Who We Are
Deep roots form a solid
foundation for the future.
A HISTORY OF CONNECTION
Beginning in 1963 as a local insurance agency in Cartersville, Georgia, James H. Shaw, Jr., a Cartersville native, grew the Shaw Agency (as we were then known) into a successful family business. He brought his three sons into the company, eventually leading Georgia International Life’s sales force in individual life insurance sales. In 1998, his son Randy Shaw, and friend and fellow broker Scott Hankins, purchased the Shaw Agency and ShawHankins was born. In the years to follow, they expanded our reach into group health and welfare plans, becoming a market leader in public entity benefits for city and county governments and school systems, but also for private industry. In 2010, Scott Hankins purchased the remainder of the firm and now serves as president and CEO.
Today, we are ShawHankins, our clients’ partner in employee benefits, providing competitive medical, dental, life, disability and vision plans, exceptional customer service and above all, partnership in creating solid foundations for successful futures. We are a part of the NFP Benefits Partners network, a collaborative that designs and implements innovative, customized strategies and promotes the exchange of sales ideas, strategies and practices amongst its members.
