Wilks Insurance Agency…
was founded in 1955 by William C. Wilks. “Bill” was a celebrated athlete who helped to capture a state basketball championship in 1949 for Hamilton High School and went on to start for Ohio State’s basketball team and play starting quarterback for the Buckeyes’ football team under the direction of legendary coach Woody Hayes. Bill returned to Hamilton after graduation from the Ohio State University and serving two years of military duty in Europe.

The agency has truly been a family affair from the start, as Bill and his wife Patty were the firm’s first two employees. Bill sold policies while Patty handled clerical and support duties at the office. The agency’s first office was in downtown Hamilton’s Rentschler Building. The agency moved to its current historic North Second Street home in 1965.

Bill’s son, Craig F. Wilks, joined the agency in 1981 after graduating with honors from the University of Tennessee with degrees in Finance and Insurance. Craig became president of the newly-formed agency corporation in 1992. Being instilled with a strong sense of “community” from his family, Craig assumes a number of additional leadership positions on boards throughout Southwestern Ohio, including Chairman of the Board of the Hamilton Community Foundation.

Craig established the second office located in West Chester, Ohio in 1996. Although the agency has grown to be one of the area’s largest independent insurance agencies, it has strived to continue its tradition of hard work and attention to customer service. It is a full service agency with two locations offering you a full range of insurance products at the most competitive rates available in our marketplace.
