Over eighty years ago, in the midst of the Great Depression, Leo and Lillian Goodwin started Government Employees Insurance Company by offering low rates and outstanding customer service directly to government employees. By cutting out the middle-man GEICO was able to offer unbelievably low rates to a targeted group of consumers. This business model was so attractive that in 1950 a 20-year old Warren Buffet made a special trip from NY to Washington D.C. to check out GEICO. After a 5-hour impromptu Saturday meeting with the then GEICO President, Warren Buffet started investing in GEICO and spreading the word about this unique company.
Today, GEICO is a wholly owned subsidiary of Buffet’s Berkshire Hathaway and the second largest private passenger automobile insurance company in the country. Low rates and great customer service are still what drives GEICO’s business with the help of the Gecko and an unmatched brand.
