Since 1925, Wallace Welch & Willingham has offered the best marine insurance in Tampa Bay.

In 1925, what is known today as Wallace Welch & Willingham began with an agency contract between the St. Paul Fire & Marine Insurance Company and John P. Welch. In 1964, William Wallace and John I. Welch merged their companies together to form the Wallace-Welch Agency. The agency became even bigger when in 1968, the Bennett Agency and the John B Green Agency joined to form Bennett Wallace Welch & Green Insurance, Inc. Finally, in 1984, Wallace Welch & Willingham, Inc. was born as a result of both the merger of Weyman Willingham & Co and Bennett Wallace Welch & Green, and the acquisition of Stambaugh and Associates. In the decades since, the agency has continued to fulfill its mission of providing the best marine insurance in the area.
