began as half of an agency “cluster” called Mayfield & Taylor and was predominantly a commercial insurance agency with locations in Charleston, Columbia and Greenville, SC. In 1987, the agency cluster disbanded and became Taylor Agency. We relocated to Wappoo Centre in Charleston, SC. Hurricane Hugo brought many changes to the coastal insurance marketplace in 1989. Over the next several years, as personal lines carriers came back into the marketplace, our personal lines presence increased and evolved into what it is today.




AWARDS AND RECOGNITIONS FROM CENTAURI AND OTHER ORGANIZATIONS


Over the past 41 years, we have been awarded a variety of President’s Circle trips, we have been invited to participate on several advisory board councils and we have achieved advanced production status with many of our carrier partners. In addition, many of our agents have continued their insurance training and been awarded designations such as CIC, CPCU, AAI, CISR, CRM, etc. Some of our agents are very active in regional and state insurance associations including; Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of Charleston, Independent Agents and Brokers of South Carolina, Professional Insurance Agents of South Carolina, and the South Carolina Wind and Hail Underwriting Association.




ADDITIONAL FUN FACTS


We have a group of employees who make up the CEAC (Community Events Advisory Committee). The group is in charge of finding or creating opportunities for our agency and our agents to give back to the community throughout the year. Over the years we have participated in events such as: preparing meals and treat bags for the Ronald McDonald House in Charleston, SC, working with several schools throughout the tri-county area during the Trident United Way’s Day of Caring, volunteering with the delivery crew for Meals on Wheels in Summerville, SC, sorting donated clothing for Lowcountry Orphan Relief, and collecting food for and volunteering at the Lowcountry Food Bank.
