Keith Bowling of Portsmouth has been appointed a full-time agent for American Family Insurance Group, according to Paul Dicuirci, district sales manager for the company.

Bowling said he had to undergo training in Madison, Wis.

“It is a seven week training process at the regional offices. They cover life insurance, death, auto property, and business policies,” Bowling said.

Bowling said he found out about the opportunity by Sean Boldman, who owns an existing American Family Insurance Group office also in Portsmouth.

“American Family looks at room for growth, and obviously the Scioto County area has room, according their numbers for another agent. Sean is the one who told me about the opportunity. It just shows you the caliber of person that Sean Boldman is,” Bowling said.

Bowling said he is looking forward to serving the community and becoming more involved.

“I really just wanted to become more involved in my community, and American Family Insurance has given me the opportunity to do just that,” Bowling said.

Bowling opened an office at 613 Chillicothe St. Suite 201 in Portsmouth on Monday, Nov. 18.

The office is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and by appointment.
