RIDGELAND — Barksdale Bonding & Insurance Inc. has changed its name to Regions Insurance Inc., and is moving to a new location at 200 Renaissance at Colony Park in Ridgeland, which houses several Regions Financial Corporation lines of business and executives.
“Now, we can operate as a team under the same Regions Insurance name and banner and more seamlessly align with our affiliated Regions companies to provide our clients with solutions to all their insurance and financial needs.Æ said Curren Coco, head of the Insurance Division for Regions Financial. “It is an exciting time in the life of our company.”
Birmingham, Ala.-based Regions acquired Barksdale Bonding & Insurance in Jan. 2008. The multi-line insurance agency has offices in Jackson, Nashville, Tenn., and Troy, Ala.
With Barksdale’s name change, all Regions Insurance commercial agencies will now operate as Regions Insurance.
Barksdale has a diverse client base, with a heavy concentration in the Southeast. The company’s insurance property and casualty expertise includes general property and casualty, construction, transportation, aviation as well as employee benefits and bonding. In business for more than 75 years, they are Mississippi’s largest broker for commercial transportation, as well as agricultural aviation and general aviation, and one of the state’s largest group health brokerages.
“While our name is changing, our home is in Jackson, and who we are and what we do is still the same,” said Charles Porter, head of Barksdale. “Being part of Regions Insurance and Regions Financial has expanded the expertise and options that we can provide for clients.”
