The date May 4, 1989 will be etched in Gene Galligan's memory forever. On that day his home town Monroe, Louisiana was hit by a catastrophic hail storm. Soon after, Gene's agency was hit by carriers pulling out. But his agency survived, thanks to his PIA colleagues lining him up with a new carrier, when he needed it most.

"Because of our PIA affiliations, we were able to continue in business; from there we were able to plant with other companies," said Galligan "Twenty-six years later, we are still in business and still a member of PIA! From those acts, I realized that PIA agents are not just competitors but part of a family, and I needed to be an active member in that family." Read Gene Galligan's compelling story here.
