Davis joins insurance division for The Norton Agency

Veteran insurance agent and business owner R. Stacy Davis has joined The Norton Agency’s Insurance Division after a 22-year career with Allstate.

He will work from the main office at 434 Green St. handling residents and business owners of Hall County and surrounding areas.

“After a long career of serving clients through Allstate, I am looking forward to the opportunity to work in an independent agency that represents so many diverse and competitive insurance companies like The Norton Agency,” Davis said. “I like the fact that I have such flexibility in placing my client’s needs first and helping them obtain the best coverage for the best price.”

“We are extremely excited to have an agent of Stacy’s experience and capabilities join our growing and expanding agency force,” said Bob Norton, CEO of Norton Insurance. “He is a native of Hall County and has deep roots in our community and we look forward to him expanding our footprint in and around the area. The relationships that he has built with his clients through the years make him an extremely knowledgeable and valuable member of our team.”

Davis is a 1987 graduate of North Hall High School and 1991 University of Georgia graduate. He and his wife, Laura, live in Gainesville with their two sons. He can be reached at 770-718-5223 or at
