ESOP Helps Higginbotham ‘Share The Vision’ Of Success

Downtown Ft. Worth, Texas, is undergoing a renaissance. A city built upon the sweat and hard work of the people who drove cattle into the town along the Chisholm Trail, it continues to evolve into a world-class center of commerce and culture.

Construction equipment moves acres of earth in the reconstruction of a freeway extension that is part of a long-range plan to redevelop the citys downtown area. In a sense, this evolution is symbolic of the emergence of National Underwriters first “Commercial Insurance Agency of the Year”–Higginbotham & Associates in Ft. Worth–as a growing local and national power.

Begun as a one-man personal lines agency around World War II, today the office sits on a corner near the edge of the freeway project. In a sense, Higginbotham is working to make sure the agencys success continues to mirror the downtown areas development–after modest beginnings, imagination and investment created a boomtown with influence beyond the borders of Texas.

The Higginbotham story is a tale of hard work, dedication, and a unique attitude that gives every employee a share in the agencys future, summed up in a catchphrase hung throughout its offices: “Share The Vision.”
