Wes Dugan,CLU


Wes Dugan works with individuals and families who want to protect their personal assets. He provides home, auto, and life, and products to cover all of the unexpected events in your life.


If you ask a few of his clients how they would describe Wes, you will hear words such as passionate, professional, problem solver, value, and trust. When you choose to work with Wes, you get all of this and more. You will also hear “he cares”. If you ask Wes the key to his success, he will tell you that building strong, long lasting relationships is at the top of his list along with a desire to educate his customers so they can make the best buying decision for them and their situation.


After graduating from North Carolina State with a bachelor’s degree in Economics and a Masters Degree in Agricultural Economics in 1998, Wes went to work for Novartis as a sales manager. This fit right into his agricultural background since his responsibility was to provide agricultural chemical products to farmers in the Middle Tennessee area through local dealers. It also afforded him the opportunity to start building relationships with the people he wanted to serve. He still maintains strong ties with his previous customers to this day even after being out of the agricultural chemical business for over seven years.


After a successful career with Novartis, Wes was looking to make a change. A friend introduced him to Farm Bureau Insurance Tennessee. This has proven to be a good move for Wes and for the people he serves. It gives him the opportunity to not only serve farmers in Middle Tennessee, but to also serve other individuals and families such as professionals or white collar workers. Remember, you don’t have to be farmer to have Farm Bureau Insurance.


Being an independent insurance agent in Wilson County gives Wes the opportunity he seeks to be involved, to serve, and to give back to the community. Building stronger relationships, being a part of the community, personal one-on-one attention for his clients, and personally being there in a time of need are all very important to Wes. You can go anywhere to buy insurance but if you want a trusted advisor who truly cares about your needs and your ability to handle any crisis that may come up in your life, Wes is the one you want in your corner.
