Military Mears: GEICO-sponsored driver’s car and fire suit reflect company’s affinity for those who serve

By on May 27, 2014 at 3:31 PM

Next time you’re watching a NASCAR race, keep an eye out for the 13 car – mostly white, with green, blue and military camouflage accents. Behind the wheel of that speeding beauty, you’ll find Casey Mears. And behind Mears and his racing team, you’ll find GEICO and a great commitment to serving members of the […]

Memory of the Month: the most important meal of the day

By on April 25, 2014 at 2:18 PM

Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills. I’ll have one – or two, even! Griddles sizzling, crepes cooking … why wasn’t I invited? Well, it might have been because I wasn’t working at GEICO yet. I’m not exactly sure when this photo was shot, but […]

Memory of the Month: Racks of records

By on March 25, 2014 at 9:14 AM

Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills. This mid-1970s photo shows how GEICO stored policy records and other company information as it moved into the computer age. These IBM 3420 tape drives held about 120 megabytes of data. But converting from paper files to this […]

Memory of the Month: Print and mail

By on February 27, 2014 at 12:10 PM

Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills. When Leo Goodwin launched GEICO in 1936, his fledgling company was built on a foundation of direct mail. The operation required lots of printing, so to keep costs as low as possible, GEICO had its own printing facilities […]

Memory of the Month: Safe and secure

By on January 27, 2014 at 2:21 PM

Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills. This one really speaks to me. You see, in a former life, during my two-year “sabbatical” from college during my freshman year, one of the jobs I had was as a security guard. I WAS this guy for […]

Memory of the Month: Winter wonderland

By on December 12, 2013 at 3:07 PM

Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills. I’m not sure when this photo was taken, but it was on a day much like this one. I’m writing this post on a snowy, icy morning when many D.C.-area businesses closed or delayed opening, but not GEICO. […]

Memory of the Month: Giving thanks

By on November 27, 2013 at 3:31 PM

Kids, you won’t believe this, but once upon a time, televisions did not have flat screens, and if you wanted to change the channel, you had to get up and walk to the TV to do it. The only time the words “high definition” went together was when you were looking up the word “high” […]

Memory of the Month: Building a better GEICO

By on October 30, 2013 at 11:17 AM

Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills. I work at GEICO’s corporate headquarters, just on the Maryland side of the northwest boundary of Washington, D.C. This building opened in 1959, but because the company was growing so rapidly, we needed additional space quickly, and the […]

Memory of the Month: the man in the middle

By on September 27, 2013 at 4:08 PM

Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills. Earlier this month, as we do every year, we celebrated GEICO’s birthday. It has been 77 years since the company’s founder, Leo Goodwin, pulled up stakes in Fort Worth, Texas, and moved the brand-new Government Employees Insurance Company […]

Memory of the Month: Develop yourself, dog-gone it!

By on August 27, 2013 at 2:08 PM

Each month, we share an image from GEICO’s past and invite you to exercise your caption-writing skills. Like any other company, GEICO strives to hire the best and the brightest. But it’s nearly impossible to find entry-level employees who already know all about insurance – after all, who grows up dreaming of one day having […]
