Merger Creates Largest, Locally Owned Insurance Agency in Columbus Area

Hutchinson Traylor, a leading provider of Insurance services and Employee Benefits Consulting, today announces that it has acquired Wiggins Insurance of Columbus, GA.  Based in Columbus, Georgia, Wiggins Insurance specializes in a wide range of Personal and Commercial insurance products and services. 

“We’ve known Terry for many years and have admired the professionalism and customer service his firm provides their clients, said Hutchinson Traylor President, Wesley Smith.  “We are excited to welcome Terry and his team to the Hutchinson Traylor family and we’re proud to say that this merger will create the largest, locally owned insurance agency in the Columbus area.” The entire Wiggins Insurance team will soon join Hutchinson Traylor at their Columbus office on Bradley Park Drive.

“It has been a very smooth transition so far,” said Michael Dollar, Principal and Chief Operating Officer of Hutchinson Traylor.  “We are gratified that Wiggins clients will continue to be served by the same caring people they already know but now with access to even more resources and an expanded selection of insurance carriers.”

Hutchinson Traylor is a multi-year recipient of the prestigious National Best Practices recognition and, last year, expanded its presence into the Atlanta market. “I am thrilled at the potential of our combined firm and what it means for the Columbus community,” said Terry Wiggins.



For more than 100 years, Georgia families and businesses have counted on Hutchinson Traylor for premier property and casualty insurance products and services, as well as world class employee benefits consulting. Known as a leader in the region, HT has been recognized as a Best Practices Agency by the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America – an award given to only a small, elite group of top-performing agencies in the country.
