Excellence and integrity have been a focus of Peoples Underwriters for over 50 years.

Established in 1959 by four local business leaders, Peoples Underwriters has maintained a commitment to personal relationships within our community. Today, our staff serves customers from two convenient locations: 400 Main Street in Conway and 200 Ronnie Court in the Carolina Forest area of Myrtle Beach.

Peoples Underwriters has remained true to the original independent spirit of our founders. Three directors and principal operations officers of Peoples National Bank, C. A. Spivey, B. L. Spivey and L. N. Clark, were joined by Philip A. Thompson, who offered insurance and finance experience. In 1968, Philip became the agency’s sole owner. From that time until his 1990 retirement, stockholders were members of the Thompson family.

In 1996, Frank A. Thompson, II was the sole stockholder, with officers Dana D. Groome and H. Delan Stevens acquiring stock in 1999 and 2006, respectively. Groome and Stevens continued the independent, local ownership of the agency after the passing of Frank Thompson in 2007.

Peoples Underwriters is a member of the Independent Insurance Agents and Brokers of America (IIABA), of South Carolina (IIABSC) and Horry/Georgetown Counties (IIABHGC). We represent many highly-rated national and regional insurance companies and brokers, giving our agents options in addressing the insurance concerns of customers.
