GCH Insurance Group was founded in 2003 as RGI, Inc. by Russell Griffith. Shortly thereafter, RGI merged with Jerry Catlett of Catlett’s Financial Group of Winchester, Kentucky. In 2006, John Hampton and David Henry joined the agency, thus the renaming of the agency to GCH Insurance Group.
Throughout the years we have sought experienced producers/partners who bring specific expertise to the industry. In 2015, we purchased the Houlihan Agency in Lexington. In 2017, Jim McCarty and Shelley Gaffney joined the agency. Since 2006, consistent growth has culminated in us becoming one of the largest locally owned agencies in Kentucky. In the day of corporate mergers, we pride ourselves in staying true to our roots. All of our owners are Kentucky born and raised.
We have tripled our employee size while expanding services to encompass all lines of insurance. Our personnel consist of former agency owners, company underwriters and wholesale brokers. We have partnered with many of the best and most reliable insurance companies in the industry, ranging from regional to national carriers. This partnership allows our experienced team the tools needed to seek competitive pricing and appropriate coverage for our clients.
Excellent service, whether it is in response to an insurance claim or a general question, is our number one priority. We want your confidence and a relationship that will last for years to come, a relationship built on trust!
