MACON, Ga.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–A Covington, Ga., couple called GEICO recently looking to purchase a new
auto insurance policy. Little did they know that their 15-minute phone
conversation with GEICO sales counselor Jon Hollingshed of Macon, Ga.,
would propel GEICO to a record-breaking 15-millionth policy.
“We are extremely excited that the 15-millionth policy was purchased
here in Georgia,” said GEICO regional vice president Rhett Rayburn. “For
the second time in 12 months, we’ve been a part of a significant
policyholder milestone. This is a true testament to the tireless effort
and hard work of our GEICO team here in Macon.”
Speaking with the couple over the phone, Hollingshed mentioned that they
did their homework by asking the right questions, looking at coverage
options, comparing quotes and reading customer reviews. “They reviewed
different auto insurance companies but chose to go with GEICO because of
our easy sales process, price discounts and mainly positive customer
comments,” said Hollingshed.
As for being a part of GEICO’s historic milestone, Hollingshed had no
idea that he had just sold GEICO’s 15-millionth policy. “When they told
me the good news, I couldn’t believe it,” said Hollingshed. “My initial
impression: what are the chances of that happening?”
