Who We Are

Peoples First Insurance provides comprehensive insurance options.

We are servants of our clients and our community.

Home » Who We Are

Your family, your business, and your possessions are all important to you, but you may not know how to best protect them. We have the experience to navigate the unique risks you face, serving as your insurance and risk management advisor.

Our agency, then and now.

Peoples First began as two agencies, each opening their doors in York County just after the turn of the 20th century. In the 1980s, those two companies became one, led by Jimmy Galloway. Today, he is joined by his son, Ben, his grandson, Zander, and 25 other members of the community who live next to you, who drop their kids off at the same school as yours, and who are ready to serve you the best they can.

Our difference.

A lot has changed in the past century; new risks are emerging, legislation changes, and strategies to protect families and businesses evolve. We invest in tools and education to provide our clients the best approaches to fit their goals. Even with the constant change, this is a ‘people’ business, and we continue to embody the timeless principles that have allowed us to be successful for all of these years.

Serving the community.

We enjoy the opportunity to consult our fellow community members of Rock Hill, SC. Offering customized protective solutions in either personal or business insurance coverage and minimizing potential risks is our ultimate goal.

Providing quality coverage.

To achieve our goals, we must serve our customers to the best of our abilities, we must strive to retain excellent staff, and we must maintain good relationships with the companies that provide the best coverages for our customers. We will continue to challenge ourselves to make this process work.

Core - Controlling Overall Risk Exposure
Our approach to Risk Management, down to the CORE.

Insurance plays a vital role in protecting your business or family, but it should never be diagnosed without first understanding the risks you face. Once you understand the risks, then you determine a plan for addressing them.

Our holistic approach called CORE (Controlling Overall Risk Exposure) allows us to understand the risks you face, and then design and execute a plan to address them.

Our Mission Statement

At Peoples First Insurance, our mission is very simple. We strive to provide a true, concierge client experience which is unique in the insurance industry. We give clients the power of choice from top-rated national and regional insurance carriers. We put People First.
