About Achilles & Associates
Our agency was founded when Jim Achilles purchased King Insurance in September, 1983. Jim went to the University of Texas in 1967 on a football scholarship, where had the privilege of playing on the 1969 and 1970 National Championship Teams. He received his degree in Mechanical Engineering but decided to stay in the insurance business.
David Achilles joined the agency in September, 1995. David graduated from Sam Houston State with a degree in Marketing. He also played football for the Bearkats and earned a conference championship and a trip to the national playoffs. A few months later Jerry joined the agency.
Jerry graduated from Texas Lutheran where he played baseball and earned his degree in marketing.. It was decided at that time to change the name of the agency from King Insurance to Achilles & Associates to reflect the family name and to help in marketing efforts.
