History of Thorne

History of Thorne

Thorne Insurance started in 1928 as an Independent Agency by Ben H. Thorne. Ben wrote life insurance until the 1940s when he added property and casualty lines to his services. He wrote insurance and owned the agency until 1957.

William Thorne (pictured left) continued to write life insurance along with the P & C lines. William added the ability to insure commercial lines of insurance. He wrote insurance and owned the agency until 1985, and has been a co-owner through 2005.

Rex A. Thorne joined the agency in 1985 and continued to write its existing lines. Rex added the ability to write high risk auto, health insurance, crop insurance, and bonds. He wrote full time until 2001, and co-owned the agency through 2004.

Kevin C. Killen (pictured right) "Fourth Generation" joined the agency in 1999, and continued to write its existing lines. He became the co-owner of the agency in 2004, and the sole owner of Thorne Insurance in 2005. At that time the agency had 1 location and 2 employees. He has brought more insurance markets, location expansion and growth to our company overall.

Thorne Insurance truly is an independently owned fourth generation agency that can insure absolutely anything with an "A" rated company at an incredible rate. They still continue to provide unbeatable to-your-door-service for all your insurance needs. Contact us today for your free quote.
