Your local insurance agency

Mark and Wendy Bowery, both natives of Kingsport, Tennessee, purchased the VFIS Book of Business in March 1992 and built an insurance company focused on serving the insurance needs of volunteer fire and rescue organizations and EMS providers in Tennessee and Virginia. After more than three decades of growth, J. Mark Bowery Insurance became a division of Correll Insurance Group in January 2020. Mark still represents VFIS and Correll as the VFIS Regional Director for the same Tennessee/Virginia territory that he has been so involved in over the past 36+ years.

A Strong Partnership to Better Serve Clients

Unlike those big-name agencies, we don’t work for one insurance carrier with a one-size-fits-all solution. We instead get to know you personally to help you compare insurance rates and coverage choices. We are a Trusted Choice® independent agency and represent most of the nation’s leading business, personal, and auto insurance companies. It’s easy to see why J. Mark Bowery Insurance has earned the trust and respect of Kingsport policyholders.

You may also call (423) 250-1501 to speak to an agent. Requesting a quote is not a guarantee of coverage. All coverages are subject to the terms, conditions, and exclusions of the actual policy issues. Not all policies or coverages are available in every state.

The staff of Bowery Insurance is timely in their responses and friendly each time I speak with them. I enjoy speaking to any member of their staff.
