Since we are Virginians, a word about our history…

Hughes, Gregory & Wells Agency, Inc. is a merger of several insurance agencies. Like a patchwork quilt, all of the pieces come together to make us what we are today.

Jack Hughes founded the Jack Hughes Insurance Agency in the 1960’s. His wife, Lucy Hughes Fowler, carried on the business after his untimely death. Lucy was a woman ahead of her time, running an insurance agency in the male dominated insurance business before many women had careers. Lucy believed everyone deserved the opportunity for a better life with hard work and perseverance. She often offered that opportunity to others through her work, insurance and innumerable acts of kindness.

Lucy saw in Billy Wells the future of her beloved agency, and she hired him as an agent in 1982. Over the years, Billy’s outgoing, friendly personality helped grow the Hughes Agency’s small but very stable customer base. By the time Billy purchased the Hughes agency in 1996, the customer base had more than tripled.

When Billy heard Blaine Lenhart, owner of the Carson Gregory Agency in Chase City, might retire, he instinctively knew this was opportunity knocking. The Gregory Agency was established in 1938, and this was a once in a lifetime chance to acquire it’s small but intensely loyal customer base. Despite the challenges of taking on new companies, moving files and hiring new people, Billy purchased the Carson Gregory Agency in 1999 and the Hughes, Gregory & Wells Agency was born!

Other opportunities arose when Carolyn Hite of the Chappell Agency in Clarksville wished to retire. Again, Billy took the initiative to grow the agency by purchasing this business.

Most recently, the Hughes, Gregory & Wells Agency acquired the John D. Bevell Agency’s personal lines policies when illness struck Mr. Bevell. Because both agencies represented many of the same companies, Mr. Bevell felt the Hughes, Gregory & Wells Agency was a good fit for his customers.

All of these acquisitions, competitively priced insurance products from reliable companies, and a reputation for offering coverage to everyone have brought the Hughes, Gregory & Wells Agency to where it is today…poised to move ahead with purpose, confidence and enthusiasm.
