Sanford & Tatum Insurance, an IIABA Best Practices Agency, was founded in 1935 in the developing town of Lubbock, Texas by C. A. Sanford and his son, Marion. As the young community became an established university town, Sanford & Tatum Insurance Agency grew into an outstanding regional resource, offering comprehensive insurance protection and superior service to businesses and individuals in many states.
Your business is worth protecting. Insurance plays an important role in that defense, but it’s only one element of a larger strategy to manage, mitigate and understand risk. That’s why Sanford & Tatum does more than just sell insurance products. We partner with you to safeguard every aspect of your business—including liability, business assets, employee safety and much more. Yes, we sell insurance. But our priority is to protect and defend your business.
Our firm dates back to 1935. The world has seen a remarkable amount of change since then, but our commitment to our community and deep client relationships are the same today as they were nearly a century ago. Those relationships—and our continuity of business—have allowed us to build a storehouse of knowledge for generations of West Texans. We’re known for our “deep bench.” Our roster of team members offers insight, expertise and experience across multiple industries, including Agriculture, Oil & Gas, Construction, Transportation, Professional Services, Technology, Manufacturing, Healthcare, Medical Malpractice, and Employee Benefits. At the same time, we do more than insure businesses. We also protect personal assets, providing affordable and all-inclusive coverage for home, auto, life and more.
In an uncertain, ever-changing world, you want something concrete to hold onto. That’s why we provide our clients a dedicated Stewardship Department. Always just an email or phone call away, this department has precisely one job: to go the extra mile for clients in areas not directly related to insurance. Through this committed, direct relationship, you’ll enjoy access to industry and HR professionals. You’ll benefit from loss-control consulting and industry-specific training. You’ll learn from specialty seminars and much more. Our clients and community are our future. If you don’t flourish, then neither do we.
