  Founder William "Bill" R. Love

Bill began his caBILL.JPGreer in Insurance in 1962 and formed Gulf South Insurance Agency (GSIA) in 1969. Bill Love had a vision to reach the world one person at a time. He built his client base by word of mouth. He never had to advertise to build his book of business. His philosophy was gaining a customer was like gaining a friendship. His clients stayed with him from the very beginning. In 1989 he decided to branch out into Property and Casualty insurance. He was especially intrigued in the transportation industry.  He always would say “if trucks stopped moving freight in America, the country itself would stop”. He loves trucks. He landed his first transportation contract and the rest is history.  

Since those early days, GSIA continues to carry his legacy and grow as a Trucking Agency in the Baton Rouge area. Bill Love, lovingly referred to as "Mr. Chairman” has made his mark in the transportation insurance industry and his beliefs are carried on by the staff at GSIA in providing exceptional customer service and dependability are paramount.

GSIA is a major competitor in insurance for the transportation industry. For almost 50 years GSIA has helped protect business owners, individuals, and families by offering a diverse range of policies from insurers to people. We have a combined 100 years of experience on our team. We provide an essential service while impacting the lives of people along the way. This business is not just a job to us, this is who we are. We believe in building relationships with those who will bring value to our customers that are the most important.
