Former West Virginia Governor W. Gaston Caperton, III, has been joined USI Insurance Services as a senior advisor to help the broker expand in West Virginia, Kentucky and Virginia.
The 32nd governor of West Virginia will also help integrate USI’s six locations in West Virginia, two in Kentucky and three in Virginia that were part of USI’s acquisition of 40 Wells Fargo Insurance brokerage locations across the United States that closed on May 3.
Caperton will be located in USI’s Charleston, West Virginia location.
Caperton brings decades of insurance experience to USI, having led the McDonough Caperton Insurance Group before winning the governor’s office in 1988 and 1992. After leaving office, he taught at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy’s School of Government and Columbia University. In 1999, he became president of the College Board, a position he held until 2012. Prior to joining USI, Caperton headed up Caperton Consulting, LLC for the past two years.
