Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to comment or exercise your caption-writing skills. We revere Leo Goodwin here at GEICO. He was GEICO’s founder – a man who gave up an executive position at another insurer to launch his own insurance company. Without agents, contrary to what was by […]

Memory of the Month: Clearing a path

By on January 30, 2015 at 10:03 AM

Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills. I love this picture. Can you guess why?

Memory of the Month: ‘I was born a Ramblin’ Man …’

By on November 28, 2014 at 9:23 AM

Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills. OK, maybe I wasn’t born in the back seat of a Greyhound bus, rollin’ down Highway 41, like it says in the Allman Brothers’ song, but I did spend chunks of my “formative years” in the back seat […]

Memory of the Month: In your face!

By on October 29, 2014 at 12:08 PM

Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills. Here’s a motivational tactic that hasn’t really stood the test of time.

Play ball! Get ready for baseball’s best

By on October 2, 2014 at 4:34 PM

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and not because the kids are back in school, although that’s nice, too. Rather, I refer to the wondrousness that is playoff baseball. I’ve been an Orioles fan almost all my life, and we’re giddy to have our team back in the post-season. It has been WAY […]

For me, it’s a time to recall the early history of this company, and the people who built the company where I’ve been […]

Memory of the Month: Dance like there’s nobody watching

By on August 26, 2014 at 8:40 AM

Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills. Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett, whose company owns GEICO, has said he enjoys his job so much that he tap-dances to work every day. That’s a feeling apparently shared by this group of GEICO employees. Judging from the […]

Memory of the Month: GEICO, a groundbreaking company

By on July 24, 2014 at 11:48 AM

Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills. On this very day, 57 years ago, GEICO’s founder, Leo Goodwin, sank a shovel into the earth to begin (symbolically, at least) construction of the building that would become GEICO’s new headquarters. With his business steadily growing since […]
