At Frank Winston Crum Insurance, we leverage the skills of talented individuals to constantly innovate and challenge the status quo. We translate our passion into the best insurance experience for those we serve.
Frank Winston Crum Insurance was founded in 2003 as a commercial insurance carrier, although its origins date back even further.
With a passion for helping small business owners succeed, Frank W. Crum, Jr. and his father, Frank Crum, Sr., opened the Great American Temporary Service in 1981. Since then, the company has expanded and evolved into what is now known as the FrankCrum family of companies: FrankCrum PEO (a professional employer organization), FrankCrum Staffing, and Frank Winston Crum Insurance. Haley and Matt Crum, Frank's children, joined the organization, and together the Crum family provides vision and leadership across all brands.
Since its founding, FWCI has grown from a single-state carrier to one licensed in most states. It's added product lines and value-added services, and through a carefully selected agent network, expanded into markets across the US.
Today, FWCI partners with agents to offer reliable and affordable workers' compensation and general liability insurance to small and mid-sized businesses with planned expansion into new markets and product lines.
