Andrew & Dinah Lewis
Owners of Russellville Insurance Agency
Harold Lewis, founder Clarksville Insurance Agency, Inc. (CIA), had a deep passion for helping others and a big drive to offer people protection through valuable insurance products. In 1947, after leaving the military, he lived and worked out of a downtown motel, traveling door-to-door throughout Johnson County. Harold eventually opened an office on the court square, and later also opened and operated a savings and loan company to assist the community with affordable interest rates. Harold was a mover, shaker, and cared for his community. He was a co-founder of American Underwriters Insurance Company based in Conway, Arkansas to better serve the rural areas. There was no stopping his tenacity and love for bettering the industry. Harold was a past president of the National Association of Professional Insurance Agents, and served on multiple boards and associations within the community. Harold never really “retired” until his passing in 2013.
By the 1970’s, Harold’s sons, Keith & Jim, joined the agency. With a growing reputation and respect from top carriers, the agency contracted companies such as Allstate and Progressive around 1976. Keith later relocated the office to its current location on West Main St in 1997. Keith went on to operate the agency from his father in the late 1980s, after years of helping growing the business together. Keith also served as a president of the National Association of Professional Insurance Agents and served on numerous community boards and associations during his career as like Harold, had a deep passion for making Clarksville a better community.
In 2004 Keith’s son, Andrew, continued the family tradition and joined the business, following the completion of his studies at Arkansas Tech University where he earned a B.A. in Business Administration. Andrew was a producer from 2004 – 2013. In 2013, Andrew became the agency’s new owner and third generation to run Clarksville Insurance Agency, Inc, in which he continues to standfast in the core foundation laid by his grandfather. In 2019, to continue to serve the River Valley, the agency opened a second location in Russellville: Russellville Insurance Agency (RIA), and added to the CIA team. The two agencies operate as a whole, and deliver the same level of service.
Today, the company continues to thrive as an independent insurance agency. The agency prides itself in PROMPT, PROFESSIONAL SERVICE with a focus on protecting clients with comprehensive insurance coverages ranging from home and auto to life and business insurance.
