About Us

History of Service

In 1915 Davenport Sanford founded Sanford, Bruker & Banks insurance agency in downtown Augusta, GA. Mr. Sanford was widely known for his commitment to helping others, his community and his willingness to go the extra mile. Later, his sons-in-law, Ronald Corbitt and Cason Bruker, joined the agency in 1938 and 1947. Through many years of helping clients with their insurance in Augusta the agency continued to hold to the ideals established by Mr. Sanford – Mr. Sanford passed away in 1958. His grandson, Davenport Bruker, joined the agency in 1983 and in1986 became the company’s president and CEO until his passing in March 2018. After Mr. Bruker’s passing Jeffrey W. Banks took over as the company’s president & CEO. Mr. Banks had joined the firm in 1986 and served as the agency’s vice president and CFO until taking over as president & CEO in 2017.

In today’s demanding business climate, our history reminds us of the importance of doing things right, and how to meet our clients needs in an ever changing world. The very values set by Davenport Sanford continue today under Jeffrey Banks guidance and have pushed us to grow into who we are today.
