30 Years of Service, Stability, and Satisfaction
History in the Making
Over 30 years ago, a young man named Hugh F. Miller grew tired of the farming business. However, he still needed to make a living and support his family. Hugh’s brother, Paul, then showed him the ropes in the insurance business.
On July 15th of 1985, Hugh opened Hugh F. Miller Insurance Agency. The company opened with no company contracts of any kind and no premium on the books. To start out, Hugh said his strategy was to make a list of 100 names, and just start calling.
Turns out, that strategy proved to be successful. He wrote his first farm policy on July 21st of that year. Then in the first 12 months, Hugh wrote $100,000 worth of premium and from November 22nd, 1985 to December 27th, 1986 he wrote 157 life policies alone.
It’s easy to see that Hugh F. Miller started out strong. He started out in a one room office, not sure where this insurance business would lead. Needless to say, it snowballed into a career that ran in the family’s blood, creating an empire for the Miller generations to come.
