The Shannon Insurance Agency began in 1939.
Mr. H.K. Shannon started with 50 policies with Hartford Insurance. He ran the agency from a second floor office on Main Street in Portland, Tennessee. In the 1950's, Robert Shannon joined the agency to assist his father in the operation of the business. Soon afterward they relocated the agency to 107 South Broadway. In the early 1960's Doug Shannon joined the agency as a partner with brother Robert. That partnership continued until 1980 when Doug purchased the agency from Robert, and he continued to operate the growing agency until June 2000.
In June 2000, The Farmers Bank acquired Shannon Insurance Agency. The agency was sold to Paul Fuqua in 2005.
The agency continues to grow and is now able to reach out into Robertson County as well as Sumner County to provide a wide array of products and services. We offer personal insurance such as auto, homeowner’s and life insurance, as well as health and long term care insurance, among others. For businesses we offer property, general liability, workers compensation, commercial auto, and surety bonds.
