Memory of the Month: Talking turkey

By on March 1, 2012 at 9:45 AM

That has helped us rise from being the nation’s sixth-largest auto insurer in the 1980s (when I began my career here) to our current status as third-largest. But we’ve always […]

Safe driving: one more reason to give thanks

By on November 22, 2011 at 3:30 PM

Having recently had my beloved 2003 Hyundai Sonata totaled while it was parked innocently on a suburban neighborhood street, I’m a bit more familiar than I’d like to be with the scourge of unsafe driving.

Strike up the band and let’s get this party started! It’s GEICO’s birthday today! Yes, the company Leo Goodwin had the nerve to launch during the Great Depression is now 75 years young. I say young because, unlike some septuagenarians, GEICO still acts like a brash upstart in many ways. Our ads amuse some and […]
