The Bottoms Group (TBG) has been serving our community since 1947, specializing in two areas- Employee Benefit Services and Life Insurance and Estate Planning. Able to provide services to large and small businesses as well as individuals, TBG utilizes a national network to supply clients with numerous services to fit each need.

The company continues to grow because of their strong relationships with their existing client base and their ongoing commitment to best practices. The complexity of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) has been a challenge for many in the insurance arena but TBG has actually been able to grow through positioning themselves as the premier cutting edge firm with regard to knowledge and delivery of accurate information and advice.

A multi-generational firm, TBG began as a life insurance company started by owner Gary Bottoms’ father in 1947. Now, Bottoms works along with his two adult children, David Bottoms and Laura Higginbotham who each have active specialties within the business. The long-term nature of their services built on relationships, business continuity and succession planning has set TBG apart from its competitors. Not many firms offer the scope of services that The Bottoms Group does. They provide clarity, confidence and direction related to employee benefits and personal insurance planning.
