A Foundation of Experience and Expertise
For over a century, Thames Batré has been helping businesses and individuals make smart choices about controlling their exposures and risk. While the risks of today are much more complex and varied than they were when Gus Thames and Lloyd Batré founded the firm in 1891, our approach for managing our client’s risk is as fresh as ever.
Our hallmarks haven’t changed: professional training, high performance people, operational excellence, education, reinvesting, integrity and sustainability.
More than just providing insurance, Thames Batré creates value for our clients through our people, our relationships and our ability to respond effectively to their everyday needs and their complex problems.
The uniqueness of Thames Batré has not gone unrecognized. We consider it a privilege to have been branded as a “Best Practices Agency” by a joint study of Reagan Consulting and the Independent Insurance Agents & Brokers of America (IIABA) for 17 of the last 18 years. This designation involves a process that includes over 1,100 nominees, with only 264 firms being selected in 2020. This represents less than 1% of the independent agencies nationwide. We are proud to be one of only seven in Alabama. It is because of our performance-focused employees that we are counted in this elite group.
