White & Associates Insurance

Dyersburg, Tennessee

A Message From Our President


White & Associates opened its doors to Dyersburg in 1976. My father-in-law, Larry White, started the agency with 3 things in mind:

1

Care for each individual client

2

Support our
community

3

Have fun
along the way

Best Insurance, Best Place to work 2018 award image

Sounds simple, but with the way the world has changed, we don’t always do business with every client face to face the way that Larry could. So now we do some things differently, like communicate through newsletters and Facebook instead of seeing everyone in town at the local diner. We get to see many of you at local events such as high school football games where we cheer on our Dyer County and Dyersburg teams, the Dyer County Fair and the Annual Christmas Parade.

I ask that you hold our agency to the high standard that Larry set forth for us. We value that you rely on us to protect your most important treasures, including your family, home, cars, business and finances.
