Our History

Our History

Our agency’s founder was a very special and well-respected man, Tony Yates.  Tony was a unique combination of wisdom, spunk, and honesty – and it is those qualities we still strive to emulate today.  We were all deeply saddened when Tony passed away unexpectedly several years ago.  With his passing, a second-generation Tony emerged – his daughter-in-law, Tina Yates.  Tina reflects, “I am blessed to have learned the business from Tony Yates and can carry on his work and build on his legacy.  He empowered me and gave me the tools to be the best I can be and, in turn, help every member of our great staff to do the same.”

Greene County Insurance is locally owned.  Our agents are located right here and available to meet with you in person.  We are your neighbors, and we love and support our local community. Check out our GCI News section for more information.

We work for you.

Greene County Insurance is an Independent Agent. That means we work for you – not for insurance companies.  That’s important because it allows use to develop custom insurance packages based on what’s best for you.
