Get to know the people of Thames Batré

Leadership that continues to build on a solid foundation.

It was 1891, in downtown Mobile, Alabama, that Thames Batré began as a partnership between Gustav Thames and Lloyd Batré. At that time, the two men could have only imagined that their small beginnings would, 100 years later, evolve into one of the regions most respected and progressive insurance brokerage firms. Although there is no longer a Thames or a Batré in our ranks, the seeds they planted in 1891 continue to grow and prosper. Now, under the thoughtful guidance of today’s group of owners and leaders, Thames Batré continues to add youthful talent with creative and energetic ideas, all assuring a future as bright and promising as our past.
