Steve Pond, owner of Pond Insurance Services, is celebrating 30 years in business and was recently recognized by the Fayette County Chamber of Commerce for this milestone.
The business took a series of steps with offices on Court Street and Main Street to its current location at 777 W. Elm St. in Washington C.H. Pond sells auto, home, life, and commercial insurance through Erie Insurance, while the farm policies are with Hastings Insurance.
Pond credits his success to building relationships and says, “If you’re in it for the money, you’ll never make it. If you’re in it for the relationships with people, you’ll be OK.” His philosophy has always been to do the right thing, always have the client‘s best interest in mind and look long term.
“Steve is a great example of a successful small business owner,” said Fayette County Chamber of Commerce Director Whitney Gentry. “Roughly 85 percent of our members are family owned, small operations so we are very happy for Steve and others like him who reach such benchmarks.”
