Art started Art Janes Insurance back in 1962. His vision was to provide South Hillsborough County with an insurance agency they could trust. Art has seen his vision grow into a reality.

Art Janes Insurance is the oldest and largest agency in what is now called South Shore. Art Janes Insurance serves several thousand personal lines clients in and around the Hillsborough County area. In 1988, Art saw the community was in need of an insurance agency that specialized in commercial insurance so he started Gulf Coast Commercial Insurance, which not only serves the business needs of our local community, but also serves clients all over the State of Florida and several out of state clients.

Kathy first entered the insurance Industry in 1977, as a customer service representative for Best Insurance Agency, right here in Sun City Center. She soon learned how to offer clients the coverage they needed and during her tenure at Best became a fully-licensed general lines agent.

In 1990, an excellent opportunity arose for her to join the Art Janes Insurance Organization, in our old office on Rickenbacker Drive. Our primary focus was insurance for individuals and families, but a portion of our practice was devoted to insuring local businesses. In 2001, another opportunity arose, (within our organization), and she decided to devote herself exclusively to the commercial side of our business, joining forces with John Yoho in the service, care and maintenance of our valued commercial clients.

Kathy is currently active in our local business community, maintaining active roles in the Sun City Center Chamber of Commerce, South Shore Chamber of Commerce and the Riverview Chamber of Commerce. Please call at your convenience for a complimentary review of your program of corporate protection! Hope to hear from you soon.
