The History of Clarkson Insurance

  • Started in May of 1964, the agency has grown to more than 35 employees and operates in all 50 states

Bobby Clarkson originally founded his company, the Robert H. Clarkson Insurance Agency, in 1964. He was the only employee, and only sold one line of insurance products at the time. But while Bobby and his young company might not have had a lot of startup capital or a directory full of high-profile contacts, he did have a belief in three simple things: Attitude, Effort, and Persistence.

By leveraging those qualities to the maximum of his abilities, and never wavering in his commitment to finding the best policy for every single client, Bobby was able to grow his small agency quickly. In just over twenty years, R.H. Clarkson Financial Services had incorporated, moved into all 50 states.
