Craig & Preston Insurance Agency: Since 1980

Commercial Insurance in Charlotte, NC by Craig & Preston Insurance AgencyIt started with two men: Mike Craig and Steve Preston. Both Mike & Steve began their insurance careers as employees of the Travelers Insurance company in the mid-’70s. Both were employed under a three-year Agent Development Program and upon graduation, both had their own agency.

Before the internet, before personal computers and cell phones in every household, Mike Craig and Steve Preston were looking for better ways to provide a wider variety of risk management solutions at competitive prices. In 1980, they combined forces and formed Craig & Preston Insurance Agency, an independent multi-line agency.
